I've long heard about the benefits of apple cider vinegar, turmeric and lemon water.

Lemon water makes it into my routine on a more frequent basis, but I seem to fight myself with the other two ingredients.

Drinking apple cider vinegar is not all that fun but has many health benefits. Lower blood sugar levels, helps with weight loss, kills bacteria and may even kill cancer cells.

Turmeric also has anti-inflammatory benefits and is a strong anti-oxidant.

Lemon water aids in digestion, boosts energy and strengthens your immune system.

So why not try them all together?

It seemed like a perfect one to try first for experimenting with morning elixirs, as I like to call them. Or a Monday morning reset, in today's case.

Have you ever heard of, or tried the “master cleanse?” It's basically spicy lemonade: lemon juice, maple syrup, and cayenne pepper. I bought one from a juice cleanse place once and wasted my $4 because I couldn't force it down. Way too spicy and not enough sweetener.

After making this drink I realized it's basically a twist on the master cleanse by adding apple cider vinegar and turmeric. It's still not the most delicious drink ever (one gal's opinion) but you can at least tweak it as needed to make it more appealing to your own taste buds.

The proportions that work for me are:

  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup (or honey)
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar (make sure to get the kind with “mother”)
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • pinch of cayenne pepper

Start with just a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar if you're afraid of the taste, and work your way up. I've heard the cayenne pepper helps the body absorb the turmeric.

With all the health benefits these ingredients are suppose to have, it's no wonder this drink kind of gives me a little buzz of energy! Either that or I'm so happy to be done with it? It's definitely something I CAN drink every morning but it takes some getting used to.

It helps (me) to add a fun straw to drink it with. Or just power through.

Notes

I just started using this drink. I'm wondering if it's ok to make it by the gallon and refrigerate it, so I dont have to make it. Every day

I thought I had a Sprained ankle but I think it was Gout. So painful I couldn't walk for week. Got on line and found all of these elements and put them together>> 1/2cup water> Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar>Tablespoon Lemon Juice>1/4 Teaspoon Turmeric>1/4 Teaspoon Black Pepper>1/4 Teaspoon No Salt (Potassium Chloride) I drank 3 of these a day and after three days I was able to ditch the crutches.I went straight to the store and got some Tart Cherry Extract Capsules & Turmeric Capsules. Went to baking section and got Dehydrated Cherries and Maraschino Cherries. I still drink one of these every day. I am going to get a bottle of Ginger Capsules also. I love pickle juice so this drink is a Treat!!

Why are these recipe sites looking the same with the same ads same pics same weirdly written articles... is there a corporation mass producing these recipe sites now?

Hi John - these are my own pictures and recipe! Ads may be similar for you on multiple sites since they are targeted to the viewer, but if you've seen my recipe pictures somewhere else they do not have permission to use them - I only use my own photography unless otherwise credited.

I’ve been using a similar recipe: 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar, lemon zest, 2 tablespoons of grated ginger, 1 tablespoon of turmeric, about 1/2 cup of water and it’s my pick me up before my morning swim.

My morning mixture consists of 1 tablespoon organic apple cider, 1 tablespoon honey, 1 teaspoon turmeric, 2 healthy slices of raw ginger in 12 ounces of warm water. I used to be a coffee fiend, and now that my morning starts with this, I no longer crave coffee. I'm not saying I've given it up totally, but it's more like once a week (maybe) now instead of twice a day. (p.s. Raw ginger and apple cider help with weight loss.)
