Apple cider vinegar tops the charts for superfoods in my opinion. It benefits the body in so many ways, both for optimizing wellness and helping with ailments. Taken regularly it can truly be life changing. Click here to find out a few ways apple cider vinegar can benefit your life.

Let’s face it, apple cider vinegar just doesn’t taste that great. But the benefits are more than worth the funny faces as you choke it down. For me it often resulted in a lack of taking it. It just plain doesn’t taste that great. So over time I started adding it to different juices and I created these apple cider vinegar recipes that I can even get my kids to drink.

5 Apple Cider Vinegar Recipes

Zingy Cranberry Cocktail

1-2 Tbs. Apple cider vinegar (like this)

2 Tbs. Cranberry Juice (like this)

1 1/2 C. Water

2 tsp. Maple syrup (like this)

Stir together and drink.

Note: I love the addition of cranberry. Cranberries are loaded with antioxidants. They also are beneficial to urinary tract, digestive, and heart health. 

Old-fashioned Sweet Blaster

1 1/2 C. water

1-2 Tbs. Apple cider vinegar (like this)

2 tsp. Black strap molasses (like this)

 Stir together and drink. I recommend using this drink in the morning.

Note: This recipe not only gives you the awesome benefits of ACV, but you also get the much-needed nutrients like; iron, magnesium, manganese, and calcium, that are in molasses. Molasses is good for your hair, and a safe sweetener for diabetics.

Tomato Cider Slinger

1 1/2 C. Fresh or canned tomato juice

1-2 Tbs. Apple cider vinegar (like this)

 1/2 tsp. Sea salt (like this)

A few drops of hot sauce (optional)

Stir together and drink.

Note: In my opinion this is one of the easiest ways to drink apple cider vinegar. So, if you are a lover of tomato juice you may actually really enjoy this drink.

Pink  Super Juice

1 1/2 C. Fresh grapefruit juice ( I prefer using pink grapefruit)

1-2 Tbs. Apple cider vinegar (like this)

2 tsp. Raw honey

Stir together and drink. This juice is great for before every meal.

Note: If you are looking to drop a few pounds, this juice may become your best friend. Both the ACV and the grapefruit will help you out. Grapefruit also lowers cholesterol,and  helps prevent cancer and arthritis.

The Shot

1 Tbs. Apple cider vinegar (like this)

1 Tbs. water or apple juice

Just take it straight up! Plug your nose and hold your breathe, and don’t forget a chaser.

  2. Great recipes! I make a batch of vinaigrette with the ACV and have a little salad with lunch every day. Because you want the acidity then! Love your pairing with cranberry juice, bet the tart goes well with the vinegar.

  4. I love acv I losr 5kg in weight I feel great and health is going ok
    I take it like that but was told in the book that braggs family did you shouldnt drinkbit without the honey in it.
    We clean all our house with it and our hair and animals
    Oh it also remove moles on body
    Thanks for reading

  5. My family loves passing down natural remedies and I have heard about apple cider vinegar for years now. I recently posted some easy ACV detox drink recipes on my blog that take the same time and effort as coffee or tea to prepare. Drinking ACV daily is amazing for energy but for those who can’t acquire a taste for the drink you may prefer adding ACV to your meals…I’ve compiled everything from appetizer to dessert recipes on my blog.

    • MY mother used vinegar on almost any meat she cooked. Beef, pork, etc. She also kept a container in the summertime with vinegar, fresh tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, sugar to sweeten, salt and pepper. This was usually served with fresh vegetables and meat. She just added to it throughout the growing season.

  7. I love to use the ACV, but I hurt real bad after, my stomach !!!! so what do I do ??? used to love adding it to salad dressing, but have stopped now. Please tell me how to take it without it bothering my stomach… TY

    • I don’t know what is causing your distress when taking ACV. But you could try diuting it a lot and sipping on it throughout the day. That way your stomach wouldn’t get any kind of shock.

    • If your stomach is getting irritated that easily you might need to consider a gut healing protocol. Any history of ulcers (h-pylori)?

    • Yikes. I don’t know how any of you drink ACV straight up or near it!! In the past I had tried shooting a shot of ACV, followed with a chaser of water, 15 seconds later I was vomiting the whole thing!!
      I don’t deny the benefits of ACV, just how it’s taken. I take a tablespoon of ACV in at least 2 cups of water with no issues, but I’m looking forward to trying SOME of these other drinks. 🙂

      • Good morning
        our family make apple cider and apple cider vinegar.
        I cannot drink it straight up like my husband but I can drink it if I mix it with apple cider , that way I do not notice the vinegar at all,
        I also mix the vinegar with some olive oil and fresh garlic , some s and p and I have a wonderful salad dressing. I use it on lettuce salad but also just put some cucumbers and tomatoes in a bowl , pour some dressing over it and put in the fridge for about an hour then serve….sooooo gooood and refreshing during hot summer months!

