Happy Blogmas Beautiful Souls!
Welcome back to the 25 days of Blogmas 2017 – Day 7!
During the holiday season this year, and in the spirit of giving, Educating Earthlings is rolling out a huge Blogmas Giveaway focusing on wellness and vegan lifestyle!
Blogmas is an internet holiday where bloggers and YouTubers (vlogmas) create holiday content or blog daily. Most of us even host giveaways! I’ve hopped on the wagon this year and am so excited to be offering a HUGE Blogmas Giveaway Bundle for you beautiful humans! Use the button below (or click here) to enter the giveaway – good luck!
On to the recipe!
I’m currently sitting here in my living room writing this post for Blogmas and I’m feeling a little uninspired. I love being real with you guys and sharing exactly what’s on my mind, so there you have it!
I wanted to come up with some good storytelling for this Cranberry Apple Cider recipe (like some cute Christmas story from my childhood) but I’m just having a block in my brain right now!
What I can preach to you right now is all things wellness! And this Cranberry Apple Cider recipe is probably the best sugar-free holiday drink you can whip up!
Cranberry Apple Cider with Cinnamon
Heck yes you can make this in a crockpot! All you need for this recipe is some apples, a bag of cranberries (best of they are in season – aka holiday season!), and a cinnamon stick (or two)!
Roughly chop the apples and toss them in the crockpot along with the cranberries straight from the bag. Add one cinnamon stick for a little flavor or add two if you are cinnamon obsessed. Fill the rest of your crock pot with water and turn that baby on high!
Let the fruits ‘steep’ in the crockpot for at least 4 hours or until you see a bold pink/red color in the water. Drink warm or chilled over ice! Even add a splash of gin to better tolerate those holiday crazies in your family 😉
Pro Tip: Save the cooked fruit in your blender and make some cranberry applesauce!
