Apple cider vinegar and honey weight loss drink is a quick detox drink that aids in weight loss if consumed regularly. It helps detoxify the body with regular consumption and a healthy diet. Check out the details below.
I am sharing this quick and easy yet another weight loss beverage that can not only aid in losing pounds but also has many other advantages.
About the recipe
I am making this drink using raw organic apple cider vinegar and suggest using it in place of inorganic ACV as organic apple cider has more potential to work effectively than inorganic vinegar.
Making it as a plain drink, this is a drink that can cleanse the colon and keeps the gut clean with regular usage.
We use simple, handy ingredients here, such as lemon and honey, to add to the apple cider vinegar and some cinnamon.
Skip cinnamon if you do not want to use it, but to make it even more effective, I will use this spice ingredient which has many benefits that I will mention below.
Check out the recipe details as you keep reading below.
Benefits of Honey with ACV
This combination is an effective way of losing weight, helps with digestion issues, and is slowly gaining popularity due to its effectiveness.
It not helps cut down the fat but also helps in reducing cardiovascular issues and heart stroke problems.
The main health benefit of using apple cider vinegar in any drink or on salads by making a vinaigrette or in any form is it helps reduce blood sugar levels to a large extent.
People with diabetes can dilute a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and consume it before bed.
Studies have shown an effective decrease in blood sugar levels in people who experimented with ACV.
It is also helpful in curing many other ailments such as high cholesterol issues, food infections or poisoning and can solve obesity problems with regular use.
It can curb appetite and avoid consuming unhealthy substances that cause weight gain.
Difference between organic ACV and inorganic ACV
Organic ACV is a pure form and raw form of ACV that does not use any fertilizers and pesticides and is made purely by crushing apples using yeast and converting it into alcohol.
The alcohol is then converted to acetic acid with the help of bacteria. This form of apple cider is called raw, organic and with the mother. The organic form is not processed at all.
Inorganic apple cider is wholly processed and has no good benefits as it kills the bacteria in its making process.
Today, I am sharing another drink by enhancing it with honey and helping it drink quickly.
Benefits of honey
Honey, due to its vast medicinal properties, has had heavy usage in cooking
in every kitchen for ages. It is advantageous when used as remedies and has the benefits of its usage from head to toe.
Honey is healthy for the skin, in food, in drinks, in treating hair issues,
and for beauty purposes.
It has many internal health benefits, treats digestion, is high in antioxidants, and has many powerful cures if combined with various foods and drinks.
Honey is a natural sweetener, and avoiding sugar and using honey for many
recipes and consumption purposes can control sugar levels.
Apple cider is acidic; combining it with honey makes it a sweet and strong detox drink.
Benefits of cinnamon
There are many benefits to cinnamon, too, with honey and ACV. Combining all of these makes it a power-packed detox drink at any time of the day.
Cinnamon can cure issues related to weight gain to a certain extent. There are primary studies that are still going on which are not proven.
It is undoubtedly an ingredient that can help fight unhealthy and bad fats and cholesterol levels in the human body.
This wonder spice can help treat different kinds of bacterial infections as well as good to control sugar levels.
Cinnamon has properties that can help prevent cancer-causing issues and is rich in antioxidant properties.
Benefits of lemon
Lemon is so powerful and beneficial in ways that one cannot imagine. For instance, I would like to state some of its pros that I am aware of and have researched so far.
This powerful ingredient has high healing properties that can fight various infections; common ones are to treat colds, flu etc.
Lemon is good for skin care and has high properties in treating nausea, digestion etc.
This citrus fruit keeps the body hydrated with regular consumption of fluids by mixing lemon extract in drinks.
It helps in cleansing the gut, keeps the liver clean from toxins, and helps detoxify and get rid of toxins from the body.
Combining these ingredients with ACV makes the drink highly effective and a must-try.
Apple cider vinegar: I am using raw, organic ingredients with the mother ACV that is commonly available in stores and is very affordable.
Lemon: It is readily handy in every kitchen with many medicinal properties and is a must for this recipe to enhance the benefits.
Cinnamon: Cinnamon here is used in the form of powder. If the powder is unavailable, crush some cinnamon and add it to the drink.
Water: Water is necessary as ACV is highly acidic and can spoil the tooth enamel if taken in a concentrated form, and using water helps dilute the drink.
It is better to use it by diluting it with a glass of water and not necessarily hot water.
Take a glass or a jar, and add a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to concentrate on it.
Add a tablespoon of lemon extract concentrate to the glass.
Pour in a glass of water.
Add a teaspoon of honey to the drink.
Add cinnamon in powdered form as per requirement. Be careful in adding as it can give a pungent smell. If you do not like the taste of cinnamon, skip adding it, but it is a healthy option.
Stir all the ingredients well.
Serve apple cider vinegar and honey immediately and consume any time to benefit in the long run.
When to drink?
Drinking it on an empty stomach is preferable as it can help digestion throughout the day and helps clean and detoxify the body.
However, if one has time to drink it during the day, consume it any time or before meals and follow it weekly twice or thrice.
It can be hard to consume daily as it is highly acidic; reducing or cutting down its consumption as per choice is a better option.
Also, consider eating a healthy diet and maintaining a healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise and enjoy the results the drink gives.
Can I use hot water to make this drink?
I prefer cold water and do not use warm water because honey can be dangerous and turn toxic when mixed with hot or warm water.
Try to avoid using honey with warm water. If drinking plain ACV in water without honey, go ahead with warm water.
I suggest making it fresh, and if willing to store it, make the drink, keep it for not more than two days, and always give storing a second preference.
Drinking it fresh is more beneficial than storing and drinking it. It is almost an acid and can change the taste and nature and cause harm if using a drink that is reserved for a longer time.
apple cider vinegar and honey with cinnamon (weight loss drink )
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar (raw and organic)
- 1 tbsp lemon extract
- 1 glass water
- 1 teaspoon honey
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
- Take a glass or a jar, add a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar concentrate in it.
- Add in a tablespoon of lemon extract concentrate to the glass.
- Pour in a glass of water.
- Add a teaspoon of honey to the drink.
- Add cinnamon in powdered form as per requirement. Be careful in adding as it can give a strong smell. If required and not finding tastier, it can be skipped.
- Stir all the ingredients well.
I am using cold water and suggest using normal cold water, but there is no harm in adding ACV to warm water.
If adding all the mentioned ingredients is complex and not handy when needed, use apple cider and honey as the main ingredients and drink them whenever possible or any time of the day.
Other enhancements to the drink include skipping the cinnamon and adding grated ginger, which also is helpful to burn body fat.
Another modification is adding turmeric to the drink and combining it with ACV, making a beautiful detox drink.
It can help prevent bloating, digestion, weight loss, and other health issues such as increased sugar levels. It keeps the liver and stomach healthy if taken on an empty stomach or 20 to 30 minutes before every meal.
It is an acidic drink and can cause tooth erosion and prefer using a straw without touching the teeth to drink. Also, studies show that they cause nausea, heartburn and throat burns, and decreased potassium levels with a high dose of ACV. Limit its intake and never use it in concentrated form.
