This apple winter warmer is sweet from the apples, slightly savoury from the turmeric and has a warming kick from the ginger and cardamom spice.
Make sure to make the green tea first rather than leaving the tea bag with the spices to stew for too long, it will make the tea taste bitter. Replace the green tea with mint tea if you would prefer something decaffeinated.
If juicing you will need 4-6 apples depending on their size.
Method for Apple Winter Warmer:
- Break the cinnamon sticks in half and lightly crush the cardamom pods.
- Place all the ingredients in a pan bring to the boil then turn off the heat and allow the spices to steep for at least 5 minutes. If using fresh juice it may look like the apple juice has separated, this is normal and will be fine once stirred.
- Serve immediately with a slice of two of fresh apple or cool and put in the fridge for up to 3 days . The longer the juice is left with the spices the stronger the flavour will be. It will last longer if you’re using pasteurised juice. Make a larger batch, steep overnight in the fridge, strain the next day then reheat as necessary.
