I’ve never been a big apple juice fan. Although, I do like things made with apples, such as applesauce, apple pie, apples in my oatmeal, etc. … just not the juice itself.
Then, my brilliant self realized the common ingredient in all of those. . . CINNAMON. Right.
So, I added a little cinnamon to my fresh apple juice, shook it up [benefit of drinking out of a mason jar] and voila. AMAZING.
With the addition of the cinnamon, it almost felt like a treat.
ps. These are the jars I use!
Health Benefits of Apple Juice:
- Flushes the liver and kidneys and is low in calories

Today’s 3 Tips on Juicing:
- Keep the juice machine on the kitchen counter in the beginning [or for a while].
- Sweeten green juices with a piece of fruit
- Best to drink on an empty stomach and to drink slowly.
How are you all feeling after an entire week of juicing? Eager to buy a juicer? Making an extra stop at your local shop for fresh juice? If you’re totally bored with all this, I apologize. I’ll be back to posting solid foods next week. In the meantime, have a fabulous weekend!!
Apple + Cinnamon Juice
*requires a juicer
- 3 apples, cored and cut into large pieces – small enough to fit into the juicer
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Turn on the juicer.
Add apple pieces, one at a time.
Pour the fresh apple juice into a glass, add cinnamon, then shake or stir. Enjoy!
Fresh juice is best consumed immediately after juicing and would recommend not going more than 3 days.
