Apple Cinnamon Water is good for you and taste great!

I tried apple cinnamon water for the first time almost a year ago and loved it. That was before I even knew about the great benefits of drinking it. I thought you might find it interesting as well. If you haven't tried it and you like apples, you'll probably enjoy it just as much as I do. Let us know what you think about it. Recipe below.

If I don't have a cinnamon stick can I just use the ground cinnamon?

It's better to use the cinnamon sticks. The ground cinnamon would have a different effect. You can find sticks in the "spices and seasonings" of most grocery stores or you can google them and purchase online. Here is a link to http://www.mccormick.com/spices-and-flavors/herbs-and-spices/spices/Cinnamon-Sticks?utm_source=google-bing&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=+cinnamon_+sticks&utm_content=Cinnamon_Sticks_categorylp&utm_campaign=coreazeg&k_clickid=29505fb6-8f8d-8d69-5322-00004edf7e4d. There are tons of other online retailers that sale them as well. Just make sure they are pure cinnamon. Good luck. Hope this helps.

Made some for the first time last night. We tried some early this morning and there is just a faint hint of flavor, is this right or do we need to add more apple and cinnamon stick ?

That happened to me the first time as well. You might try adding more apple and cinnamon depending on desired taste. It kind of requires playing with both ingredients until you acquire your preferred flavor. I recommend putting a "little"more of both ingredients and leaving them in the refrigerator a couple extra hours.I loved it right away, but for many it is definitely an acquired taste. Please let me know if it works out better with more fridge time.

I have tried this and I boil my water with the cinnamon sticks in the water...and I let it cool before I pour it into a container, more flavor of the sticks come out I found...

This is my 3rd day on the water and there is a difference. I have more energy and do not need coffee and diet soda. I am using the red apples and cinnamon sticks - it seems to be more flavorful after soaking over night. But I like doing something different, normally I would just do the lemon water.

That's wonderful! I like the red apples too! What type of red apples to you use (gala, honey crisp...)? I also notice a much needed natural energy boost. I love this recipe that's why I wanted to share it. So glad it made a difference for you as well:).

Good questions. From my general knowledge, it's good to take it upon rising when your body has been in a natural state of fasting all night. Drinking apple cinnamon water can potentially assist in kick starting your metabolism and digestive system. It is also helpful to drink it 30 minutes before a meal this will enhance the nutritional absorption, increase digestion and energy derived from your meal.It is strongly recommended you confer with a doctor or expert if you other health issues in order to get appropriate advice based on your individual needs

I saw the recipe on facebook. I made a pitcher of it this morning. I added a small amount of lemon juice to help the apples keep their flavor. I loved the flavor and have even passed the idea on to a friend today! Thank you!

Okay so do you need to have the apples in your glass in order for the bevarage to effect you as you are drinking the beverage or is it fine if you just drink the water (apples,ice& cinnamon stick is still in the pitcher)

Keri, i read on another site that someone boiled her apples and cinnamon like tea then added cold water before putting in fridge. I don't know if this works as good but I guess it would help you if you can't have raw.

I used granny smith myself and let my pitcher sit over night and it really had a strong apple flavor. I'm drinking my first cup and I'll let you know of my first day. I'm really sluggish in the morning until 10 so if this works I'm a believer!

Apples should be fine to eat after especially if you keep it refrigerated. Apples turn a little after a while, and I prefer to just discard of them after I finish water, but I'm kind of ticky like that.

I think it's at your discretion, but feel free to inquire with a physician to make sure. My motto is too much of anything may not be best. In gist, be careful not to over do it. Talk to your doctor as well.

I was told you could add a lil lemon juice to keep the apples fresher. As well as some honey for those who like a sweeter taste. What do you think?

Thanks for the recipe. This is great. Two of my favourite foods together, with apple and cinnamon you can't go wrong. For my taste the drink needed more cinnamon than usual. I have been drinking for two days now, I have noticed that I seem to have more energy and not as lethargic. Like HJ posted, I to have not had the need for diet soft drinks. My wife has been drinking the 'appcin' drink, she also noticed she has more energy.