  10. Great variety of recipes, thank you.
    I just happen to crave vinegar since I was a child. I remember when my mom needed to borrow some vinegar and sent me on errand across the gully to my Auntie to pick it up. Great fun for me because I had the fastest technical running trail from one side to the other. On my trek back home I would stop an sip some vinegar, and again some more. I got ‘caught’, my Uncle watched me through his binoculars and teased me later about seeing me sipping from the jar of vinegar. Getting into ‘big trouble’ was certainly not a problem during my youth. Yes, I was definitely raised a rural free range child running the trails (often barefoot) from here to there and all my sage and Juniper landscaped forts in between.
    Cheers,

  11. I use apple cider every day in a salad and I mix apple cider with raw unfiltered local honey and take that by the shotglass. Double health shot!!

  12. I take ACV each morning with equal parts honey, usually 1 tbsp. each. I add about 1/4 c. hot water to melt the honey and 1/4 c. orange juice.

    • Do u use the raw honey like most recipes call for or just a regular bottle like the one in the bear bottle. Thnx. I cannot afford that raw honey.

    • I have a similar shot recipe but use the OJ as a chaser. I also use Agave instead of honey. Agave has a slower sugar breakdown.

  13. I have acid reflux and was prescribed all sorts of drugs to alleviate the discomfort. An herbalist friend suggested ACV. So every morning and afternoon I drink 1 TBS ACV in a cup with 3 slices fresh ginger and 1 tsp. raw local honey and I have no need for the drugs! For those comments above who dislike the taste of ACV, I assure you it’s an acquired taste- I now love it, and look forward to my “tea time” twice a day.

    • This sounds wonderful! As I have gotten older, it seems like everything gives me heartburn. I have had to cut out high fructose corn syrup from my diet anytime I can. I really don’t like to take Tums or any of that other stuff. I look forward to giving this a try! Thank you!

    • Do you drink this like a tea hot? Or just the few ingredients you mention here like a shot. Just did not see hot water for a tea like drink. Sounds great tho. Thanks!

  14. Sparkling lemonade! Mix the juice of six lemons, a bit of stevia to taste (or honey), and 1/2 cup ACV in a pitcher of ice cold water. Mmmm, lemonade with a zing!!

  15. Just like Emily Savage, I like ACV in a tall glass of lemonade. However, I cheat and use Simply Pink Lemonade w/ Raspberry. The ACV makes it a bit tart, but I crave it now instead of pop every night with my dinner.

  16. I take Apple Cider Vinegar-2 tablespoons in tall glass of water with liquid stevia. This makes it takes great & I don’t have any of the sweeteners. Is it supposed to make you urinate more often? My daughter has interstitial cystitis(sensitive bladder) and it makes her have to go more often. But I also read that ACV should help with this condition. Your thoughts?

  17. I drink it in a 20 oz. container with 1/8 tsp of macha tea mixed in about 4 oz. of warm water and a two shakes of cinnamon and mix it very well with a hand blender that you stick in a tall glass, add 2 tbs of acv , 1-2 tsp of honey, mix that real well, add 1/4-1/2 cup of 100% apple juice, add ice to top and mix again. I saw this on a blog somewhere. It looks like swamp water, but you can get yourself to think it tastes like apple pie. It took 2-3 days to really like it and now I hate when I don’t have it. Drinking the acv for me lessens the production of mucous alot. When everyone was suffering this past spring, it didn’t bother me a bit. Got my teenage daughter to drink it a bit. She drank more for a sore throat when I mixed 1-2 tsp of acv in a cup of hot, fruit herbal tea and added honey and a bit of lemon to it. She NEVER drinks tea. And she admitted it helped.

    • You can’t go wrong with anything that tastes like apple pie! I will have to try this. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

    • I mix:
      2 tbsp acv
      1tbsp honey
      100ml pineapple juice
      100ml lowfat fresh milk

      I don’t know exectly how it works together,
      But for me, it helps me to have a better digestion. I am always running in the toilet early in the morning and I feel my tummy so light and bloated free. I drink it every night before going to bed.

      If anyone here knows the exact benefits of my mixture please share it with me… thanks a lot…

      • Pineapple has something called bromelain which aids in having better digestion and that’s why if works for you. And of course the ACV has the benefit of breaking down fats.

  20. Make sure the cranberry juice is not cranberry COCKTAIL, that’s the one full of refined sugar.

    Use 100% cranberry juice or mix.

  21. My kids absolutely love the green smoothies I make for breakfast, so I just add the ACV to the blender when I make them! I put some raw local honey it them also, you can’t even taste the vinegar.

    • I contribute the use of Bragg’s ACV to my very healthy body, I am in my 82nd year, take no regularly prescribed meds…I told my Dr about ACV for acid reflux,,,he just kinda looked at me and nodded his head!!!!Ask my 14 grandchildren and 7 great grands What To Take For coughs and sore throats,,,Vinegar and Honey is the answer. Also equal amount of ACV and distilled boiled with crushed garlic, honey and cayenne pepper is what you take at the start of a cold or flu.

