Switchel is fun to say & fun to drink and has been one of our unexpected hits this summer that I am excited to share with you!
It's an old-timey drink to stay hydrated in the summer heat that's super nourishing, inexpensive & simple to make — and my children love it!
Shake together —
2 cups. water
2 tablespoons organic unfiltered apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon raw honey*
A heaping 1/4 tps. cinnamon
This makes roughly 1 serving that i make in the glass milk bottles shown above. However, take the simple ratio of water / acv / honey and adjust as needed.
* Heating Raw honey kills all the nutritional elements. The honey will eventually dissolve in the switchel. However, to speed this up, simply add a bit of room temp water to the honey and stir with a fork to make it more fluid before adding it to the switchel.
Switchel is best ice cold but my children love it room temp as well. It is somewhat tart, slightly sweet and not at all overpowering. Unfiltered apple cider vinegar is incredibly nourishing to our bodies — balances PH levels in the body, is great for digestion and aids in detoxifying the body.
You can add smashed berries, ginger, turmeric etc., but really the honey/cinnamon combo is so refreshing & simple.
