It is apple season! Yellow, green, red… you go to the supermarket and you find apples of all shapes and colors. Well, here is the good news: apples are great for boosting your metabolism and getting rid of toxins.
And there are more ways to benefit from their properties than making an apple pie our sauce: preparing your own apple infused water. And, if you add cinnamon, on top of adding extra flavor, it will help lower your blood sugar level.
Please bear in mind that the ingredients take between 2 to 4 hours to properly infuse, so make sure you prepare it in advance.
Ingredients and machinery:
- 1 liter of filtered water
- 1 sliced apple*
- 1 cinnamon stick*
- 1 glass jar (1L capacity)
* Try to buy these ingredients package-free, from local producers and grown without pesticides.
Apple and cinnamon infused water step by step:
- Slice the apple
- Introduce the sliced apple and the cinnamon stick in the jar
- Fill with 1 liter of fresh filtered water
- Let the mix infuse 2-4 hours
Remember that you can fill the jar with water again a couple of times before discarding the apple and cinnamon. The second and third time will be less strong in flavor but still delicious!
