Fall Apple Cinnamon Infused Water

When fall comes, we all like to eat our favorite foods of the season. This includes pumpkin bread or muffins and all kinds of apple treats. Several years ago, I discussed how I love fruit & herb infused water and included several recipes. We all know we should drink plenty of water. It’s like gas for our cars. Our bodies need it to function, and if we don’t drink enough we can suffer from the symptoms of dehydration. Dehydration can be a major contributing factor to illnesses, causing headaches, digestive problems, obesity and joint pains. By drinking water, you can support your body in improving your complexion, helping your kidneys to function properly, aiding weight loss and maintaining high energy levels. 

Today I’m sharing a simple fall and winter recipe for Apple Cinnamon Water. You just need 2 apples thinly sliced + 4 cinnamon sticks + 8 cups water in a pitcher. Cover and let it infuse for at least 4 hours in the refrigerator.

To prevent the apples browning, I first soak the apple slices in lemon water for about 2 minutes. I also add a little lemon juice to the infused water before adding apple garnish when serving.

As to the type of apples to use, it’s a personal choice. Each type has its own flavor, and this is the season to experiment. Do choose fresh, firm sweet apples. Wash them well. I don’t peel my apples since they are organic. A green apple like Granny Smith can add a wonderful flavor to water. How about a combination of types of apples. Since we’re using 2 apples, try Granny Smith with a sweeter taste of Fuji. It’s a subtle flavor that adds to my fall pleasures.

  1. Ohh! What a brilliant cold drink for this time of year. Anything with cinnamon is a winner in my book. I might have to try this, I am always for the look out for new ways to enjoy water.

  2. That’s good advice Carol. I must admit that I didn’t know drinking water could aid weight loss. As I occasionally suffer from Gout I know the phrase “make water your friend”.

    1. I got this comment – I don’t understand why it wouldn’t let you comment on the ottoman. I’ll check it out.

  3. Unlike most, I love water. I prefer it plain rather than with those little packets my husband adds to his. They leave an after taste.
    But I do like cucumber and/or lemon infused water. They serve those at the spa I like to go to on occassion. This one sounds good as well. Pinned and tweeted.
    Thanks for sharing at #alwcc.

  4. This sounds so tasty & refreshing! Anything to convince me to drink more water!! I know I need to, but it seems so boring on its own. I will definitely have to give this a try and will be pinning it to my food board. I am visiting from Linda’s link-up. Many blessings to you this autumn season!

I love to make new friends and get to know you.
