Do you need to give your body a break from all the Christmas cookies, Eggnog with Bourbon and Beef & Bernaise?

Start your day with a kickass healthy drink of Cranberry, Apple Cider Vinegar & Lemon Juice. This power drink is packed with healthy juices that boosts your metabolism into high gear, cleanses the system, and kills sugar cravings.  I learned about the Cranberry, Apple Cider Vinegar & Lemon Juice Drink drink from Dr. Eric Berg,  a popular wellness doctor and author. You can watch his video to learn about the science behind apple cider vinegar. (The  drink recipe is discussed at mark 10:00). I noticed improvements right away when I tried it, and now always keep a mug in the fridge ready to sip. It is especially good the next morning after eating large, heavy, fatty meals like Thanksgiving, Pasta Alfredo or an All-Pork Belly Porchetta feast. I’ve told several of my friends and family about it and they have now become converts.

Yes, Cranberry, Apple Cider Vinegar & Lemon Juice Drink is as tart as it sounds. The trick is to add ice cubes, lots of water and keep it chilled.  Dr. Berg’s recipe calls for 6 ounces of water but I usually add 10 ounces of water. I have also tried Perrier in lieu of water and find that very refreshing too.

To get the maximum effectiveness of this drink, you must high-quality ingredients. The cranberry juice must be 100% pure juice – no sugar or other juices added. Bragg Organic Apple Cider Vinegar comes with the “mother” in the bottle and is considered the best apple cider vinegar.  You can use the juice of fresh lemons of course. However, I strongly recommend that you get a bottle of  Italian Volcano organic lemon juice, which has the juice of 40 fresh organic lemons. You can order it at Amazon


  • 2 ounces pure cranberry juice
  • 1 - 2 teaspoons Italian Volcano Organic Lemon juice
  • 1 - 2 teaspoons Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar

  1. Add to a 16 ounce glass or sports cup.
