I had to come back here to say "Thanks for posting this!" I've been drinking it for the better part of a week now. I'm finally off the plateau I've been stuck on for about three weeks (could be the water, could be coincidence but I'm not going to complain either way) and I love the change from plain water.

I know they also make special pitchers for people who like to infuse their water so you can keep your infusing ingredients in a separate from the water. I bet they would work great for this, especially for people (like myself) who might be worried about apple particulate.

I used a nice firm type of apple. Right now it's Kiku but Cameo, Pink Lady, Honey Crisp, or Granny Smith are others I would consider using. I'd avoid Gala like the plague because they're so mushy to begin with, but then again I always avoid Gala like the plague because I hate their texture. Anyway, nice firm apples directly in the pitcher and then every time I poured a glass, I'd refill the pitcher with an equal amount of ice and water so that it never emptied out. I kept that pitcher going for about 5 days, then dumped it all and started with fresh. I never had any particulate in the water, but those pitchers could be handy if the thought of something in your water really icks you out.

I think eating the apple is a better idea. Drinking the water plain may not please your taste buds as much, but promoting it as a "detox" is silly.

While the "detox" part of it I don't think really matters (your liver and kidneys do all of the detoxing your body really needs), it is a FANTASTIC way to get people to drink MORE water, which is very necessary for promoting better bowels and easing water retention. It sounds delicious!

Following you on pinterest - runningbelle is my username. Thanks for the tip! I'm curious if this would work with powdered cinnamon or only the cinnamon sticks. I don't have any sticks on hand, so I'm considering trying the powder. hehehe.

I have been drinking this water for about 2 months and I love it!! I actually use an infuser pitcher and love it as well. I have noticed I don't feel as bloated and have more energy. I usually drink at least 3 large glasses a day. I have also made cucumber mint water and some berry infused water, but the apple cinnamon is my favorite so far!!

Also, I LOVE apple cinnamon water. It's delicious. The other amazingly awesome thing is tea. Herbal teas are awesome. I buy the campe (or something like that) tea from Davids Tea and make a huge batch. It's calorie free, sweet, and tart. I love it. It needs no sweetner. You can also buy great green teas that have dried fruit in them to make your own flavoured water. Make sure you buy a very light green tea though else it's not good chilled.

Thanks for posting, I'll have to try it :)

It's not to replace a meal, am I correct? Just drink it as you'd drink your water?

Sounds delicious!

I have been drinking this for a week. I love it and my weight stopped fluctuating so much. I also lost a couple more pounds this week.
