Homemade Apple pie juice drink with recipe.
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.

Just one more thing....
