BF Hydration: The Green Apple

But first…have you checked the Bariatric Foodie Pledge Halftime Report? If you THINK you are in the running for the grand prize, you want to check it to make sure you’re on MY list. Go do it!

This drink does not have protein. But then, all our drinks don’t have to! In the cold weather especially, a good low-cal drink that helps you get that water in is worth it’s weight in GOLD!

So here’s a warm, comforting drink I came up with because I got bored with what I was drinking before. Give it a try, if you’ve got the ingredients.

Nik’s Green Apple Hot Drink


  • 10-12 oz boiling water (depending on your cup size)
  • 1 packet of green tea of your choice
  • 1 packet sugar-free apple cider mix
  • Optional: no-calorie sweetener (I didn’t use any)
Steep tea bag in boiling water for a minute or two, then remove.
Add cider mix then stir thoroughly and enjoy!

I find the tea calms down the tartness and sweetness of the cider mix. It’s a nice little drink to have in your back pocket when you need it, y’know?

What do you drink when the weather turns cold?


  1. I LOVE Crio Bru….it's essentially brewed cocoa beans, and if you add a little SF Torani syrup? Really good.

  2. Decaf coffee mixed with FF coffeemate.

  3. doesn't green tea have caffeine!

  4. Deb, a small amount yes. But then so does so-called decaffeinated coffee! (Most decaf coffee is about 97% decaffeinated, true fact.) But in general the lighter the tea, the less caffeine and green tea does not have a lot. So white tea would have the least, then green, then the darker caffeinated teas. Herbal teas are caffeine free.

    A neat trick to rid your tea of the caffeine. Tea bags release their caffeine in the first 3-5 seconds of steeping. So if you steep your teabag in just a few tablespoons of boiling water for that long, then toss the water and refill your cup, your tea is as decaffeinated as any other commercial decaf tea.

    🙂 Hope that helps!

  5. wow that is a great tip the decaffeinated tea is so expensive and never goes on sale. i have tried many brands but i am a tetly girl. thanks nicky from canada.

  6. This is delice! I used my k cups , brewed green tea then the apple cider.
