I was wondering if anyone makes there own energy gels or semi-liquid to liquid supplements. I have been making my own sugar-free and simple sugar "gatorade" for about a year now. I am now looking at making my own energy gels with both simple sugars for shorter rides (2-3 hours) and complex carbs and protein for longer rides (> 3 hours). Has anyone tried this. Would you like to share your recipes?
I have heard of using bananas and chocolate for a simple homemade gel-pack. I am thinking if using rice or tapioca as a thickener for some of the gels. They are both neutral in flavour making the addition of fruit or other foods easy.
Any other suggestions?
I will be experimenting for the next month or so and will update on what I get out of this if anything at all.
