ADDITIONAL RECIPE NOTES
Drinking in the morning will allow you to absorb the nutrients quickly and get your digestive system moving.
I find that the flavors of these ingredients are a little hard to swallow, which is why I like to take it all at once. Warm water will also make it easier to drink and will help melt the honey a little so it mixes in well. However, if you are a sipper and can handle the flavors better than me, fill your glass and enjoy!
You could also triple or increase the recipe to make a batch that lasts a few days. Prepping it ahead makes it readily available and helps you to be sure to drink it consistently. Make sure and store it in the refrigerator if you make a large batch. The ACV and fresh lemon need to be refrigerated.
If you’re intimidated by the thought of drinking apple cider vinegar with a dash of cayenne, don’t be scared! Try it for a week and see how you feel. You may be surprised at the improvement to your health, just by this one simple elixir since these ingredients have more health benefits than just digestive. You may find that you have clearer, brighter skin, a stronger immune system and even more energy!
If you really want to jump start your system on a detox, take this before every meal for a few weeks. Then cut back to just before breakfast.
For longer-term, daily routine, keep it up in the mornings. Personally, I find that very doable for my season of life.
There’s nothing better than just feeling well, and making an apple cider vinegar detox elixir is a great small step to take for better health!
