Apple Cider Vinegar Smoothie

Apple Cider Vinegar Veggie Shake

Apple cider vinegar may be the one ingredient you should always keep on hand in your fridge or pantry. It can be used both as an antiseptic and as a daily supplement to help promote weight loss, decrease inflammation, and even potentially help treat diabetes.

Apple cider vinegar is believed to contribute to weight loss efforts, with some studies indicating that it can affect satiation, making participants feel fuller longer after eating.

Made through fermentation, it is a natural probiotic aiding in digestion and in many cases even relieving symptoms of constipation. Vinegar is also well known for its antibacterial properties, even being a possible preventative for foodborne illnesses such as E. Coli.

You can use apple cider vinegar in your cooking, salad dressings and, yes, even in smoothies. Even though it is known for having a pretty potent flavoring, the amount added into this recipe is minimal and will not affect the taste.
