Hot Spiced Apple Cider

by Erin @ Food Doodles on October 18, 2020

This hot spiced apple cider uses apple cider or apple juice for a healthy, spicy and easy drink that’s perfect for Thanksgiving or Christmas. This recipe is naturally paleo with a vegan option.

During the holidays, or really any type of get together, I always forget about drinks until the last minute. If you’re like me and need something quick (or even if you plan well ahead), then this is perfect! By the way, it makes the house smell amazing

Hot Spiced Apple Cider
It’s so simple but so delicious to warm up with a small mug of this.  It can be fairly strong stuff, so a small serving is just right, or you can water it down slightly.

This recipe calls for orange skin. When I have navel oranges, I use a vegetable peeler to peel them before I remove the white pith and enjoy my orange.
