Customize Your Apple Cider
The types of apples that you use for the recipe are up to you – we recommend experimenting with granny smith apples, honeycrisp, pink lady, or other varieties. As always, we encourage you to experiment and make your own unique custom flavor – we recommend trying blueberry, cranberry, or reference The Juicing Companion for more flavor pairing ideas.
Depending on the severity of your sweet tooth, you may also want to try adding your favorite sweetener. We recommend brown sugar, which goes amazingly well with apple and cinnamon (think apple pie), but honey and maple syrup are great options too.
The beauty of making your own fresh juice is that you can add in any ingredients to satisfy your taste – just another reason why we love juicing at Goodnature!
