Citrus Digestive Bitters Recipe

Sunfood’s Citrus Digestive Bitters recipe.Sweet, sour, salty, umami, and bitter are the five major flavors that we can taste. Each time a different flavor hits our tongue our bodies begin to release various digestive enzymes and gastric juices. This digestive bitters recipe helps with your everyday diet. Today our diets are full of sweet, sour, salty, and umami but not a lot of bitter tastes.

Bitter foods and flavors have been used for centuries to help cleanse the body, promote optimal digestion, and increase vitality. As a result, digestive bitters were created. This liquid was consumed usually before or after a meal to help break down food, support the liver, and promote gut health.

Today we’ve created a wonderful Citrus Digestive Bitters recipe that is a powerful blend of herbs and citrus that gently cleanses the body while enhancing digestion and promoting a happy tummy.

Certified Organic Yacon Syrup
Our digestive bitters recipe has 1/4 cup of our Yacon Syrup. Yacon syrup comes from an Andean plant that is a relative of the sunflower, and has been used for thousands of years by Peruvian cultures for its natural health benefits. It is a delicious, molasses-like alternative to cane sugar or high fructose corn syrup.

The Sunfood Difference™
To help our digestive bitters recipe we have added our organic Yacon Syrup. Our delicious yacon syrup is certified organic, non-GMO and vegan. It is a natural sweetener that has a one-of-a-kind flavor similar to caramel, molasses, or maple syrup.  This bottle contains pure yacon that is minimally processed without the use of artificial colors, flavors, additives, or preservatives.

Digestive Bitters Recipe Directions:

  • Cut up citrus fruit and place it (including the rind) into your mason jar.
  • Add all of your spices to the jar along with your honey or yacon.
  • Fill the jar with rum, seal, shake, and label it with the date and what is in it.
  • Let sit for a minimum of 2 weeks (4 weeks is best).
  • After that, strain out all of the solids, leaving only the liquid.
  • Enjoy a splash of our digestive bitters recipe before a meal, when you have a tummy ache, or even just in some sparkling water!
