True Citrus GGMS Recipe

In my last post I mentioned how much I LOVE the Facebook groups right?!?  I really do, the ladies there are AMAZING and all of the encouragement a girl could ask for. Anyway, on to the real purpose of this post ;)

 I was scrolling through the posts in the Trim Healthy Mama facebook group and saw a post by fellow TMH-er Kelley Pack about her newest (And favorite!) version of GGMS. It seemed very intriguing and once it was confirmed that the flavoring packets WERE on plan (The sugar amount in the ingredients is so small it has no impact!) I knew I had to try it.  I didn't have the Black Cherry Limeade packets on hand but I DID have another flavor by the same company so I used that instead.  It was AMAZING!!!!  If you don't have any of the flavoring packets on hand you will want to get some, you really shouldn't miss this.  I am going to include both her original recipe here and the version I made after being inspired by her creation.

True Lime Black Cherry Limeade Water Enhancer
*1 serving does 16oz of water.  I actually use 1 serving for a full qt jar though and find the sweetness perfect for my tastes!
2Tbs Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar with "The Mother"
Ice (optional)

Mix flavoring packet, vinegar, water, and ice if desired together in a drinking glass/jar. Enjoy!

P.S. I think that the Ball Drinking Lid & Reusable Straw must be a "thing" for those who THM, and for good reason!  It is one of the best investments I ever made <3

Raspberry Lemonade GGMS
True Lemon Raspberry Lemonade Water Enhancer - 1 serving (More if desired!)
1qt Jar of water
1/4c Ginger Juice (Or ground ginger to taste)
*I make my own ginger juice by blending fresh ginger root with a cup of water and then straining out the fiber.  I add the liquid to a quart jar and fill the rest of the way with water. This can be stored at least a week in the fridge!
2 Tbs Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar with "The Mother"
Ice (optional)

Mix all ingredients together in a 1qt jar and you are done!  I find it easiest to put my ice in first, the ginger and vinegar next, then the flavoring packet and top off with water last.

This brand makes several flavors of water enhancer; I plan to experiment with them all!
