07/19/2012: Maccadoo13 from Lytle, Texas, United States: "I have to hurdle over the smell more than the taste, but their is some ways that are not so bad. I like it in a can of spinach. First I drain the liquid then I pour in the ACV till it fills the can...."

12/16/2010: Paula from Albany, Ny: "I found a really delicious way to drink ACV. I had struggled with drinking ACV with baking soda and water and the taste kept me from being consistent drinking it. Then, based on someone's comment, I decided to make a juicy version. I take an empty 16 oz. Water bottle and mark it in quarters with a marker so I know how much a quarter dose is. To find out where to mark it, add 3 oz of water and mark the line. Then repeat this until you have 4 markings. Then I empty the now marked bottle and start making my mixture. I add 4 TBSP of ACV, then add roughly 1 TBSP of baking soda and fill up the bottle with filtered water and shake it gently. Then for each dose (I drink it am and pm), I pour 1/4 of the bottle into a juice glass and add a natural blueberry acai or blueberry pomegranite juice to the glass (I like Northland brand). I add a fair amount and add an ice cube or two. I keep it in the fridge until it's time to make a new batch. It's delicious and you only barely taste the vinager. Plus I'm getting the benefit of blueberry and other juices. Give it a try."
11/09/2010: Danny T. Vick from Commerce, Texas: "To Whom it may concern, I could not stand the taste of the Vinegar and water mix when I drank it or the smell of it when it came out as sweet so I come up with this mixture on my own. I take a half gal. Jug of 100% grape juice and pour out 1/3 cup of it down the drain or drink it. I then pour in 1/3 cup of Heinz Apple Cider and mix it up and chill in refrigerator. I drink one cup of that mixture everday with 2 tablespoons of Kretschmer's wheat germ added. The easiest way to do this is to take an empty bottle of Kretschmer's and put a piece of tape on it at the one cup level. The day before pour in the jar one cup of that mixture and add 2 tablespoons Wheat Germ. I swirl it around in the jar and drink it down. My Sinuses have cleared up as well as my Arthitis."Replies
12/01/2010: Elle from Charleston, Sc, Usa replies: "I add 1 tablespoon ACV, splash of Texas Pete hot sauce, dash of herbal salts (or sea salt)in a six ounce juice glass and add tomato juice and stir. Takes the place of an evening Bloody Mary. Celery stalk optional."
[YEA] 11/03/2010: Chad from Malta, Montana, U.S.A.: "Tough elixer:
2 caps bee pollen
Dash of hot sauce
Pinch of aunt jemima
Organic nighty night tea... Organic 7 spice chai tea
Organic chamomile tea
1 tsp honey
1-2 tbsp cider vinegar (depending on how badly you wrestle)
Pinch of cinnamon
2 flakes crushed red pepper
Cup of water
*drink while burning an incense and holding rabbits foot (optional)"
10/08/2010: Susie from Belcourt, Nd: "For those who are using the Apple Cider Vinegar in water and don't like the taste, it works and tastes great when you mix it with Apple juice, a dash of cinnamon, and a little honey. I heat it in the microwave and drink in the morning instead of my coffee. It keeps my congestion at a minimum, and I have chronic allergies to everything, so this is a true God send for me."Replies
[WARNING!] 07/05/2011: Ann from Laval, Quebec, Canada replies: "Nice idea but you zap all the enzymes out of your ACV when you use the microwave. In fact it does this to ALL your food. Read it up on the net."
[YEA] 09/07/2010: Candy from St. George, Kansas, Usa : "I have been drinking 1 tbls of ACV in 12oz of unsweetened Grapefruit juice and 1 tbls of Organic Honey 3x a day for 1wk. I have lost 10lbs so far and have more energy then I've had for a long time. The grapefruit juice dilutes the vinegar enough that all you taste is the juice. I almost want to drink it all day but I don't want to over do it. Can you over do ACV in a day?"
