Getting Started – Apple Cider Vinegar Recipes

If you’re wanting to start introducing Apple Cider Vinegar into your diet, but don’t know where to begin, here are a few simple recipes. Now you have no excuses!

Straight up – Adding 2 tbsp to a cup of water and drinking this concoction 2-3 times daily is one classic way of getting a generous daily dose of ACV. It may take some time to get used to the taste. You can also try adding a tsp of honey to add some sweetness.

Juicing with ACV – Apple Cider Vinegar goes best with juicing recipes that contain a healthy portion of orange or grapefruit juice – It’s sweetness and acidity takes some of the sour edge off. Try this juicing recipe:

  • Juice 1 orange or grapefruit, along with 1 carrot, ½ of a small beet, 1 tsp fresh ginge. Add 2 tbsp ACV, stir. Enjoy!

Apple Cider Vinaigrette- So much healthier than many store-bought dressings, this is a very easy way to add more ACV to your diet.

  • ¼ Cup Organic  Apple Cider Vinegar
  • ¼ cup white wine vinegar
  • 1 TBSP mustard (Dijon works best)
  • 2 TBSP honey (local if possible)
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Dash of salt & pepper

Combine all ingredients and whisk until well blended. Can also blend in blender.

Skin Toner Recipe – Naturally restore your pH balance and smooth out your complexion.

  • 1 cup water
  • ½ cup ACV

Combine water and ACV. After your washing your face, apple ACV solution to entire face (being careful to avoid your eyes) using a cotton ball. Store in glass jar with lid.

Hair Boosting Rinse – Restore some shine to your hair, and get rid of chemical buildup from other products.

  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup ACV
  • A couple drops of the essential oil of your choice (optional, but helps with the scent).
Love essential oils? I’m a self-proclaimed oil-junkie! Read up on the brand of essential oils I absolutely love and currently use for everything from warding off strep, to eliminating my daughter’s asthma.

Combine ingredients. Shampoo & rinse hair. Pour concoction (or even better, spray) in to hair. Massage into your roots. Let it sit in your hair for 3 or so minutes, then rinse well with water. No need for conditioner.

    Love these ideas! I can’t bring myself to drink it even mixed with something else, but it’s delicious in dressings and I love using it to rinse out my hair after washing with a baking soda paste. Makes it super pretty! And the smell DOES go away after it dries. 🙂

    I mix 2 tablespoons ACV, 2 tablespoons honey and 1 teaspoon cinnamon together. Let sit for a bit and shake well. I take a few teaspoons each day. It really doesn’t taste bad at all.
