Having trouble swallowing ACV? The best way to do it is to use Apple Cider Juice. Promise--You will not taste the vinegar. Go for it!!

After being on this site a few times, I decided to try out Apple Cider Vinegar. I took my concoction regularly for about a month, but I gave it up when I spent the summer abroad. I felt that it did help jump start my weight-loss, and I most definitely felt an increase in energy. However, I hate the taste of the stuff and upon returning home, found it incredibly difficult to force myself to drink it. My distaste for it also makes it so that my stomach aches for almost an hour after forcing myself to swallow.

So - here's my solution for those of you that can't bear the taste: bloody mary mix. If you like bloody mary mix, you'll never taste the difference. I drink about 1/2 ounce of bloody mary mix (I use an all-natural one I found at my local grocery store) with my 2 tablespoons of acv three times a day. I will warn people that bloody mary mix has quite a bit of sodium, so keep that in mind, if you are worried about your sodium intake.

Good luck!

For those of you who have a problem with the taste of ACV, even when diluted with water, you might try mixing ACV into a glass of lemonade.

For anyone who doesn't like the taste of apple cider vinegar, try it with orange juice that way you cant taste it as much. Thats how my husband and I drink it. One tbl spoon in a glass of orange juice. Any juice works pretty good.

I just though I would let your readers know that I just started the ACV remedy daily regiment to prevent migraines as I am weaning off my daily meds (that were causing hearing loss after 5 years on them!!). So far so good! I will say that w/o the honey, I couldn't pallette the taste, so I mixed it with La Croix (but any brand UNSWEETENED) Lime water. It is carbonated and tastes slightly sweet even though it has no artificial sweetners (a must for any migraine folks). For some reason it really cuts the "yuck" factor considerably!

Just a tip! Saved me and now I am working the cure!

I just could not take even the littlest amount of ACV...I tried so many ways to cover the wretching I would suffer every day when I would attempt to swallow it. Today, I found the answer....Clamato Juice! for the first time I could pour almost 2 tablespoons in a glass and fill it up with the juice and down it went, no problem!

I thought I'd pass on a smoothie recipe I use every morning to disquise the taste of vinegar and molasses and sneak in some other stuff I don't like the taste of. The end result is a easy, delicious breakfast.

Place in a blender:
2 Tblsp. ACV
2 Tblsp. Black Strap Molasses
2tsp vanilla
1 cup of any juice you have on hand (I like cranberry or apple)
2 frozen bananas
5/6 frozen strawberries
Soy milk to fill the blender.
Now here's where you can add if you like:
1/2 cup oatmeal (try it, you'll be suprised you can't tell it's in there)
-wheat germ
-calcium powder
or just about anything you like.
*if you live where Noni grows, this will even disquise that taste!

Blend on high until mixed.

This smoothie gives me a ton of energy, a smooth clear complexion and notable weight loss.

The first week I started drinking this, I was very tired with flu like symptoms but I kept it up as I believed my body was purging and healing. By the 2nd week, I felt like a new person.

Thank you Earth Elinic for being here! I would have never have discovered these amazing cures and remedies!

Ive tried everything to mask the taste of ACV, but nothing worked, but I was determined to find somethig, becuse I know there's so many benefits to drinkin it, So what I do is take 2 "shots" I just pour it into the lid and slam it with LOTS of water mixed with a tiny spoonful of baking soda to reduce the acidity, its quick and easy and wll be doing that from now on!!

I have just started ACV for weight loss support and blackstrap molasses in hopes of reversing advancing gray hair.

This recipe made both products more palatable for me:
2tbsp ACV
2tbsp BSM

Mix in a tall glass until the BSM is dissolved. Add a full can of club soda or mineral water - be careful, it really fizzes. Stir lightly, add ice if desired, and enjoy. Sorta sweet, sorta tangy, nicely fizzy, dark brown. It's a taste that grows on you, sort of like Coke does.

I just tried AVC for the first time and it actually is quite the miracle... I feel lots of energy just from the first drink! And I actually think it tastes pretty good... 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar 1/2 tspn of cayenne pepper 1/2 lemon juice 2 tspns of maple syrup I was not actually expecting to find this today or this website... while I couldn't go to school today from horrible heartburn and this remedy actually helps if you ever get heartburn!

3 TB Apple Cider Vinegar
3 TB lime juice, fresh squeezed if possible
2 TB honey sprinkle of cinnamon

Boil 8 oz of water, and add the ingredients. Stir until honey is dissolved.
It tastes like a christmas wassail recipe that my family makes, but much healthier. Even my cousins who hate the vinegar loved it when they added a little more honey to make a sweet drink.

The best way that I've found to drink ACV is like this.. boil water like you're making tea, to your cup add 2 Tablespoons ACV 1 Tablespoon Lemon juice and add honey to taste. It works great for a sore throat and helped treat my strep throat as a kid. I just love the stuff! I've begun drinking it again recently and haven't felt this good in ages! I'm also overweight and have PCOS, so I'm excited to see if there are any benefits there as well. I hope you enjoy this mix, it seems to make it a bit more appetizing. Enjoy!

For those that can not stand taste of water with Apple Cider Vinegar,' try it witn B8 Juice or Garden Patch from Trader Joes. VERY TASTY. I love the taste of ACV and usually put in at least 2 Tablespoons in one glaee of juice. Judy Ann Blake

I recently found this and am trying it and I love it! I plan to start a second batch soon because the first batch will be gone very quickly! It's called Fire Cider. It is effective, easy to make and tasty, though not for the weak of heart. Make a batch before the cold season starts.

1 Quart AC vinegar
1/4 cup grated fresh horseradish
1 onion, chopped
1 head garlic, peeled & chopped
2 tablespoons powdered turmeric
1 cup honey
cayenne pepper, to taste

1. In a glass or stainless steel sauce pan heat vinegar on the stove to where it is warm, but not boiling.
2. Fill a clean glass jar with horseradish, onion, garlic, turmeric, and a pinch or two of Cayenne pepper.
3. Pour in the warmed vinegar and cap with an acid-proof lid.
4. Store in a warm place 3 to 4 weeks; shaking a few times a week.
5. Strain mixture and add enough honey to suit your taste.
6. Rebottle fire cider and refrigerate.
7. At the first sign of a cold take 1 to 2 tablespoons every 2 to 3 hours until your symptoms subside.

I use a mason jar and put wax paper on top before putting the lid on.

With ACV, taking 6 tablespoons a day, 3 in the morning, 3 in the evening, it cleared my skin up completely within less than a few days, but the smell of it makes me so woozy, and it burns my throat and stomach. I take it anyway, but I just add a little bit of orange juice and take it like a shot of alchohol, and quickly drink more orange juice. I just wanted to know it thats an acceptable way to take my ACV.
