Apple and Cinnamon Water

This has got to be my favourite summer drink. A friend shared an article about this combination a few weeks ago on Facebook and as with everything I read on Facebook, I take it with a pinch of salt (not literally in this case :)) as you never quite know how truthful the “facts” are. So as far as the “raising the metabolism” and health facts go, I can’t comment, but what I can say is that it is very refreshing and more-ish. I can easily glug down two litres of this in a day so anyone who has trouble drinking your recommended daily intake of water, I highly recommend you give this a try.

It not only looks great in a beautiful jug in the fridge, but everyone who’s come over for a visit and tried some has enjoyed a glass too. I find that the more tart-sweet the apple, the more the taste comes through in the water. At the moment I have Mahana Red sweet apples in mine and I refill the jug as I pour out a glass so it is constantly full and cool and I find it lasts well for about 3 – 4 days before the apple has lost it’s flavour and needs to be replaced.

Apple Cinnamon Water

ingredients:
1 – 2 litres water (I just use tap water as we’re lucky enough to be able to do that in NZ)
1 – 2 apples, depending on size
2 sticks dried cinnamon
ice blocks

  1. Slice the apple and remove all core and seeds. Place into the jug along with the cinnamon sticks.
  2. Add the water and ice blocks and voila!

Enjoy!
