Here’s how to prepare the zero-calorie drink recipe:
- 1 Apple
- 1 cinnamon stick (optionally you can use 1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder)
- 6 – 8 cups (1.5 – 2 liters) of filtered water
At first, you should grab the apple and slice it into regular pieces. Next, take an empty pitcher and add the apple slices in there. Afterward, add the cinnamon stick (or powder) over the apples.
Now start boiling the tap water and wait once it’s cooled down so you can pour it into the pitcher over the ingredients. Stir the mixture and leave it for about one or two hours.
Take a few glasses of this juice during different periods of the day and speed up your metabolism.
