As some of y’all know, I’ve been reading and semi-following the Trim Healthy Mama plan. One of the things that they discuss is all the great benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar. It can help lower blood pressure and help you lose weight among other benefits. It’s great for your body but it doesn’t taste that great by itself.
Several ladies have come up with concoctions for apple cider vinegar and are referring to them as Good Girl Moonshine. Many recipes call for strawberries and lemons. I opened the fridge this morning and released we used all our strawberries making Strawberry Shortcake last night. What we had left were some blackberries since they are only $.99 at Aldi this week. I decided to give it a whirl and see if I could come up with my own concoction. It does have a bit of a zing to it from the ginger. Here’s what I did:
- 1/4 cup blackberries
- 2 cups water
- 1 cup ice
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- truvia to taste
- 1 tsp ginger
- Throw all items in the blender and blend until smooth. Enjoy your slush!
Of course, to each his own, but we enjoyed it and my kids even drank some. I still think strawberry is my favorite version, but sometimes you work with what you have!
