Garlic Ginger Lemon Apple Cider “Drink”

This is a “remedy” we found online that is said to help “unblock” blood vessels and help with heart dieases …

I’m not sure if it works, but my mum is quite into this thing and she is drinking it almost daily … Anyway, I think it’s quite harmless as all the ingredients are “food”, edible and each have some benefits to our health.

The only thing I don’t like about it is that its taste … (not very good) and its advised to drink on an empty stomach first thing in the morning … We try to avoid taking on empty stomach because its quite strong and your stomach might not be able to take it!

  • Lots of garlic, peeled

    • About 24 cloves
  • Lots of ginger, peeled

    • About 250-280g
  • Mum has superpower, how she does that?

    • Nah, it’s actually very easy!
    • Yes, she has superpower!
  • Lemon juice …

    • 0.5 cup (I used 1.5 lemons)
  • Chopped and blend

    • As fine as possible
  • Filter and squeezed the juice out

    • Ok
  • Heat on medium-high till boil then continue on low fire for about 30 minutes

    • Before cooking, remember to add in the apple cider (0.5 cup) and lemon juice
    • And do not cover the lid or it’ll start oozing out all over the place!!
  • Add honey to balance it a little (else its very sour and spicy …)

    • Yes
  • Let it cool and bottle!

    • Glass bottle pls!
  • 1 teaspoon daily (preferrably in the morning)

    • Yes

  1. My oldest daughter videos me trying to eat sour candies lol. I add garlic to many foods, but drinking it like this I do not think I could handle. Maybe it is due to me having acid reflux lol. Glad if it helps others though.

    • If you have stomach problems … then this will be too strong for you … I love garlic in cooking too!!
      LOL I can imagine how it is to be eating sour candies! I used to take them a lot because work is too boring … haha

  2. This looks interesting but be careful with that, especially for what it is for, because lots of ginger, garlic and lemon too in some cases can be wrong – she should contact a doctor to check if she is allowed to use it…!

  3. One has to have a cast iron stomach for it.
    I suggest, using garlic in making some nice soups. Especially put with parsley rosemary and sage and thyme.
    Ginger and honey go nicely in a hot drink.
    Ginger is good for the digestion.
    Cinnamon is great for many things, including lowering cholesterol.

    • It’s true, this “drink” is a little strong … so just don’t drink it on empty stomach or if your stomach is weak. I guess my mum was wanting something of more “faster” effect… and that her friend also recommended this …

      I drink ginger tea too, its delicious with honey! To be honest, I’d prefer ginger tea over this “drink” but well… I think this works faster
