With just 5 ingredients and 2 minutes of hand’s on time, this easy Slow Cooker Cranberry Apple Cider tastes great and makes your house smell amazing!
Slow Cooker Cranberry Apple Cider is THE beverage for the holidays.
It’s warm and fragrant, simple yet delicious, and perfectly sweet. It’s Christmas Morning in a cup.
It’s perfect for brunch or for sitting around a crackling fire with your family. Noting is cozier on a cold winter day!
Just pour five ingredients into a slow cooker and guests can help themselves. Nothing could be easier!
Float some cut up apples, fresh cranberries, and cinnamon sticks on top for a colorful, festive touch.
Look for unsweetened apple juice. For the cranberry juice, you’ll get a prettier color but a lot more sugar if you use Cranberry Juice Cocktail. 100% Cranberry Juice is not as sweet but still tastes great.
Speaking of sugar, please feel free to use less than the 2 cups I have listed. Add sugar to taste if you have any concerns on that front! (Please see recipe notes for sugar substitute options).
