Today, I’m sharing a Switzel drink with you!  This recipe has been around for years and years and is perfect for the fall months. It is tasty, good for you, and great for your family’s health.  

With four simple ingredients, that you most likely have on hand, you can get tremendous health benefits like improved digestion, balancing blood sugar, and curbing cravings.

acv drink; switzel; health detoxThe main ingredient is apple cider vinegar (ACV)  For this drink, you may use whatever kind you want, but as always, unpasteurized and organic is ideal.

Apple cider vinegar helps foster the good bugs in your body. While it is acidic, it creates an alkaline environment in the body once digested, and fosters the growth of good bugs in the body. The fermentation process starts with sugar from apples and mixing it with yeast. The yeast eats the sugar up. The yeast produces the good bacteria. ACV helps with digestion, heartburn and balances your pH.

ACV is also a great source of magnesium. Magnesium is a mineral we’re most deficient in and it reaches up to 300 hundred different pathways in the body.

This gentle detox is the perfect combination to balance blood sugar, get your lymphatic system going, and curb your cravings. It’s a great drink to have before meals for this reason!

You will need:

1 cup of hot water

1 TB ACV

¼ teaspoon of cinnamon

1 ½ teaspoons of raw honey

**you can also replace the same amounts of cinnamon with ginger and honey with maple syrup

Mix in a shaker cup and pour into a mug. This is a great recipe to make, leave in the fridge, and warm up on the stove when you need a boost. Enjoy!
