Sugar Free Hot Apple Cider Recipe

Nothing spells winter like hot apple cider! Unfortunately, most recipes are sugar-laden. Just a little can totally derail your healthy-eating efforts. Fortunately, my Sugar Free Hot Apple Cider Recipe is a delicious low carb alternative that tastes like the real thing.

Sugar Free Hot Apple Cider Recipe


  • 1 Tbsp *raw* apple cider vinegar
  • 8oz hot filtered water
  • dash of organic stevia (sweetener) to taste (this is the best-tasting one I use that  doesn’t have any fillers: SweefLeaf Organic Stevia Leaf Extract)


  • mulling spices
  • light dusting of cayenne pepper
  • cinnamon stick

Boil water with mulling spices and/or cinnamon stick.

Pour spiced hot water over vinegar directly into your favorite mug.

Add stevia to taste (and, optionally a dusting of cayenne pepper).

Garnish with cinnamon stick if desired.

Cozy up, enjoy, and rest easy knowing your healthy-eating efforts are still on track. Victory!
