About a mile from my house is a wonderful apple orchard. There you can pick your own apples and pumpkins or buy them directly from their “barn” shop. You can watch them make apple cider too, which was always a huge hit with my kids when they were small. They sell apple cider by the half gallon and the gallon and my kids adore it.
They also offer a seasonal treat – apple cider shakes. I asked them what was in it and they said soft serve vanilla ice cream, apple cider and cinnamon. Well heck, not to take any glory away from them or anything, but I can do that!
As I type I can hear my daughter slurping the last of the shake you see in the picture. She’s an apple cider shake fanatic. :) These are fantabulous (um, that’s a word? Blogger didn’t correct it LOL) and you really must try them!
Apple Cider Milkshake
5 scoops of vanilla ice cream
1 1/4 cups apple cider
1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
Place everything in a blender and blend into a shake. Insert straw, slurp.
You can of course adjust to your own tastes, but we think these are fabulous as they are. This concoction makes a full glass like you see here and another smaller glass. Sorry, no technical measurements available, they aren’t around long enough!
