  • 30 fl. oz water (3 cans full) (890ml)
  • 3 tablespoon distilled white vinegar
  • 3 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 48-fluid-ounce (1.4 litres) pitcher or similar container

  3. Add vinegar
  4. Add black pepper
  5. Shake vigorously or stir

Notes, tips, and variations[edit]

  • Contents will settle over time, shake vigorously before serving.
  • Recipe is easy to customize. Some options include adding cilantro, garlic, dill weed, peppers, or a few ounces of spinach.
  • Add 3 tbsp (2 servings) of bacon substitute to add a smoky taste and 10 g of protein at the cost of a few grams of fat and 2/10 of a gram of salt.


One 12-fluid-ounce (340g) serving of the juice has only 75 calories, total fat content of 0.5 g with no saturated fat or cholesterol. Also, distinguishing it from store-bought juices, it contains about 91 mg of sodium, less than 3% of the U.S. daily recommended allowance. An off-the-shelf brand might have 420 mg of sodium in an 8-fluid-ounce portion.
