Apple Cider Vinegar Sports Drink Recipe

A few weeks ago I picked up one of Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar Drinks at my local health food store. I was surprised by how much I liked it, especially because I’ve always found the dilute apple cider vinegar recipe people use as a weight-loss aid to be rather foul-tasting.

Bragg’s version was pretty tasty – like a low-calorie version of apple cider – so I decided to try to recreate it. Here’s my homemade version:

  • 2 cups cold water
  • 1/4 cup apple juice
  • 1 tablespoon raw apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon stevia
  • sprinkle of ground cinnamon or ground ginger

Combine in a mason jar and shake well. Serve cold.

This apple cider vinegar drink has been my go-to natural sports drink for winter work-outs. It’s both refreshing and warming.

    • Apple cider vinegar is thought to be a good natural remedy for easing tired, sore muscles. Many people also think that it boosts metabolism. However, neither of these claims have been substantiated by scientific evidence.

  1. This sounds like a direct descendant of old-time haymakers’ switchel which was served to hot, thirsty harvesters and likely a frugal substitute for lemonade. I think the original was usually sweetened with molasses which also provides several minerals.
