Apple Pie Milkshake

Yum


I have been going a little apple crazy this fall.  Every week I buy about 5lbs of apples and munch away with pure joy.  I love crispy and juicy apples.  My favorites are Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, McIntosh, Gala and the list goes on.

Now my kids are not the biggest apple fans and my husband is an occasional apple eater.   I decided to be decadent and entice them my love of apples by making an Apple Pie Milkshake.   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. 

I finally got some apple satisfaction from them...

    1. Oh I see! You make the apple compote first, then make the milkshake! This sounds like a very nice fall milkshake idea. Never thought or imagine that we get to enjoy the apple pie in milkshake form. Thumbs up for the great idea!
