Christmas is near and you have probably already started thinking about the celebration table and all the things you have to cook and prepare.

Well, maybe now it is the right time to detoxify your body so that your skin looks glowing enough for those special days that are coming.

One of the fruits that I always combine with Winter is apples. Lately, I have read that apple juice has a detoxifying function because of its pectin which helps the body get rid of toxins.

So, I tried out three different versions of apple drinks and they tasted delicious.
The first one suggests peeling the skin of two organic apples and putting them in the blender. Empty the content in a big glass and add some warm water. You can give some extra flavor by adding a bit of ginger or cinnamon.

To make an apple tea as the one in this picture that I took, you can add few apple peels to a cup of black, green or yellow tea. For a healthy apple beverage you can boil two apples for 15 minutes, add little cinnamon, very little dried clove and voila..your marvelous hot apple drink is ready!

Apart from the health benefits and the great taste, it will make your house smell fantastic too, take my word for it. 🙂 So, hot apple beverages can be the perfect winter solution to calm down your system and detoxify your body, thus giving your skin that healthy glow you will need for Christmas and New Year’s Eve!

I said New Year’s Eve and I couldn’t help myself but think: “Is Santa coming to town this year?”
