Super Smoothies with Apple Cider Vinegar

Smoothies are a great way to add fruity, fibrousy, vitaminy goodness to your day. When they also contain greens and veggies, you're giving your body a substantial health boost, but if you really want to knock it out of the park, make your smoothie a Super Smoothie by adding Apple Cider Vinegar! 

 

The fresh taste of smoothies is the perfect camouflage for ACV's powerfully acidic zing, and it's a great way to sneak in that extra dose of probiotics, too! This Pear and Ginger Smoothie is one of our favourites, but there are a few other ideas here to make your daily ACV moment a Eureka! moment. 

 

Without further ado, enjoy these Super ACV Smoothies!