    • Do you have receipt for smoothie with avg your kids love you can text me 303 349 5526
      I would really appreciate it

  24. Wao ! Loved the post … Exactly what I was looking for … ” how to include ACV in my daily diet ?”. Thank you ! After reading all I guess 1 spoon AVC with a spoon raw honey and any thing else ( cranberry juice / grapes juice / lemon etc ) for a flavor change makes a solid drink … Definitely going to try it .. !

  26. Can’t stand the taste off ACV, so I bought the biggest empty capsules I could find and a syringe. This is the only way I can handle this stuff- in a capsule.

  29. I use a glass salad dressing jar and mix the following ingredients.

    8-10 oz alkaline water
    2-TBSP ACV
    1-TBS Chia Seeds
    1-TBS MCT Oil (pure coconut oil)
    4-6 Drops of Liquid Stevia

    I chill in the refrigerator overnight, and have one each day in-between meals. The chia seeds absorbe nicely and provide Omega3, the MCT oil gives my brain “FOCUS” and curbs my appetite, and the drops of Stevia cut the harshness of the ACV, and give it a nice tart taste. Love This!!!

    , to chill overnight and shake and enjoy the next day, in between meals.

  30. Here’s a way to enjoy your ACV with no sugar or sweetener at all – just add seltzer. The fuzzy water does something to the taste of the vinegar that makes it very refreshing.

    I make my own carbonated water with a Soda Stream machine so I know exactly what I’ve added (only pure water).

    So – One glass, spoon in your daily allotment of ACV and top with a cup or two of fizzy water. Delicious!
    (Seriously, try it.)

  37. My husband has chronic migraines and I have had some internal inflammation issues. I started reading about the benefits ACV and began experimenting with different concoctions. 🙂 I add 1 tsp organic cinnamon, 1 tbsp raw local honey, 1 tbsp Braggs ACV, in a glass of warm water, and then add a splash of lemon juice. Stir it up and drink it down! My husband notices immediate headache relief and my tummy problems are over now!! We take this 2-3 times daily. 🙂

  39. These are great. I use ginger and turmeric with ACV for my morning pick me up. I never thought about putting in tomato juice, but it makes total sense. It’s like when I add BBQ sauce to a bloody Mary!

    • Thanks for the comment, but do you really mean “lover” problems? (Maybe like erectile disfunction or libido?) Or do you mean “liver” problems??

  42. I mix acv like a tbsp with v8 a cup or so with chai seeds helps with hunger so far I’ve just started so waiting to see if it helps with weightloss!!!

  46. Please warn everyone about grapefruit!! There is a huge list of medications that should NEVER be taken within at least 24 hrs of having grapefruit. Grapefruit contains a substance that allows some medicines into the bloodstream at a much faster and stronger rate than normal which may cause damage or even death. This is a great article, I just wanted to add that because there is no warning about this anywhere. Grapefruit should come with a health warning, lol 🙂

  51. I make a drink that my kids refer to as Mommy Juice. It’s our go to drink in the winter to help prevent and get over cold and flu symptoms.

    1 Tbsp ACV
    1 Tbsp Fresh lemon juice
    1 tbsp honey
    1/4 tsp cinnamon
    1/8 tsp ginger (optional if you like a little burn to clear your throat)
    8-12 oz hot water

    It tastes sort of like a wassail. Sometimes I’ll make a crockpot at a time and use cinnamon sticks as they incorperate better than powdered cinnamon.

  52. I used to take ACV 3 times a day,had really no additional exercise, and the weight really started coming off. I, like many others, couldn’t get on board with the taste. It was worse in the mornings, since you had to take on an empty stomach.
    Well, since it worked so well, and iremember feeling loads better when iwas drinking it, I guess I’m ready to give it another try, and since I need to loose several pounds.
    By looking through different drink recipes on the internet, and fooling with ingredients that I have on hand, I have created something that tastes great, and I can’t taste the ACV at all!
    The best acv drink, to me:
    1/3 cup frozen, but slacked blueberries
    3 T imitation honey
    1/2 t cinnamon
    1/2 t cycaine pepper
    Muddle the above together, then add:
    The juice of 1/2 to 1 lemon
    2 T ACV
    Stir
    Add ice
    Fill to top with artificially sweetened and flavored carbonated water ( I used Wild Cherry)
    Drink with fat straw, due to blueberries

    I will have no trouble drinking this, and looking forward to experimenting with other waters and fruits.

  53. I use ACV everyday. Just have to not do too much. I have some constipation. Any suggestions to combat this side effect?

    • I’ve never heard of ACV causing constipation. But when I’m dealing with constipation it can generally be linked to a few causes. 1- I’m dehydrated. Drinking more water often helps. 2- I need more magnesium. Most people struggle to have adiquate magnesium levels. I like using Natural Calm as an oral supplement or taking epsom salt baths to combat deficiency. 3- My gut isn’t getting enough good bacteria. Eating fermented saurkraut, or other fermented veggies, or drinking kefir can help supply you with a good source of probiotics.
