We asked our Registered Dietitian, Johane Filemon, to share how she helps care for her gut, and herself, throughout her busy life!

As a mother of five, I understand the stressors that many parents face first thing in the morning. There is a strong tie between the way our bodies are cared for and our emotions. Taking steps to improve gut health can help us reduce the impact of some of these stressors. Here is a simple gut-friendly mocktail to help you take care.

Digestion Shot Mocktail

6 oz Splendid Spoon Digestion Shot
2 tsp of apple cider vinegar
~2 cups of sparkling water
4 cloves
2 Star anise
2 Cinnamon sticks (Ceylon if possible)
1-2 tsp of honey (Optional)
Apple peel/slices for garnish


  1. Add ACV, Digestion Shot, cinnamon sticks, star anise, cloves, and honey (if desired) to a saucepan. Allow to simmer on low heat to integrate the flavors.
  2. Remove mixture from heat and let cool to room temperature.
  3. Add ice to a cocktail glass
  4. Strain half of Digestion Shot mixture and add to cocktail glass
  5. Top with sparkling water
