Pure Planet Apple Cider Vinegar Cookies

Pure Planet Apple Cider Vinegar Cookies
Sweater season is nearly upon us and pumpkin spice isn’t the only thing in the air. What’s that crisp, sweet smell, you ask? Apples, of course!
While we’re not going to say that 1 apple a day will keep all the illnesses at bay, we do know that apples, fresh and fermented, are one of the planet’s most nutritiously-dense fruits.
As the market stands are loaded with organic, freshly-picked apples, it’s high time for some recipe inspo that blends seasonal raw foods with our Apple Cider Vinegar drinks so you can enjoy the best of each world this harvest season.
Here are two yummy ACV cookie recipes!
Apple Cider Vinegar Lemon Cookie

Lemon, Ginger Cookies

If you’re looking for a snack with a a little twang, these babies will hit the spot. The moment we saw this Loving it Vegan recipe, we just knew we had to put our own spin on it.

Just feast your eyes (and your mouth) on this recipe. Who can say that your cookie has digestive-boosting ingredients, like ginger and apple cider vinegar? You can after you give this a try!

What You’ll Need:

  • 1-2 teaspoons or 1 scoop of Pure Planet Apple Cider Vinegar – Probiotic*
  • 1/2 cup of vegan butter
  • 3/4 cup of coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp lemon zest for more lemon taste

* You may want an additional 1-2 teaspoons or 1 scoop for a stronger, bolder taste. 


Add the ingredients together.

  1. Mix the vegan butter and coconut sugar together until it is creamy. This may be easier if you use a mixer of some sort, but your hand and spoon work too!
  2. Mix in 1-2 teaspoons of Pure Planet ACV.

  4. Mix in almond milk.
  5. Separate your dough into small ball-sized pieces and flatten for thinner cookies.

Apple Cider Vinegar Alkalizer Cookie

Chocolate, Cherry Cookies

This sweet treat is sure to please if you love cherry and chocolate. Plus, you get the added bonus of enjoying something delicious and nutritious! We adapted a recipe from Detoxinista to include one of our favorite alkalizing blends, which includes cherry, beets and ACV!

What You’ll Need: 

*You may want an additional 1-2 teaspoons or 1 scoop for a stronger, bolder taste. 


  1. Mix the almond flour and coconut oil together in a bowl.
  2. Add in Pure Planet ACV, maple syrup and baking soda. Mix well.

Refreshing Apple Cider Vinegar Recipes

Everything’s coming up apples this month at Pure Planet. We launched two new apple cider vinegar products, a lemon-flavored Probiotic and a cherry-delicious Alkalizer. Each refreshing blend has their own set of benefits and tastes.

So, if an apple a day can’t keep you away, try using our Apple Cider products in these tasty drink recipes.

 Lemon Berry Apple Cider

When the sun shines bright, nothing beats a crisp, cool drink. Primally Inspired’s Lemon Berry Apple Cider seems mighty good, so we think it would taste even better with Apple Cider: Probiotic as a substitute. A refreshing glass that can help us keep cool and aid digestion? Yes, please!

What you’ll need for one glass:

  • 2 tablespoons fresh or frozen berries
  • 1 scoop of Apple Cider Probiotic
  • Ice
  • Water
  • Optional sweetener like raw honey

What to Do:

  1. Drop berries into a glass (with sweetener, if applicable) and softly muddle with back of spoon.
  2. Pour water in glass.
  3. Mix in one scoop of Apple Cider Probiotic.
  4. Add ice.
  5. Enjoy!

Beet-Cherry Switchel

If you’ve never heard of a switchel drink before, it is basically a drink comprised of four ingredients: vinegar, ginger, water and a sweetener like honey or syrup. We think that both Apple Cider products would be a perfect ingredient to plenty of switchel mixes (our Probitic already contains two of the necessary ingredients)!

Try substituting Apple Cider Alkalizer for tart cherry in this switchel recipe by YurielKaim. You’ll miss out on the tart taste of cherry, but gain the vibrant taste of beets and cherry!

Makes 4 servings:

  • 3 tbsp fresh grated ginger
  • tbsp Apple Cider Alkalizer
  • 3 tbsp blackstrap molasses
  • 3 tbsp tart cherry juice
  • 4 cups water
 What to do:
  1. Add all ingredients into a large sealed container
  2. Shake well to combine
  3. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, and serve over ice


And of course, there’s no need to add extra vinegar when using any of the Apple Cider mixes! So, just stick to our mix, ginger, water and your sweetener of choice!

