16 Awesome Uses for Apple Cider Vinegar (Detoxing, Weight-loss, and Anti-Aging Included!)

 

What & Where to Buy?

Apple cider vinegar is a vinegar made by simply fermenting apples in water. For best results when ingesting the vinegar or putting the vinegar on your skin, go for  unpasteurized apple cider vinegar, like this Braggs brand (my favorite & the top apple cider vinegar brand). When using the ACV for cleaning purposes, its ok to go the pasteurized root, though for best results still use the Braggs brand.

Is there anything more versatile than Apple cider vinegar? An ingredient everyone should have in their homes, ACV not only aids in digestion and heals skin, but works as a great house cleaner too!

DIY Starbuck’s Berry Hibiscus Refresher

I have the itiest, bitiest obsession with all Starbuck’s products. The only thing is that for every delicious concoction I have to shell out five bucks.  My newest obsession is the Berry HIbiscus Refresher. Delightful fruity and refreshing, but I sip it down in minutes with it costing $5 for a medium and 70 calories.

My solution is a DIY version that is low on calories and cost.
DIY Starbuck’s Berry Hibiscus Refresher
5-6 cups boiling water (depending on how strong you like)
4 drops liquid Stevia (optional)
Fresh or frozen blackberries and blueberries
Steep the tea bags in the boiling water; add sweetener. Let steep for at least one hour (I let mine go overnight, but definitely not necessary). Pour tea into a pitcher, add ice and berried. Refrigerate for an hour. Serve with more berries.
If you want to add in the missing caffeine, exchange one of the berry tea bags for a green tea bag.
