There are so many foods that are so good for us but taste so bad!
Apple cider vinegar is one of those drinks that has incredible benefits if consumed on a daily basis, but man, it’s hard to drink, am I right?
My dilemma is that when the ACV is diluted with a large amount of liquid, it is easier to handle, but who wants to drink an entire glass of bland vinegar?
I made this apple cider vinegar shot recipe that tastes like apple pie to make it bearable.
There are hints of cinnamon, vanilla, and apple juice mixed in with the apple cider vinegar in shot form, so you can finish it all in one shot.
WHY YOU NEED THIS SHOT IN YOUR LIFE?
- Because water is never counted as an ingredient, you only need three.
- There’s no need to waste time trying to get honey to dissolve completely.
- There are no added sugars other than those found naturally in apple juice.
- It is a quick way to get apple cider vinegar into your system without having to drink anything.
- Without the added sugar found in most ACV shots, such as honey, this shot is Whole30 compliant if you use the right apple juice.
WHAT ARE APPLE CIDER VINEGAR SHOTS?
Apple Cider Vinegar Shots are a quick 1-2 ounce shot of flavored liquid plus a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar.
Not only will the vinegar be diluted by other liquids and flavors, but it will not come into contact with your teeth, which can be damaged by vinegar.
INGREDIENT NOTES AND SUBSTITUTIONS
This is the simplest recipe in the world. What you’ll need is as follows:
- Apple Cider Vinegar with Mother- Look for organic apple cider vinegar that includes the mother. This vinegar will be unfiltered. Organic is preferred because research indicates that it has a higher acetic acide profile. The benefits of ACV are derived from acetic acid.
- Apple Juice– Look for apple juice with no added sugar and that is not from concentrate. RW Knudsen is a favorite of mine, and he’s fairly easy to find.
- Cinnamon– a dash of cinnamon is optional but enhances the flavor, similar to apple pie! Cinnamon also has metabolism-boosting properties and contains high levels of polyphenol antioxidants.
HOW TO MAKE AN APPLE CIDER VINEGAR DRINK?
- To make an apple cider vinegar drink, all you need is organic apple cider vinegar and water.
- I like to sweeten this with liquid stevia, but you could also use honey or another sweetener of your choice.
- I like to add fresh lemon juice to this apple cider vinegar drink to make it taste like lemonade.
- Lemons have their own set of health benefits, including a mood boost.

WHEN SHOULD I DRINK THIS ACV SHOT?
This is a problem that can only be solved through trial and error.
Some people have difficulty tolerating ACV on an empty stomach, while others prefer to take it on an empty stomach because they believe it jumpstarts their digestion, which is proven to be true!
My preferred time to take ACV shots is about 30 minutes after my first meal.
This way, my food has already begun to digest, so there isn’t anything in my stomach, but there isn’t a full day’s worth of food to compete with either.
That way, I don’t get a stomach ache while still benefiting from digestion for the rest of the day.
