Metabolism Boosting Apple Pie Tea

Hot Apple Cinnamon Water

With the days getting shorter and the nights colder, we’ve got a great hot fruit infused water recipe that will warm you up and tastes great too.

Now that the weather has turned cold I wanted to try a warm version of my favorite Apple Pie flavored drink and this was the perfect choice.

What you need:

(makes 2 liters)
  • 1 Fuji or other sweet apple thinly sliced
  • 2 Cinnamon Sticks (do not use powder it will not dissolve)

Get started:

You have two options, the tea pot or tea cup method.

For the tea pot method, pile all the ingredients into your tea pot, cover with water and bring  to a boil. Serve in a tea cup or travel mug with an extra cinnamon stick to stir with if desired.

For the tea cup method, place 1/4 of your apple slices and 1/2 a cinnamon stick to a tea cup or travel mug, pour boiling water over the cinnamon stick and apples and  let seep until cool enough to drink, 2-4 minutes. Refill tea cup with  hot water until the flavor is lost, at that time discard used fruit and  cinnamon and add another 1/4 cup of your apple slices and another 1/2 cinnamon stick.

This Apple Pie Tea recipe is part of the Metabolism Boosting chapter of our cookbook Fruit Infusion: A Collection of Day Spa Inspired, Fruit Infused Waters.  It’s a colorful cookbook full of metabolism boosting, fat burning drinks,  teas, sodas and ice cubes. With over 40 recipes to choose from you and  your taste buds will never be bored with water again!

Day Spa Pineapple, Grapefruit and Apple Water

Day Spa Pineapple Grapefruit and Apple Water

Did you know both grapefruit and apple boost metabolism and curb your appetite? I love foods that help me with my weight loss journey and these two are big ones. Top that with water also curbing your appetite and you have a great refreshing drink that works for you!

Use your favorite kind of apple I used a Green Apple because I wanted to play up the tartness of the grapefruit, if you like your drinks more on the sweet side use a Sweet Crisp or Fuji and use the whole thing. You can also squeeze the pineapple as you add it in, it might add between 5-10 calories to each glass but that is nothing! You burn 5 calories drinking the glass of water!

Makes 1 big pitcher, you can re-fill 3-5 times.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 Grapefruit
  • 1/2 Apple
  • 1/2 of a Pineapple- fresh
  • Ice and Water- Fizzy water is good too, just skip the ice.

Get started:

Cut the Grapefruit into medium sized slices, same with the apple and add into a pretty juice pitcher. Cut the pineapple into medium to thin slices, ideally you want to try and get all the slices about the same size. Add the pineapple squeezing a little if you want it sweeter, then top with 2 cups ice, top that with water and place in the fridge for 4 hours. Once you have enjoyed 1/2 of your pitcher of water re-fill it and you can repeat this as long as the flavor stays.

I hope you can learn to enjoy flavored waters and put down sodas and fake sugar drinks like Crystal Light, Mios and Propel. Those are just chemicals, they are not good for you!

Day Spa Apple Cinnamon Water

Metabolism Boosting Drinks for Weight Loss

Did you know both apples and cinnamon raise your metabolism? Try this now famous Apple Cinnamon Water drink, and any day can feel like fall.

Fuji and Honey Crisp apples work best as they are the sweetest. Keep in mind this drink has a hint of flavor, should you want it stronger add more apples or slice them thinner.

The Original Day Spa Apple Cinnamon Water Recipe was created by Audrey Johns, founder of LoseWeightbyEating.com and author of this website.

Makes 2 liters, re-fill water 3-4 times before replacing apples and cinnamon.

Day Spa Apple Cinnamon WaterINGREDIENTS:

  • 1 Apple thinly sliced, I like Fuji but pick your favorite
  • 1 Cinnamon Stick

DIRECTIONS:

Drop apple slices in the bottom of the pitcher (save a few to drop in your glass later) and then the cinnamon stick, cover with ice about 1/2 way through then with water. Place in the fridge for 1 hour before serving.

LASTS FOR 24 HOURS IN THE FRIDGE.
