Grapefruit + Apple Cider Vinegar Drink
Whoa. Hey there. It’s been a while. Where have I been you might ask? Well, funny story. We moved across the country. Again.
Some big life changes had me missing home and ready to be closer to my family. That big emotional roller coaster helped encourage me to better myself in more than one way. That’s where this post (and Organic Apple Cider Vinegar) comes in.
Random fact: Consuming two tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar with the mother daily offers the maximum benefit from the high volume of polyphenols, which improve digestion, boost the immune system, combat cholesterol, prevent dandruff, sooth sore throats, keep skin healthy, and reduce excess fat in cells, promoting weight loss.
I hae used it as a marinade, drizzled over grilled vegetables, in salad dressings and even on its own as a daily health supplement for ages. THIS drink is by far my favorite way to add my daily dose into my diet. Pair the vinegar with the slightly sweet and tangy flavor of grapefruit and you have got a morning drink to start your day off right!
The recipe is simple and easily adaptable to your taste. I always start with fresh grapefruit juice. The secret is picking a grapefruit is finding one that is slightly red in color and still fairly firm to the touch.
When you get a perfectly ripe fruit it should be just sweet enough. If you want to add a little more tang mix in a little fresh orange juice. Need it a little more on the sweet side? Stir in a spoon full of honey!
- 1 cup fresh squeezed grapefruit juice
- 2 tablespoons organic apple cider vinegar
Stir your ingredients together. Pour over ice and enjoy!
Add a dash of orange juice and/or honey to sweeten your drink as needed.