Sparkling Water Splash

Recipes are fun, but sometimes you just don’t have the time! Looking for a quick way to to make drinks with a splash? Substitute sparkling or seltzer water for regular water when mixing our Apple Cider drinks!

Happy mixing!

Apple Cider Vinegar & Alkalinity

Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is a gem in the superfood health world. We’ve talked about how it is sometimes connected to digestive health, but some nutritionists also link it to alkalizing pH levels in your body.

We know what you’re thinking–what in the world is a pH and alkalinity? (And if you already know, then great, here’s a refresher!) Without boring you with all the scientific details, let’s put our lab coats on and dive in!

pH, Acidity and Alkalinity

Every water-soluble substance (or solution) has a pH level, which stands for “power of hydrogen.” That’s just a fancy way of describing how many hydrogen ions are present in a solution. The scale ranges from 0 to 14, with a neutral level at 7. Anything under 7 is considered more acidic, while anything closer to 14 is considered alkaline.

Body pH

Our bodies have multiple pH levels–including our blood, and even our stomachs. Your body naturally balances your pH, to the best of its abilities. Most nutritionists suggest that our bodies’ pH levels lean slightly to the alkaline, but that depends on which part of the body. For example, your stomach will most likely be more acidic, which makes total sense! Acid is needed to help gastrointestinal functions, like dissolving enzymes. But for the most part, The American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC) reports your body’s pH level should be around 7.4, which is usually tested by saliva, urine or blood sample.

If your body’s pH level (not counting your stomach) is acidic, there may be a problem, including acidosis (an excess of acid in the body). This can happen if your liver lungs and kidneys can’t balance your body’s acidity in, leading to complications like kidney failure. Acidosis is most likely to occur when there is an underlying condition.

Apple Cider Vinegar and pH

So, where does apple cider vinegar come in? Well, many nutritionists believe that among a bunch of other health benefits, ACV can help your body maintain a balanced pH. This is because of its nature. Vinegar goes through a fermentation process, which usually produces acid. Although vinegar is technically an acid, this acid is believed to have an opposite, alkalizing effect on the body.

Apple Cider Vinegar: Alkalize

With our superfood know-how, Pure Planet has taken what we know about alkalinity and oxygenation, and created a refreshing new blend. Welcome, Apple Cider: Alkalize!

Alkalize pairs ACV with nutrient superfoods beets and cherries, boosting oxygenation and alkalizing properties. Plus, the group blends together to make a yummy-tasting drink.

Alkalize is just one of our new ACV products, along with Apple Cider: Probiotic. Try both today!

Apple Cider Vinegar & Digestive Health

Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is taking the health world by storm and for good reason! With an abundance of qualities and properties, ACV has been used as a home remedy for a long time. With the rising interest in probiotics, ACV once again takes center stage.


In order to understand probiotics, we have to understand our gut first. We know, that’s a tall order–but as the days go on, we learn more and more! Our gut is almost like its own little world, full of its own bacteria and micro-organisms. That’s where probiotics come in.

Think of probiotics as little soldiers that help your gut fight the good fight. Probiotic products contain bacteria and micro-organisms that help your gut dispose of bad bacteria, while encouraging good bacteria to thrive.

Apple Cider Vinegar

So, where does ACV come in? ACV happens to be connected to digestive health, just like probiotics. It contains helpful enzymes, like pectin, which comes from fermented apples. This enzyme helps encourage healthy bacteria growth.

Some nutritionists also believe the fermentation process brings out probiotic enzymes, but this is mostly due to organic ACV and beneficial bacteria it may hold if kept totally intact (if its’ not pasteurized). The acid from fermentation has also been thought to aid digestive health and even acid reflux.

Apple Cider: Probiotic

At Pure Planet, we like to use what Mother Earth has given us. That’s why we used our superfoods know-how to make ACV even better, including alleviating the bitter taste of vinegar. We’ve amped up the the digestive aid nutrients with our new Apple Cider: Probiotic.

Apple Cider: Probiotic contains ginger root, tumeric, lemon and probiotic Lactospore. Ginger root has been connected to help digestion and inflammation. Tumeric is also thought to have anti-inflammatory benefits, with many people using it when they have stomach issues. Lemon, while great-tasting, has also been tied to digestive health. Finally, Lactospore is a well-researched probiotic that can help encourage healthy gut flora. Together, these ingredients work together to make one great-tasting, effective superfood drink!
