This Easy Gut-Friendly Lemonade is a 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 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 live then try adding a pinch of cayenne pepper to give this healthy lemonade a kick.
Use unpasteurized 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 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, especially in the summer 🙂
