Apple Pie Milkshake

by Alli

Apple Pie Milkshake is the best of both worlds – apple pie and a milkshake – a marriage made in heaven.

When I think about apple pie, I think about all things fall and Thanksgiving. Milkshakes, on the other hand, remind me of a hot summer day. Since I live in the south and fall is seldom very cold, this is the perfect fall or summer drink. 

 An Apple Pie Milkshake is so easy to make. All you need to a premade apple pie, vanilla ice cream, milk and a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg. 

Milkshake made with apple pie

As American As Apple Pie 

We’ve all heard the above slogan numerous times. So, I researched and found out that neither apples nor apple pie originated in America. Apples are native to Asia and the early colonists of Jamestown brought apple seedlings and cuttings from European trees. 

I read somewhere that the first written apple pie recipe can be traced back to 1381. It included raisins, pears, and figs in addition to the apples. And, it contained no sugar. Doesn’t sound very appealing to me.

I like the modern-day version of apple pie and it flavors a milkshake wonderfully.

Apple Pie Milkshake Is A Special Occasion Shake

For me, this is a special occasion dessert shake. It’s not an everyday event. Sometimes, I’ll use a smaller slice of pie, reduced fat ice cream, and low-fat milk or almond milk. It’s not as decadent, but it works.

You’ll need a slice of apple pie for each shake. For this recipe, I bake Mrs. Smith’s Dutch Apple Pie according to the directions on the package. Let cool completely.

To make one shake, place a slice of apple pie in a blender with three scoops vanilla ice cream (about 3/4 cup of ice cream). Add 1/4 cup milk, two dashes of cinnamon and one dash of nutmeg. Blend together until creamy.

If the milkshake is too thin, add more ice cream. If it’s too thick, add more milk. You can top the milkshake with whipped cream if desired.

This is the most perfect summer to ease into fall from summer. While it’s still a bit warm out, but you’re getting the yummy flavors of fall in a nice cool drink. Two seasons, one killer milkshake!

Every time I see a recipe for apple pie, it always reminds me of my grandmother. She loved baking fresh apple pies, cobblers, or make other desserts. They had several apple and peach trees so every summer she would pick them off the tree to make fresh treats. It’s been so long since I’ve made any pies. I don’t indulge in pies very often because there is usually too much crust and not enough filling for my liking. But the apple pie and milkshake sounds like a match made in heaven.

What a clever idea! Hot apple pie a la mode usually ends up a sloppy mess on your plate anyway. Might as well start out in a glass!
