This is my little concoction to keep me and my kids healthy this fall and winter. My husband won’t touch it (you’ll see why when you read the ingredients), but we love it and so do both of my nieces. OK, it’s not really my concoction. It’s straight from the Bragg Organic Raw-Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar bottle in my kitchen. I noticed it one day when for some reason I decided to read the label. It’s officially called the Bragg Vinegar Health Drink. I dubbed it Health Juice because pretty much anything that’s called juice is OK with my kids. I mean, they chug this stuff! The ingredients are simple and always plentiful in our house.
The label says: 1-2 tsps Bragg Organic Vinegar in 8oz of purified water and 1-2 tsps Organic Honey, 100% Maple Syrup, Blackstrap Molasses or 4 drop herb Stevia.
I use local honey from Alstede Farms in Chester, NJ to sweeten the drink and, like I said, we love it. I know it sounds weird and quite possibly icky if you don’t normally use vinegar for anything other than salad dressing, but it’s super good for you. The combination of the vinegar and the honey helps chase those germs away and strengthens your immune system.
I have been making individual servings for us every time we needed a dose, but today I saw this pretty bottle at the store and thought, ” Dude! I should totally make a big bottle of it and keep it in the fridge!”. Yes, my inner voice is apparently an 80s surfer. So I bought it and mad a batch. I quadrupled the recipe and now we’ll have a lovely bottle of Health Juice waiting for us when we need a pick me up. Sometimes I’m knocked over by my own brilliance. *smirk*
