Ingredients

  • 11.3 oz mango nectar
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 4 cups apple cider
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon apple pie spice
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar packed optional
  • Garnish: orange slices

Instructions

  • Combine all of your ingredients except for your garnish and brown sugar in a 4-quart crock pot (I used Mr. Big, my 4-quart Crock Pot)
  • Cover and cook on low until heated through, stirring occasionally
  • Taste test (after blowing on it to cool it down!), if desired, you can add in the brown sugar and whisk until completely dissolved
  • Serve with a slice of orange
  • Refrigerate leftovers in a covered container for up to 3 days

Notes

  • The slice of orange isn’t just decorative. It is super delicious when you place it in the cider!
  • The recipe that started my journey to creating this recipe called for peach nectar, which I couldn't find. So if you can find peach nectar instead of mango nectar, I need you to do two things for me. 1) Tell me where in the world you found it! 2)Give this recipe a try with peach nectar and tell me what you think!
  • If you want to make it for just your family, then make this yummy cider as stated above. If you want to take this to a party or have it when you have company over, feel free to double or triple the recipe. Just make sure you adjust what size of crock pot you use so it will all fit comfortably!
  • If you have a good, sweet cider, you probably won’t need the brown sugar. However, if you have a cheaper cider that doesn’t have as rich and full flavor (not that I would buy the cheap stuff or anything), the brown sugar will help the flavor pop out.
  • As with any of our recipes, calorie counts and nutritional information varies greatly depending on which products you choose to use when cooking this dish.
  • All slow cookers cook differently, so cooking times are always a basic guideline and should always be tested first in your own slow cooker and time adjusted as needed.
