Make your own energy gels in 5 minutes

The recipe is really simple, it has two ingredients, and takes 5 minutes:

  • 1 part fructose
  • 2 parts maltodextrin
  • Some water (the amount is up to you depending on how thick you want the gel)

In this example I used:

  • 200 grams fructose
  • 400 grams maltodextrin
  • 400 ml water

The process

  1. Heat the water to just below boiling
  2. Stir in all the sugar
  3. Mix
  4. Pour into bottles
  5. If you want: add flavoring
  6. Also optional: add other stuff like caffeine

While riding I carry it in the small plastic bottle that you can see in the photo

Maltodextrin and Fructose

2 parts Maltodextrin, 1 part Fructose, some water

Stir all the sugar into the warm water

Add flavoring... if you like

Store the energy gel in bottles

Pour the gel into one of these bottles for taking along a ride
