These days in between Christmas and New Years are made for sweet hot drinks and hours spend on the couch, aren’t they? I think so and this is why I have a little recipe for you here 🙂
I love hot apple juice with cinnamon… and I love to pimp my hot apple juice with some extra healthy ingredients. This is how I came up with this aronia-apple cider.
Aronia berries have an extremely high concentration of antioxidants and loads of vitamins like vitamin-C, vitamin A, vitamin E, beta-carotene and folate. The berry also has minerals like potassium, iron and manganese. All in all, Aronia definetly is a super food and since I like to make my drinks, snacks, and meals as healthy as possible, it is obivous that I like to add some aronia to my apple cider recipe 🙂
For 0,8 L (two big jars) aronia-apple cider, you will need:
0,5 L Apple juice
0,33 L Aronia juice (always buy organic)
Peel of half a lemon
Peel of half an orange
1 ts cinnamon
A few cloves
Add all ingredients in a small pot and boil for around 20 minutes. You may want to add a little more cinnamon in the end. If you like it even sweeter, just add some maple syrup. If you like it less sweet, add some water.
I hope you all had a most amazing Christmas and I wish you the very very best for 2017! Enjoy the last few days of this wonderful year!
I will be with my family until December 31 and will not be blogging much but I am looking forward already to all the bigger and smaller blogging projects waiting for me in 2017 and I cannot wait to share everything I have in my mind with you guys!
