Apple Cider Vinegar Detox Drink

If you would like to help boost your metabolism and detoxify your digestive track (among many other benefits), I highly suggest that you give this revitalizing detox drink a try!

Because the benefits of apple cider vinegar are becoming so well known, it has become a staple in many home pantries. I not only use it for this warm drink every morning, but I also use it to make homemade salad dressing, for baking, and I also add 1/2 cup to my bath water every so often! I’ve also read that it makes for a superb natural facial toner and hair detangled. Who knew!?

I find this detox tea to be quite refreshing and energizing, so I like to drink it first thing when I wake up, but you can also drink it before bed or anytime of the day that works for you.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup of hot water
  • 2 tbsp of organic apple cider vinegar
  • 1-2 tbsp of fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp of raw honey
  • 1 tsp of ground cinnamon
  • 1 small pinch of cayenne pepper

INSTRUCTIONS:

Combine all of the ingredients and stir well. Enjoy!

TIPS:

  1. The cinnamon and cayenne tends to settle to the bottom, so keep a spoon in your mug to stir regularly if you like to take your time enjoying the drink.
  2. Not everyone loves vinegar as much as I do, so feel free to tweak the recipe to your liking. My husband likes to add a little extra honey and lemon juice.
  3. Fresh ginger is also a fantastic addition to this recipe, but I don’t usually have it on hand so I didn’t include it.
  4. Sometimes I make this drink with my favorite hot tea in place of the hot water (green tea, black tea, lemon ginger, cinnamon, etc.). It gives it a little extra flavor as well as added health benefits.
  5. Based on my very quick calculations, I’m estimating that this drink has about 80 calories.
