Overnight Apple Cider Sangria Recipe Fit for Thanksgiving

We get it, being the host for the holidays can be overwhelming! Preparing the house and food can be a lot to juggle. So, here’s an Apple Cider Sangria recipe to make sure at least one thing goes right.  

This recipe is easy to throw together the night before and perfect for autumn holidays because of its cozy warm flavors. Before serving, simply pour in the ginger ale or ginger beer and give it a stir. Your guests can help themselves to your delicious fall sangria and enjoy appetizers. 

How to Keep the Added Sugar to a Minimum

This Apple Cider Sangria isn’t sugar-free but with the chosen ingredients, we were able to keep the amount of added sugar to a minimum. Instead of adding in table sugar, we used our sugar-free sweetener SweetenFX, which is our proprietary blend of Stevia and Erythritol. This sweetener is our go-to sugar replacer since the ratios and volume are around the same as regular table sugar. 

SweetenFX is a sugar substitute without any calories or carbs. Plus its is just as sweet as regular sugar!

The Trick for a Bold Apple Flavor

Organic flavor extracts are the perfect ingredient to have when you’re in a pinch. By using our Red Apple Flavor Extract, you can make sure the apple flavor doesn’t get lost in the mix with just a few drops. For this recipe, we recommend starting with 1/2 tsp of flavor extract. If you feel it needs more flavor, add in 1/4 tsp more!

Recipe Breakdown

We’ll begin with 2 ½ cups of of milk. We used almond milk but feel free to use any milk or milk alternative you’d like. Soy, rice, hemp, oat, banana, the possibilities are endless! We found that using 2 ½ cups of almond milk gave us the best consistency in the end.

We then added ½ cup of chia seeds into the almond milk. Remember to stir using a whisk! You want to make sure that the chia seeds are fully incorporated into the milk.

After you’ve mixed the milk and chia seeds together, add in ½ teaspoon of Nature’s Flavors Pumpkin Pie concentrate. A little goes a VERY long way! We recommend starting with smaller quantities because you can always add more.

Once you’ve mixed all of your ingredients together, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator to set. Allow the chia seeds to soak for 4-5 hours. It’s crucial you use a sweetener with this recipe because the sweetener is what will tie all of these delicious flavors together. We used agave but you can use any sweetener you’d like!
