This naturally sweetened apple juice reduction is a great alternative to sugar in no-sugar-added dessert recipes. It also makes the perfect pairing with ice cream, overnight oats, crepes, or pancakes.


  • 1 liter freshly made apple juice
  • 1 pinch of ground cinnamon

* If needed, please refer to Baking Conversion Charts.


  1. Pour freshly made apple juice into a heavy-bottomed saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Let it boil for about 45 minutes.
  2. Stir it regularly, but after the first 25 minutes of cooking, keep an eye on the saucepan to ensure the apple preparation doesn't burn: continue stirring constantly.
  3. Cook until the juice takes on a nice syrupy consistency and has reduced to approximately 2/3 cup or 200 grams. Add a pinch of ground cinnamon if desired and mix. Let it cool.


  1. Replace homemade apple juice with a store-bought unfiltered apple juice with no added sugar.
  2. Store the apple juice reduction in a mason jar in the fridge for up to 5 days.
