I drink a lot of water each day (1 - 1.5 gallons), so it's always nice to mix it up with some delicious flavors!  It's well into the 80s here today, so a refreshing combo like this was just the ticket.





Supplies
Apple (I prefer red since they are a bit sweeter)
Cinnamon sticks (I used three)
Water
Ice
Thirsty tummy

Steps
Slice one apple.  Toss into pitcher.

Toss 1 - 3 cinnamon sticks into pitcher.  I used three.

Fill with water.

Top with thick layer of ice.

Refrigerate 30 mins to overnight.  I prefer a stronger flavor, so I usually prepare before bedtime, so I have a fresh pitcher ready the next morning.

I gave mine a bit of a forceful stir with a wooden spoon to pull out some additional flavors from the ingredients.  Pour and serve with ice and apple slices. Smiley
 

I found the original recipe from this site via Pinterest! Smiley  Yummo inspiration!

How strong is the water infused with the apple? Just enough to be tasty or a hint of it that would not really matter? I'm asking because I have seen some of these on Pinterest, and have been interested in the idea because I am trying to find new ideas to ease me into constant water intake. Thanks in advance.

At 30 mins, with 3 sticks and 1 apple, it was a hint of flavor.  It was enough to be able to easily identify the two flavors, but not robust like a tea.  I think an overnight pitcher might be even more tasty.  I also have some cinnamon stevia that I could use to give it even more of a kick.

I just read an article about using essential oils to flavor water this morning - now this is another idea I must try!

oh I gotta try this! I love apples and cinnamon! I would definitely make mine overnight I love stronger flavors.. I've been curious about doing an cinnamon lemon infusing too or maybe mint and lemon it all sounds interesting to me and low cal + refreshing change from the plain old water I always drink and absolutely no weird chemicals!

This sounds yummy. I've been wanting to try infused water this summer but I have yet to find a pitcher at the thrift store. When I do I'll have to give this one a go.

Oh that sounds and looks delicious!

I like drinking water too, lots of juices and sodas are too sweet (at least I think so). And I so don't like the taste of sweeteners (bleh, bad taste) and I also think it is just not healthy!

Anyway, I drink a lot of water with mint, I have some fresh mint growing in my garden. Sometimes mint and lemon, sometimes green ice tea with a little honey and mint.

I am going to try this tomorrow! Well, if I have cinnamon sticks in stock, not sure. Will let you know how it turned out!

Thanks for sharing!  Smiley

A local eatery place does this with their water. They usually have either strawberries or cucumbers in there. I personally prefer getting their free water than a soda or something. I really should start doing this at home more often, too. And you know, I just bought some plants on sale at the Homes Depot and I KNEW I should have gotten some mint. Dang it! Thanks, sweets, for the inspiring motivation!

the apples and cinnamon sounds interesting!  I don't like plain water so i usually have to put lime or cucumbers in it.

What a brilliant idea!  Sooooooo much better then crystal light or other artificial flavorings! Another thing I need to try. Thanks for sharing the inspiration!

Oh my gosh, this sounds delicious! I add fruit to my water all the time, but never thought of this! I have to try this. One of my favorites is Peach Raspberry water with basil, it is unbelievably refreshing! I got the idea from this blog. Let me know if you ever try this one!

Oh Sweets it is delicious! I tried this, after I bought me some cinnamon sticks, and left it for a night in the fridge. My apples turned a bit brown, but the taste was yummy!

So apart from my apples looking less appealing, this is great!

Thanks so much for sharing!  Cheesy

I'm on pitcher#3 of this!  The first time I tried this, I kept topping the water off, and it still pulled a lot of flavour out!  so I don't feel so bad chucking a whole apple, now that they've turned brown.   I might add a bit of honey next go, just to sweeten it a smidge, but over night and it tastes just like fresh apple juice (which tastes WAY different then apple juice in a container, in case you were wondering)
