Astragalus is a perfect ingredient for this favorite fall treat when the apples are ripe. Autumn weather alternates between hot and cold, so sip this drink slightly chilled on warmer days, or drink it hot in a mug by the fire when the weather is cold. Simply mix all the ingredients together, and enjoy.

Yield: 2 cups


  • 2 cups astragalus tea (2 tablespoons of dried astragalus root steeped in 2 cups of water)
  • 1-1/2 cups apple juice
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • Pinch of allspice


Combine all ingredients in a small bowl, and mix thoroughly. Chill or warm the drink in the fridge or on the stovetop, respectively, then transfer to a glass to enjoy.
