Apple Cider Vinegar Lemonade Recipe

Apple Cider Vinegar Lemonade Recipe using unpasturised vinegar that contains the mother. A healthy and tasty drink that's beneficial for gut bacteria

Quick lemonade recipe that uses apple cider vinegar, fresh lemon and maple syrup to make a refreshing drink with medicinal benefits.

Apple Cider Vinegar Lemonade is like a cross between the lemon/maple/cayenne master-cleanse and kombucha. If you like either of these then be sure to try this recipe.

Apple Cider Vinegar Fresh Lemonade in a glass with fresh lemon, ice and raw apple cider vinegar. A paper straw is used here to be plastic free, but usually I would use a reusuable metal straw to save using even compostable paper

Apple cider vinegar is fermented using natural sugar from the apples so this is suitable for refined sugar-free diets. Also suitable for raw diets as maple syrup is generally accepted on the raw food diet.

This lemonade is low in calories with about 12 calories per 100ml. If it’s not summer and warm where you are then try adding a pinch of cayenne pepper to give this healthy lemonade a kick.

Use unpasteurised and unfiltered apple cider vinegar that contains “the mother” for maximum nutritional benefit.

If a vinegar has the mother it will have some clumps of sediment when shaken. Sediment strands in apple cider vinegar are the mother and can be fed with sugar and tea to make kombucha.

Apple Cider Lemonade is raw Vegan and if you use a sugar free healthy sweetener like xyiltol or stevia is also sugar free. I use maple syrup in this healthy drink and it does contain sugar but also nutrients

Apple Cider Vinegar Lemonade tastes similar to kombucha but as the apple cider vinegar is already fermented it’s instant to make. There’s some debate if kombucha is actually healthy as it’s made with refined sugar.

Commercial kombucha brands often have a high sugar content as the fermentation is short to make a sweet and palatable drink. With this lemonade you can reduce the maple syrup/sweetener to make it low sugar.

This apple vinegar lemonade recipe is a lot cheaper than buying shop bought kombucha and this version does not contain refined sugar.

Before the video for this recipe was filmed I had a quick search online and was overjoyed that no one else had done this recipe. So often you think of a “new” recipe or idea but it turns out it’s already pretty popular.

Now as I’m editing everything and putting the finishing touches I realise that this isn’t a new recipe unless you spell lemonade like lemonaid! Nevermind it’s still the drink I’ve been enjoying this summer so hope someone finds it useful.

Apple Cider Vinegar Maple syrup Lemonade is made using locally made cider vinegar from unsprayed apple trees. Apple cider vinegar has so many healthy benefits and this lemonade is a great way to enjoy it

Apple cider vinegar has many reported health benefits when taken both internally and externally. It’s usually recommended to drink Apple cider vinegar in warm water but when you don’t fancy a hot drink this is a great alternative.
