Start your morning right, everyday!

Paleo Friendly RecipeSweet, tart and detoxifying, this “tea” refreshes you and provides some awesome benefits! The main ingredient is organic apple cider vinegar (ACV) and it packs a punch! It aids in weight loss, helps control blood sugar, boosts energy, improves immunity, metabolism, digestion, acne, hair, breath and more! Read about more benefits and sources here! It really is a super-food to keep in your pantry. Many people attribute these benefits to the “mother” which is a pretty creepy name for the strand-like chains of protein enzyme molecules floating around making the liquid look cloudy. No studies have proven that, so whether you have a bottle with or without the “mother” fear not, you will only gain from giving this ingredient a try.

The most common way of using ACV is by ingesting it. You can also try rinsing your hair with it after shampooing, using it as a toner on your face before bed, swish it around in your mouth to whiten teeth, rub onto skin to heal a mild sunburn, the possibilities are endless!

Today we’re drinking it! As this apple cider vinegar drink is pretty potent, we’re diluting it with warm water and some other beneficial ingredients! Simply warm up some water and mix in all your ingredients. Make sure to use fresh lemon juice (squeeze it yourself!) for the most benefits. Adding cayenne is optional, but it’s what gives this drink it’s extra immunity boosting powers. If you add just a dash, you won’t taste it.

This drink is sweet, tart and warming. I find it energizes and wakes me up at the first sip!

I’ve even started skipping my morning coffee and opting for this instead. Of course, our Bulletproof coffee is still a favorite, but a good balance of ketogenic and paleo mornings does us good!

    Can I prep this for days at a time or do I have to prepare it daily?

    • Vicky March 28, 2017 at 10:44 am - Reply

      Prepping daily would be best! The lemon juice has a tendency to turn too sour if left over night.

    Does this help lower blood sugar?

    • Vicky March 22, 2017 at 11:11 am - Reply

      Cinnamon has been shown to help stabilize blood sugar!

    The recipe doesn’t mention the tea you use. Would a tea with cinnamon give the same benefit as putting in the cinnamon so it wouldn’t be gritty. Is there a good herbal tea to use?

    • Vicky March 19, 2017 at 9:33 pm - Reply

      This recipe doesn’t use actual tea, it makes a tea! You can, of course, add any tea you’d like. Cinnamon tea sounds like a great idea 🙂

    should it hurt your throat when you drink this?

    • Vicky March 15, 2017 at 1:43 pm - Reply

      Definitely not! Cut back on the apple cider vinegar 🙂

    How long do you drink it

    • Vicky March 14, 2017 at 1:28 pm - Reply

      As long as you’d like!

  7. Dana Alexander March 9, 2017 at 12:05 pm - Reply

    I started this on Monday and while I enjoy the taste, I had to cut back on the cinnamon. It will not dissolve, leaving the drink extremely gritty and difficult to finish. I’ve tried different temps for the drink and that hasn’t help. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

    • Vicky March 9, 2017 at 7:24 pm - Reply

      Hi Dana, the cinnamon never really dissolves, it’s not a liquid! You simply keep stirring to help distribute it evenly in the drink. Hope that helps!

        I actually put mine in a blender bottle and shake it up. It helps mix it in a bit better.

        • Vicky March 28, 2017 at 10:41 am

          Thanks for the tip, Ann!

    Im a coffe lover, can i have it at night instead?

    • Vicky March 9, 2017 at 9:36 am - Reply

      That’s fine! Go for it.

  9. Roxybear February 28, 2017 at 5:39 pm - Reply

    Love it!! How often can you drink this? I’m wondering about 3-4 times daily, before each meal? Thanks!! 🙂

    • Vicky March 6, 2017 at 8:44 am - Reply

      I would stick to once or twice daily. Too much apple cider vinegar can be harmful to tooth enamel!

    I woke up with a sore throat this am, so I tried this. Do you only drink it once a day in the am?

    • Vicky February 8, 2017 at 3:51 am - Reply

      Feel free to drink it whenever you like!

    Can cinnamon essential oil be substituted ?

    • Vicky January 31, 2017 at 5:19 am - Reply

      I think that would work!
