What's In That 32oz Powerade Coke Pres. Buys Her Kid Post Exercise?

Not sure if you saw this interview with Katie Bayne, the President and General Manager of Sparkling Beverages for Coca-Cola, but in it this Mom of 2 recounts how,

"if my son has lacrosse practice for three hours, we go straight to McDonald’s and buy a 32-ounce Powerade."
That intrigued me and so I visited my friendly neighborhood online nutrition database and I crunched some numbers for 32-ounce Mountain Blast Powerades (the kind sold by McDonald's).

As you might imagine, there's a whole pile of sugar, a bit of salt, some vitamins and some food coloring.

Thought I'd try my hand at creating a home made version and at the same time make my first ever video blog (please forgive a bit of camera shake when viewing fullscreen).
