Blueberry Wellness Smoothie with Apple Cider Vinegar & Everyday Superfoods

0

I do enjoy trying exotic healthy foods, but they aren’t always easy to find, and they’re rarely in budget. So for daily smoothies, I lean on nutritious “superfoods” that I can find in most grocery stores. This Blueberry Wellness Smoothie capitalizes on many of those any day, good-for-you-foods. It also incorporates an under-appreciated ingredient, apple cider vinegar, or ACV as it’s often referred to.

Blueberry Wellness Smoothie with Apple Cider Vinegar & Everyday Superfoods

Apple cider vinegar trended a bit a decade or so ago, but it’s enjoying a resurgence. This mother of healthy vinegars touts quite a few potential benefits. Research shows it may help shed harmful bacteria, aid weight loss, and reduce blood levels. Countless anecdotal cases also purport it as a “cure” for digestive issues like GERD. And of course, some people just like the lightly sweet and very tangy taste it lends to recipes.

This recipe uses a unique rice vinegar and apple cider vinegar blend that is lightly sweetened. You can substitute plain old apple cider vinegar – preferably in glass bottles and always with “the mother” (it should use this term on the bottle). We suggest just 1 tablespoon if using straight ACV, but you can use a full 2 tablespoons if you like the taste.
