I love Apple Cider! Nothing says Fall like hot apple cider; nothing! The only thing I don’t love about apple cider is the high sugar content. As you know, I try to stay sugar-free by using stevia as much as possible. Sugar is a no-no when it comes to weight loss, energy, and luminous skin. My skin is always 100% clearer and more vibrant when I am steering clear of excess sugar.

This recipe is so simple and tastes exactly like real mulled apple cider! It’s the perfect Halloween drink to serve for the health-conscious guest. Sugar-free Apple Cider that is calorie-free and tastes just like the real thing; what more can you ask for?
