Easy as Apple Pie Milkshake

My Husband loves anything apple pie inspired. His birthday cake is an apple upside down cake, every year! It’s a standing request. I on the other hand will eat pie but only with Ice Cream! I find pies too sweet for my taste but somehow the creaminess of the ice cream dilutes the sharpness.

I was thinking an apple pie is just so much work and so over done especially since you can get those massive Costco sized ones. But again some people love those flavors! So I was mulling over it and thought to try a milkshake out. It is relatively easy to make minus how long the apples may take to cook down.

I used the Pink Lady variety of apple but I assume you could use any that would be good for baking.

Preparation Time – 5 Minutes

Cook Time – 20 Minutes

Serves – 2

Ingredients

Apple – 1 Chopped

Cinnamon – 1/2 Teaspoon

Brown Sugar – 3 Teaspoons

Salt – a small pinch

Butter – 1 Teaspoon

French Vanilla Ice cream – 6 to 7 Scoops

Cold Milk – 1/2 Cup

Graham Crackers – 4 Teaspoons

Directions

Firstly, we are going to cook down the apples. So in a saucepan over medium low heat melt your butter and add your chopped apples, salt and enough water to cover the apples. Bring this to a boil, cover and cook. In five minutes uncover the pan and add cinnamon and brown sugar.

Keep cooking the apples and mash them a little as you stir. Once you reach a thick consistency, keep it aside to cool.

We will now make enough milkshake for one serving. Add 1/4 cup of the apple pie filling, 1/4 cup of milk and 3 scoops of ice cream. Blend till smooth. Take your glass and pour the shake in and then top with a teaspoon or so of crushed graham crackers and a dash of cinnamon. Serve immediately and give it a quick stir to incorporate the cookie crumbs.

This is such a simple recipe and a perfect little treat when you want that pie taste without the pie work. If you would like the shake to be thicker feel free to add more ice cream or reduce the milk content. I hope you enjoy this variation!
