Skratch Secret Sauce

Make Your Skratch Super High-Carb Sport Drink Mix Go Further: How To Make Skratch Secret Sauce.

Bringing new meaning to getting sauced, Secret Sauce will provide you with a real food fuel option using just 2 ingredients: applesauce and Skratch High-Carb Sport Drink Mix!

The only activity more fun than eating Secret Sauce is playing with it, aka customizing it to meet your electrolyte and carbohydrate needs.

As a starting point, combine 2 scoops (~30g) of Super High-Carb Sport Drink Mix + ½ cup (~122g) of applesauce = approximately 185 calories, 45 g carbohydrates and 115 mg sodium.

If you want a thicker, gel-like consistency sauce with higher calories, we recommend combining 3.5 scoops (~52.5g) of Super High-Carb Sport Drink Mix + ~90g applesauce = approximately 250 calories, 61g carbohydrates, 200 mg sodium.


Take it to go by adding it to your 250 mL soft flask or have it as a pre-training snack at home. This is a great performance fuel option of you are burnt out on liquid fuels, gel options or struggle to chew on real food during training or racing.

If you like a tart flavor, try Lemon + Lime High-Carb with applesauce. For a more fruity flavor, try Raspberry High-Carb with applesauce. The Skratch staff's favorite combo was the “strawberry lemonade sauce” using strawberry flavored applesauce + 2 heaping scoops (~30g) of Lemon + Lime High-Carb Drink Mix.

Since we always recommend doing your “me”-search during training, we highly recommend testing different combinations to find the best Sauce formulation for your taste preferences and energy needs!

Without enough water and electrolytes, carbohydrate absorption can be difficult and cause those not-so-fun GI issues.
