The Best Coffee Pairings To Drink With Your Favorite Apple Recipes
The season for picking fresh apples is drawing to a close, but there's still plenty of time to drive down to your local orchard and bring home a bushel of the delicious autumn fruit. Before you even head to the orchard, why not fill up your Mr. Coffee® Brew! Pour! Go! travel mug with a hot drink to keep you warm while searching for the perfect apples.
The Perfect Morning Companion
The old saying says that an apple a day will keep you out of the doctor's office. But did you know that it could also help keep you out of bed? A freshly brewed cup of coffee is the perfect way to start your day, but when combined with an apple, it's unbeatable. Caffeine from the coffee and the carbohydrates and calories from the apple will help you wake up and stay that way. Whereas only drinking coffee might cause you to feel hungry, adding a nutritious apple to the mix will keep your blood sugar levels stable and your mind thinking clearly.
Great For A Lunch Date
If you and your significant other are having a light lunch at home, consider enjoying a dark green salad topped with walnuts, celery and apple slices. Walnuts are full of iron, magnesium and vitamin B-6. Celery is good for your digestive health and is actually one of the few foods with a negative caloric effect. Apples, of course, are a great source of dietary fiber and vitamin C. Use your Mr. Coffee® Steam Espresso & Cappuccino Maker to brew a delicious drink to sip on while enjoying your healthy meal.
The Right Match With Dessert
When it comes to desserts, apples really shine. You can go with the classic apple pie or the delicious apple strudel. Caramel apples and apple parfaits are excellent treats for kids. If you're entertaining many guests, it's easy to bake up a large batch of apple-cinnamon muffins. The list could on but it would be too delicious to read - you'd simply run off to try one of them. If you're dining with only one other person, you might want to pair your apple dessert with a decadent white chocolate latte or a holiday jubilee coffee.
No matter what the time of day, apples and coffee are a winning combination. Try one of these amazing pairings this week.
