By now, we all know that apple cider vinegar is praised as one of the healthiest ingredients and the most powerful natural remedies in the world.
But, you don’t have to just reap its benefits by consuming it in its liquid form- you can also use it to prep some amazing apple cider vinegar gummies.
Yes, you’ve read right, gummies- they’re so easy to make and are very tasty.
They contain only natural sweetener, i.e. fruit juice and maple syrup and everyone will enjoy them, without fearing any side effects.
Apple Cider Vinegar & Agar Agar Benefits
The main ingredient of these gummies is agar agar- a seaweed product that doesn’t taste anything like seaweed but it has the gelatinizing property.
This is why these gummies are also plant-based and vegan-friendly. When combined together with apple cider vinegar, agar makes these gummies an excellent healthy and tasty treat.
Agar-agar is a gel-like substance extracted from red algae and it’s a common thickening agent in soups, sauces, desserts, and candies.
It’s one of the most popular alternatives to regular gelatine because it’s flavourless and also plant-based.
It’s rich in manganese, magnesium, folate, fiber, iron, and calcium.
It’s believed to better the digestion, help keep you sated for longer and prevent overeating calories and thus encouraging weight loss; it also strengthens the bones, lowers the risk of anemia, and more.
Apple cider vinegar is also a potent natural remedy as well- from helping regulating the blood sugar levels, encouraging weight loss, and lowering the blood pressure to reducing bad cholesterol and relieving allergy symptoms, it’s really an amazing ingredient no one should be missing out on!
How to Make Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies at Home
*boost your daily ACV dosage with this bite-size gummies!
1.5 cups of some organic fruit juice
½ cup of apple cider vinegar, unpasteurized
2 tbsp of agar powder
1-2 tbsp of maple syrup
Mix the fruit juice and the ACV in a saucepan and stir it well. Then, add the agar over it and whisk until it’s dissolved.
Then, turn on the stove to medium-low heat and put the saucepan on it.
When the mixture begins to simmer, whisk once more. Do it on and off for 5 minutes or until you get a syrup-like thick consistency, but not too thick like honey.
If you want to, towards the end, add some maple syrup for more sweetness and stir to dissolve.
Then, into appropriate molds (ice cube trays will work just fine), pour the liquid and put them in the fridge.
Keep them at least for 60 minutes before consuming.
Store them in the fridge.
