Apple Pie Milk Shake
Last week when I canned apples, I had extra cooked apples because I ran out of jars. I decided to make a delicious Fall treat with the extras and came up with this milk shake recipe.
1 cup vanilla almond milk
1 cup canned apples (can be plain, cinnamon or spiced)
10 scoops vanilla ice cream
1/4 tsp apple pie spice
Pour 1 cup almond milk into blender pitcher, add apples until milk and apples reach the "2-cup" level. Then add ice cream and pie spice. Blend for about 10 seconds. Makes approx 4 cups.
If you don't have canned apples, canned pears will work just as well. You can also peel, core & halve apples and cook in a little water until soft.
Apple pie spice:
1/4 cup ground cinnamon
1 Tbsp ground allspice
2 tsp ground nutmeg
2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground cardamom (optional)
Mix all ingredients well and store in air-tight jar.
