Raw Apple Cider Recipe – Make it at home without cooking it and without a juicer!
Here’s a recipe we shared on our other blog, Courtney’s Sweets. We love this Apple Cider recipe and not only is it RAW, it’s DELICIOUS. I think it tastes exactly like the stuff you’d buy in a store. The only difference is that you make it at home and it’s not sitting on a shelf. Can’t get any fresher than this. Plus our daughter approves.
HOW TO MAKE RAW APPLE CIDER
The way we make our raw apple cider is pretty simple. We take a bunch of apples, rough chop them, and place into a high speed blender with strawberries and a little water.. Once the apples are fully liquified. You’ll be surprised how delicious this Raw Apple Cider recipe is and how much it tastes just like apple cider you’d buy in the store.
We prefer to make a nutritious and delicious apple cider recipe to enjoy rather than purchasing one from the store. We will occasionally purchase the farm’s apple cider, but mostly to enjoy while we’re there.
We typically go to the farms and pick bags and bags and bags and bags of apples. We pick until we can’t pick anymore. The best part about picking local apples is they are super fresh, packed with nutrients, and even more affordable than the grocery store. Grocery store apples can be pretty old!
Once we get home we like to snack on the apples and use in recipes as well. The key to keeping the apples longer is keeping them in a cooler area of your home. We suggest keeping it in the garage if it’s cooler outside.
This recipe can be made in any blender, but we find that we get the best results with our Vitamix or Blendtec high speed blenders. They are true powerhouses that really liquify ingredients whereas another blender may have a tough time. If you use a traditional blender try to find one that has a tamper. If it isn’t as powerful you may get a little bit more pulp, but you can use a mesh strainer to remove or even a nut milk bag
Best of all this cider is raw and full of all the vitamins that you wouldn’t get in a traditional cider. I get to control all the ingredients, which are all organic of course! We add strawberries for a little sweetness since we always buy more of a tart apple. Even if this juice isn’t your typical cider, it’s just as good if not better in our opinion! 🙂
Raw Apple Cider
- 2 Cups Apples
- 5 Strawberries
- 1 1/2 Cups Water
- Put all the ingredients into your blender (I recommend a Vitamix) and blend for about 2 minutes. Pour into a glass and enjoy.
- Note: When making raw juices it's best to consume within the hour as oxidation occurs and breaks down the nutrients.
