Nutritionist Cynthia Sass shares her trick for turning an apple into an edible cup for hot or cold apple cider (or an apple cider cocktail) in just three easy steps.
What You'll Need:
- Paring knife
- Melon baller
- Cutting board
How To Make Apple Cups
1. Turn the apple on its side and cut off the top.
2. Using a paring knife, cut a ¼-inch rim all the way around the apple — this doesn't need to be very deep.
3. Take a melon baller and scoop out the center of the apple until you have a cup.
Fill with cider, pop in a cinnamon stick, serve and enjoy!
"And then when you're done drinking, just bite right into it," Cynthia says about the edible apple cups.
Pro Tip: You can fill these apple cups with pretty much anything — you don't have to stop at cider! Take inspiration from Rachael's Cheesy Stuffed Apples or Dr. Ian's Healthy Baked Apples With Cinnamon, Oats & Pecans.
