Fresh Mulled Apple Cider Recipe


I can’t tell a lie. This post has been sitting here in drafts for a whole long year. Yes, I created this a year ago and somehow things got busy around here, what with adventure outside posts and Halloween posts, that I somehow missed sharing this most amazingly perfect autumn sipper. Does it get better than a fresh mulled apple cider recipe?

You know I have a thing for the sippable favourites, and when the temperatures get cool, it’s time to heat up those drinks.

Elixirs are frequently my go-to option, but it’s also nice to have other options that can help me make the most of seasonal produce such as apples.

Health Benefits of Apples

Apples are packed with:

Given that it is apple season, we’re really into autumn all Canadian-style and part of that means a whole lot of apples (and toque wearing).

I’ve snuck in a few ingredients here you may not have thought to include in apple cider, like the hormone/adaptogenic root maca and anti-inflammatory turmeric.

It’s delicious – and your kitchen will smell incredible. I hope you’re ready to give this easy apple cider recipe a try.

This apple cider recipe is definitely worth mulling up.

And what about the pulp? I threw mine into a blender and whipped it smooth and used it in place of apple sauce in a most amazing Apple Gingerbread Cake.

    You always have the best ideas! I would’ve never thought to do that with the pulp, but I love knowing that I’m not putting any of it to waste. Thanks for being awesome! :)
