Apple cider vinegar is one of my favorite natural ways to make sure my digestion is running smoothly. For years I was drinking it every single day. Then, one day out of the blue I couldn’t tolerate the taste! I knew it was good for me and I knew my body needed it so I started to get creative. I thought about Jello Shots and how collage kids make booze into Jello so they don’t have to taste it. Why not do the same thing with some superfoods! Plus there is the added benefit of collagen and all the healing benefit it has.
Collagen: Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies. It is found in muscles, bones, skin, nails, blood vessels, digestive system and tendons. It’s what helps give our skin strength and elasticity, along with replacing dead skin cells. Collagen is known to:
Improve the health of our skin, hair and teeth
Reduce joint pain and degeneration
Help heal leaky gut
Increase lean muscle mass
Improve liver health
Apple cider vinegar: Traditionally, vinegar is made through a long, slow fermentation process, leaving it rich in bioactive components like acetic acid, gallic acid, catechin, epicatechin, caffeic acid, and more, giving it potent antioxidant, antimicrobial, and many other beneficial properties. Apple cider vinegar has been used in many different ways:
To detoxify the body
Treat acid reflux
As a weight loss aid
To treat candida overgrowth
To sooth sunburns
To repel fleas
As an anti fungal
A skin toner

1/2 Cup Bragg Usda Organic Raw Apple Cider Vinegar, 32 Fluid Ounce“>Apple cider vinegar,
The juice of 2 grapefruits and 2 lemons.
3 Tablespoons Wedderspoon Raw Premium Manuka Honey KFactor 16+, 17.6 oz“>Manuka Honey
In a small sauce pan over medium to low heat add half of the apple cider vinegar and half of the fresh juice with all 4 scoops of the collagen. Whisk until the collagen has dissolved. You can check by dipping a clean finger in and looking for a smooth, not grainy feel. Turn off the heat and whisk in the honey. When honey has dissolved remove from heat and whisk in the remaining juice and apple cider vinegar. Pour contents into a glass pyrex dish or measuring cup with spout to pour into molds.
If you are using molds try to plan ahead and make sure you have a large space in your refrigerator to place them. I like to set mine up on a cutting board so I can transfer them all together without spilling.
If you are using a large pyrex dish you can cut them into squares when they are solid.
*Can be kept in the refrigerator for about a week.
