Hot Spiced Apple Cider Vinegar Tea Ingredients

This recipe is so very simple. Just a few ingredients and a few minutes are all you need. 

  • Organic Apple Cider Vinegar (such as Bragg’s, but you can also find generic at Trader Joe’s, etc.) 
  • Boiling water
  • Unsweetened apple juice or spiced apple cider. If you’ve got extra apples, you can even make your own Homemade Apple Cider. If you’re using apple juice, I recommend using unfiltered and adding a pinch of cinnamon.

Apple Cider Vinegar Detox Diet  

Apple cider vinegar is naturally fermented apple juice. It’s best to choose a bottle that specifies “organic apple cider vinegar with the mother.” The reason for choosing this raw, unpasteurized version is that it contains prebiotics and probiotics, which promote gut health, which are important for digestion and immune system function. 

According to Patricia Bragg, “The research world-wide supports Hippocrates (father of medicine) who treated his patients in 400 BC, and discovered ACV is a powerful cleansing & healing elixir, a naturally occurring antibiotic & antiseptic that fights germs & bacteria for a healthier, longer life!” Apple cider vinegar detox drink recipes are nothing new! ACV has many other uses, from topical skin potions to Salad Dressing

How to Make a Hot Apple Cider Vinegar Drink 

Though you can find apple cider vinegar drinks bottled in many grocery stores, at least here in Santa Barbara, hometown to Bragg Live Foods, it’s easy to make your own at home. 

Steaming water pours out of an electric kettle and into a glass clear glass mug to start making a hot detox drink.

Start with hot water. You can microwave a mug, or simmer on the stove. I use an electric tea kettle multiple times a day, and if you’re a tea-drinker, I highly recommend one! Anyway, get yourself a mug full of boiling water.
