Apple-Lemon-Cinnamon Drink

Pin It Now!





I used to drink orange juice every single day with my breakfast. It was like my coffee. But after enjoying fresh apple juice from the trees I had for a few years, I made a switch. Now that we've moved, I don't have apple trees anymore. :(  Instead, I've been buying Simply Apple and drinking that.

I like that it isn't as acidic, and I have noticed a huge improvement in my overall complexion. I really have no idea if occasional breakouts and drinking orange juice were related, but all I know is my skin looks much better!

Anyway, one morning I decided to make a quick hot apple drink. This AZ winter has been especially cold in the mornings, and since I don't warm up with coffee, I needed an alternative. Mmmm, so yummy, warming, and soothing this drink is!

What you need:

* About 3/4 cup apple juice
* 1/4 of a lemon, squeezed
* 1/8 tsp. of cinnamon or more if you want

** Combine apple juice and lemon and heat to desired temperature. Add cinnamon. Enjoy.

Tips:

On a warmer day, I made the same drink and left it cold. It tastes wonderful this way, too. (Picture above is of the drink cold.)

My hubby enjoyed this drink hot when he had the flu.

You can also add Thieves to this drink for an extra, healthy boost.

I love this easy, quick, healthy apple drink!!

This sounds really good! I can't wait to try it. It has been super cold here in PA, so I can use a nice warm drink right about now. :-) Thanks so much for linking up with "Try a New Recipe Tuesday." I hope you're able to join us again this week! :-)
