As winter gets colder, I'm always looking for new ways to get warmed up. My Apple & Ginger Winter Warmer has never failed me! Learn how to make one, in these few easy steps...
Take seven small to medium apples. A mixed variety is fine.
I used 5 Braebourne and 2 Pink Lady Apples
Wash the apples before cutting them in half then remove the core and seeds (if you have a corer handy, use that instead).
Apples cored and seeded
If the ginger is organic, give it a rinse. If not, peel it's skin. Run the ingredients through a juicer and you should end up with about 500/600ml of fresh juice (that's about a pint or half a litre)
Apples and ginger, juiced
Boil the kettle, fill your mug with hot water and leave to stand.
Pour your fresh juice, into a small saucepan and simmer on a very low heat - Do not boil it!

Once juice is hot - not boiling - discard hot water and pour juice into the mug.

Add a sprinkling of cinmamon on top and enjoy.
A sprinkle of cinnamon...
Apple & Ginger Winter Cooler, sprinkled with ground cinnamon. Delicious!
You may feel an intensely warm sensation within 10 minutes of drinking, as the ginger and cinnamon kick into your system!
