Apple Pie Milkshake

I think this week is going to have a small theme of using up leftovers. Here's another round 2 recipe from leftovers I had after making my Apple Pie Compote (Pancake Topping).  I had about a cup of compote left and my kids didn't want to eat pancakes again (**I think I have spoiled them with all these different dishes**).    So I had to come up with plan to use this compote up in a new way.  I decided to be decadent by making these milkshakes and they were doing the happy dance that I did.  Actually, my husband was doing the biggest happy dance since he got this milkshake from the above photo as soon as I finished taking my pictures.  He loved it so much, I heard him slurping the last drops of milkshake with his straw minutes later.  So, there you go, another recipe makeover that was as much loved as the original recipe.  I love when that happens. :)

For the apple-maple compote (makes about 2-3 cups):
5-6 golden delicious apples (peeled, cored and sliced)
3 Tbs butter
1-2 tsp ground cinnamon (to taste)
1/2 to 1 tsp ground ginger (to taste)
pinch of salt
1 cup maple syrup

For the milkshake
2 cups vanilla ice cream
2 cups milk (2 % is fine)
1 cup apple-maple compote

Whipped Cream
dusting of powdered cinnamon


Peel, core and slice apples. Add to a skillet with butter and salt.  Saute for 3-4 minutes.  Next add cinnamon, ginger and maple syrup.  Lower heat to medium-low and simmer on stove for 5 minutes. Cook apples to your desired tenderness.

Place all the ingredients for the milkshake in a blender and blend until smooth.  Serves 2-3 people.  Enjoy.
