Homemade Apple pie juice drink with recipe.

For real?

I know it might sound a little odd, but yes there really is an apple pie drink and it tastes great. Granted it's not as easy as some drinks to make and you drink it warm, however if you're looking for something slightly different, that is a great alternative to a hot caffeine drink in the evening, then this is definitely the drink for you.

It's also not as naughty as it sounds, as although it does contain sugar, it is also packed with fruit and we all know that can only be a good thing.

I will also state it's nutritional value too, as not only does it contain apples this recipe has a bit of a twist. As you can also add blackcurrants and blueberries too, and you can then get an idea of some of it's health benefits as well.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do and I would love to hear what you have to say about it, even if it's just ugh! That sounds weird.

OK, but what does that all mean?

Just one more thing....

In case you were thinking that warm orange juice doesn't actually sound very appealing, it's a lot better tasting then you would initially imagine it to be.

I hope you enjoy apple pie drink and please do rate it and let me know your thoughts.

Thank-you mtsi1098, blackcurrents are what are in ribenna, they are little round dark purple fruit berries. (I don't know if that helps lol) You can also use raspberries or blackberries if you can't get hold of blackcurrents :)
