1. Apple cider vinegar and honey with lemon
We’ve learned that taking apple cider vinegar straight isn’t great for you. So, why not try mixing ACV into a delicious drink?
Mixing a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar with a cup of water, a squeeze of lemon juice and a teaspoon of honey creates a tasty, sweet drink.
You could even add a pinch of cinnamon for extra flavour or add more honey to make it sweeter! (Make it a teaspoon of Manuka honey
, and it’ll be even better!)
2. Water with apple cider vinegar
A simple but effective way to take your shot of apple cider vinegar is to simply mix your ACV into a glass of water.
You can add anywhere up to two teaspoons into your water but remember to start small if you’re just starting to introduce apple cider vinegar to your diet.
3. Take an apple cider vinegar gummy
Maybe the most efficient and easiest way to introduce apple cider vinegar into your routine is to take apple cider vinegar gummies.
These pre-made gummies contain a carefully measured dose of apple cider vinegar, so there’s no messy measuring for you to do. Another bonus is that these gummies often have other vitamins added to them, so they’ll benefit you in other ways too.
They also often don’t have too much of a taste, so if the thought of consuming vinegar feels weird to you, this could be the best way to take apple cider vinegar.
4. Add apple cider vinegar to a salad dressing
Quick and easy, an apple cider vinegar salad dressing is a tasty way to not only take your daily taste of ACV but also add a bit of flavour to your favourite salad.
Our favourite salad dressing recipe is super simple. You’ll only need one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, three tablespoons of any cooking oil, one crushed garlic clove and salt and pepper. Simply mix it all and drizzle over your salad!
5. Take it as a shot with water, lemon juice, honey, and turmeric
Perhaps a bit different to the shots you might take at the weekend, taking apple cider vinegar diluted and mixed with other ingredients as a small shot, particularly in the morning, can really kickstart your day.
All you need is some water, lemon juice, honey, turmeric, and apple cider vinegar.
Mix a squeeze of lemon, one teaspoon of honey (two if you want it a bit sweeter), a quarter of a teaspoon of turmeric, and one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a small cup of water and (if you have enough) separate the mix out into small shots.
Once you’re more familiar with apple cider vinegar, you can work your way up to two tablespoons.
6. Mix into your favourite recipes
If you’re keen to start cooking with apple cider vinegar, there are some easy ways to add ACV to some of your favourite recipes.
For instance, if you’re a fan of chutney or jam, you can add a tablespoon or two to your favourite recipe for a hint of acidity. You can even try adding apple cider vinegar to cooking sauces or even stews.
7. In a pickle!
For a more mellow, sweet taste when pickling your favourite vegetables, swap out regular vinegar for apple cider vinegar!
ACV is a much less harsh alternative to other vinegar types, so when using apple cider in your pickles
, they’ll be slightly less sour. You can even add herbs and spices to your pickle for a completely unique taste.
8. Add it to your tea
Green tea is thought to contain some great nutrients, so combine that with a splash of apple cider vinegar and well, your tea will really pack a punch!
Simply brew your green tea as normal and add a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar.
Give it a stir and voila! For a sweeter taste, you can even mix in a teaspoon of honey or a squeeze of lemon.
What's even better is that you can drink your green tea and apple cider vinegar cold or hot! If you want to drink it cold, pop it in the fridge to chill and add some ice to your glass when you’re ready to drink!
