Maple Switchel-Nature’s Gatorade
This yummy, electrolyte replenishing, antioxidant filled, probiotic goodness is perfect for adults and kids alike. It’s a great all-natural “Gatorade” alternative, is super refreshing, and it provides a boost for your gut health. You may be wondering, what is “Switchel”? Switchel is an all-natural, probiotic drink that’s been around for centuries. It is a fermented drink that contains apple cider vinegar (along with water, a natural sweetener – MAPLE! – and a flavoring like ginger root). It may be an acquired taste for some, but we think it’s very refreshing and a great alternative to sugary sodas and juices. We hope you agree!
