Apple Cider Vinegar Berry Sparkler |

Many years ago, I read an article touting all the wonderful health benefits of drinking apple cider vinegar on a daily basis. It sounded intriguing (and a little crazy!) but I purchased a bottle of apple cider vinegar and incorporated in into my daily routine – 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar stirred in roughly 8 ounces of water…add honey, as desired. While I enjoyed that as-is (no honey, in fact!), I wanted to create an apple cider vinegar drink that was fruity and fun that my family and friends would enjoy too,…such as this Apple Cider Vinegar Berry Sparkler!

Diet Mixed Berry Smoothie

This Diet Mixed Berry Smoothie is quick and easy to make and perfect for breakfast on a busy morning, a post-workout recovery drink, or an afternoon pick me up.  Made with just a few healthy ingredients, it’s a vitamin-packed smoothie that can be enjoyed anywhere, anytime (and portable too for when you’re on-the-go!).


Recently, I was given the opportunity to try Ocean Spray’s Diet Juice Drinks and thought it would a tasty addition to this smoothie recipe.  At only 5 calories per serving, swapping out full-calorie juices in favor of Ocean’ Spray’s Diet Juice Drinks can help save calories (and carbs, if that’s a concern), while still tasting delicious.   For this recipe, I used Ocean Spray’s Diet Cranberry juice and it went nicely with the berries used in the rest of this smoothie.  For next time, I have my eyes on the Diet Blueberry Pomegranate!
