5 minute apple cider for busy moms | recipe

When we woke up the house was crisp so to start the morning off right the boys and I cozied up to a hot mug (and two sippy cups) of hot apple cider. Since none of us have the patience to wait for mama to peel apples and make the “real” stuff, we cheated a little bit, but the result was nice.

What you need:

– about 2-3 cups of apple juice (we used not from concentrate)

– 1 tsp cinnamon

– 1/2 tsp ground cloves

– 1 tsp maple syrup

– half an orange

What you do:

Slice your orange in half and then into thin slices.

Let your little one pour about 2-3 cups of apple juice into small saucepan. Have them add cinnamon, ground cloves, maple syrup and orange slices. Add to medium/high heat and remove once it reaches almost boiling. (Takes about 5 minutes). Pour into mug and sippy cup 1 and sippy cup 2. (Add an icecube to each sippy cup to avoid burning little lips).


P.S. you can get fancy and use real apples, cinnamon sticks and whole ground cloves, but who has time for that in the morning :)
