Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Winter storms have you feeling blue? Cozy up to this warming winter cider! Not only is this recipe quick and simple, but it’s also filled with anti-inflammatory compounds (goodbye winter cold!). Lower in sugar than classic ciders, this alcohol-free drink is perfect for those lazy Sundays when you’re bundled up on the couch all day.