[YEA] 08/27/2010: Michael from Hudson, Fl: "For those asking what you can add to the ACV to make it sweeter, just add the ACV to a glass of apple juice and you can barely taste it. I just started with 1 t. In a small glass of apple juice and it just tastes like apple cider. I'll be increasing that to 2 t. Soon. I'll be experimenting with the ACV, water, and apple juice mixtures in a big bottle that I can sip throughout the day. I'll post the results soon."Replies
01/01/2011: Greensativa from Bullhead City, Arizona replies: "Continuous contact of the cider vinegar on the teeth is not good for the enamel and can soften it. Best to consume at varied times of the day."
[YEA] 08/22/2010: Kristin1023 from Orange, Ca: "I drink my ACV with apple juice. It takes great, much like sparkling cider!"
[YEA] 07/09/2010: Patrice from Silver Spring, Md : "Regarding sweetening of the acv drink- I use d-ribose to sweeten my acv drink because its a vital nutrient that the body needs but is also naturally sweet! :) patrice"
05/19/2010: Sarah from Lafayette, La: "I've noticed the several postings regarding ACV recipes - however can you take the ACV straight 1 or 2x a day?"
EC: A few others have asked the same question.. here's the thread: http://earthclinic.com/Remedies/acvinegar2.html#ACVCHASERS
01/01/2011: Greensativa from Bullhead City, Arizona replies: "Because of the acidity it would not be advised to take it straight without any sort of other liquid to dilute it. It can burn the mouth and throat tissue."
06/15/2011: Tvmademedoit from Lawdale, Ca replies: "It can wear on your teeth and cause much damage to your insides over time if it is not diluted. It is HIGHLY acidic."
[YEA] 04/16/2010: Exboss from Chicago, Il: "I don't usually go for "health food" or "organic" or "natural" remedies... but I'm totally convinced about apple cider vinegar. I hope I don't offend anybody on this site; I put a big splash of acv in a 32 oz bottle with a packet of peach ice tea mix and lots of water and ice. I love it! Another recipe is to add a splash of acv and an equal splash of lime juice to 32 oz of water and ice. Sweeten with agave (another new discovery!) to taste. Wonderful!!"Replies
01/01/2011: G from Bullhead City, Arizona replies: "You will be discovering a whole array of these natural and very healthy alternatives to the modern day processed food that has been making many people sick through out the years."
[YEA] 04/13/2010: Karen from Williston, Nd, Usa: "I have been racking my brain trying to come up with a way to get my kids to take ACV. Drinking it in water is out of the question, but today I mixed 2 tbsp ACV, 1/4 tsp baking soda in 8 oz of organic apple juice and you can't taste the vinegar at all. Just tastes like apple juice. This might be a solution for those who want the benefits but not the taste."
[YEA] 04/07/2010: Ester from Pretoria, Gauteng, South Africa: "It is most enjoyable to mix the daily dose of apple cider vinegar with grapefruit juice - the slightly bitter taste neutralizes the astringency of the vinegar. I use one table spoon of apple cider vinegar to a glass of grapefruit juice."
[YEA] 02/21/2010: Mohini from Suva, Fiji Islands: "I add a little amount to salt to reduce the sourness of vinegar. I sometimes make a drink with lemon juice, water, salt and little honey or sugar and add some crushed mint leaves. The drink is refreshing specially during the summers."
02/03/2010: S from Siloam Springs, Arkansas: "I like apple cider vinegar with salt instead of any kind of sweetner. 1 tablespoon ACV in 8 oz water with 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt. Is this good, or bad?"
[YEA] 01/31/2010: Dgray1701 from Greenfield, Indiana: "I am surprised I haven't read about my ACV concoction, unless I've just missed it. I mix 1-2 tablespoons (depending on the need) with about 8 ounces of very cold all natural apple juice. I drink one first thing in the morning and about an hour before bed. I've learned to truly love the mix. It generally tastes like a very tart apple cider. You can adjust the amount of juice to control the dilution ratio of the ACV accordingly to your personal taste. It will obviously cost you more if you choose to mix the ACV with more juice. I hope this helps..."
