Every morning I’ve been slugging back Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) in my water and, although I’m used to the taste now, it would be nice to drink normal water sometimes. Thus, I created these ACV gummies to replace the drink.
ACV is thought to have a number of health benefits. According to Reader’s Digest Canada*, it can lower cholesterol, help to sooth a sore throat, aid in digestion and weight-loss, boost energy, help control blood sugar, and even help to get rid of dandruff when diluted and applied topically.
If you have never taken ACV in your water, the taste can be a bit overwhelming at first. Taking ACV in gummy-form is much more palatable.
This recipe is vegan, gluten-free and takes only minutes to make. You only need three ingredients – Apple Cider Vinegar with the “Mother”, Organic Apple Juice and Agar Agar. And water, but that doesn’t count. If you are just starting out, I would recommend using more apple juice in replace of the water to help sweeten the taste.
The molds – I buy my molds through Amazon. You can find the ones I used here. When making any sort of gummy, it is important to use silicone for your molds. Silicone allows your set jelly to pop out easily.
If you haven’t tried implementing ACV into your diet, I would highly recommend it. These gummies are the perfect way to receive all of the health benefits and less of the prolonged strong taste. I hope they work well for you!
