No matter how “great-tasting” they’re said to be, liquid vitamins are ‘blehk‘.
Yeah, a few may have a decent base flavor, but there’s always that underlying ‘vitaminy’ taste that just makes you NOT look forward to taking it.

Sure some folks can toss their liquid vitamins back with no problem (my husband & daughter come to mind), but that just doesn’t cut it for picky people like you and me.
But here’s the thing…
There’s no benefit in having a great product just sitting there lonesome in your fridge or cupboard because you refuse to take it.
Which is precisely why I’ve put together these…
Best ways to take liquid vitamins if you’re picky:
1. Make It Juicy!
Mix your liquid supplement with orange or any other juice that tastes similar to the base flavor of your vitamin.
For example: If your supplement has a citrusy flavor, choose a citrus juice. If the flavor is grape, mix it with grape juice, etc.
Mine has an orange-pineapple flavor and I think I’ve got it somewhat down to a science where you can barely detect anything has been added!
Here is my “recipe” for taking liquid vitamins and minerals in juice:
– 1 ounce (or whatever the recommended serving is) of liquid vitamins
– 1 ounce of water (optional, but mainly if your supplement is concentrated)
– 6-8 oz of orange and/or pineapple juice
– 1 TBS lemon juice
Stir it up and enjoy your power-punched juice!
Even my VERY picky children drink it this way and claim, “It just tastes like orange juice“.
2. Shake It Up!
When I heard someone say that I could mix liquid vitamins in with my favorite meal replacement shake, I thought to myself, “Yeah RIGHT! That would taste awful!”
But one day I got brave enough to try it and low and behold, it was great!
Couldn’t even tell the vitamin had been mixed in there.
Disclaimer: The same company that makes my shakes, also makes my vitamins. So, I’m not sure whether or not that has any bearing on them complimenting each other so well. But try your shake & vitamin together and see if it works out.
3. Knock It Back With a Twist!
Although mixing your liquid vitamin supplement in something is better than not taking them at all, I’ve found that when I just bite the bullet and knock it straight back, it packs more of a punch and the results are felt quicker.
But what about that yucky ‘vitaminy’ taste?
Well, one day I thought about how people take shots and suck on a lime wedge right afterward. So, I decided to try it with my vitamin. The verdict?
Much more palatable!
But when I stir lime juice directly INTO the vitamins and put a little lime juice on my tongue right before downing it… even BETTER!
You can use either lime or lemon (lime is my personal favorite) and yes, you can use the bottled lemon or lime juice as well, although fresh is always better. But use what you have on hand.
4. Make It Go Down Smoothly In A Smoothie!
Whip up your favorite fruit smoothie and blend the supplement into it.
This is probably my least favorite way, as I still taste a slight hint of the vitamin flavor. But it’s still way better than taking it straight.
So, if you prefer a liquid-based vitamin supplement over pills BUT have a hard time taking it, remember and apply these tips!
