Liquid Flavouring Substitute?

Mixing up my MAG-10/Workout Fuel this morning and couldn’t remember where I kept my stock of liquid flavouring. Any suggestions for a quick, one-off replacement that I can pick up at a grocery store? Gatorade mix? A whole bunch of Crystal Lite? Thanks.

Crystal lite will work. Could affect absorption of the MAG-10/workout fuel but it’ll do in a pinch

Try Crystal Lite, sure. Don’t try Mio though. Did that with MAG-10 once and it was not good at all.

Ended up with Crystal Lite. Didn’t portion it properly, so a little too sweet, but it worked in a pinch.

For whatever it’s worth, I don’t know a darn thing about MAG-10 or what it does but Crystal Light is chock full of alcohol sugars and WILL spike your blood sugar.
