What Does Apple Pie Shake Taste Like

Add crushed cookies and biscuits on top to simulate a pie crust, spoon your favorite luscious syrup along the insides of the glass for that classic milkshake look, and sprinkle the milkshake with decorations that will make your inner child happy. 

Is Apple Pie Smoothie Healthy?

The fresh apples in this apple pie shake are a good source of fiber and antioxidants, while dairy milk is rich in calcium and protein

However, milkshakes are just sippable desserts, and compared to a glass of smoothie made from leafy greens, they can be high in fat and sugar. 

I recommend considering plant-based substitutes to make your homemade apple pie milkshake more wholesome.

For example, you can cut down the calories by using dairy-free milk and vegan ice cream!

And if you want a healthy smoothie but looking for something more exciting than a green smoothie, try our delicious strawberry smoothie bowl. Yep, it’s a smoothie you can eat with a spoon!

This apple pie shake is perfect for those who want an apple pie but don’t have the time and patience to bake the fall dessert.

Ingredients For Apple Pie Milkshake

  • Unsalted butter – Our caramel apple pie sauce is not only sweet but also rich and buttery. 🤤
  • Brown sugar – For making our caramel apple pie sauce.
  • Cinnamon – This gives our apple pie milkshake that familiar warm apple pie flavor. 
  • Salt – To balance the sweetness of the apple pie smoothie. 
  • Heavy cream – Thickens our caramel apple pie sauce.  
  • Vanilla extract – Of course, this sweet, sippable dessert will be incomplete without vanilla extract.
  • Vanilla ice cream – You can also use any ice cream flavor, but vanilla is perfect, especially for those who want to make an over-the-top milkshake loaded with add-ins and toppings.
  • Cold milk – Feel free to use dairy-free substitutes when making this apple pie milkshake recipe!

Vanilla ice cream

This apple pie milkshake is already satisfying with the humble vanilla ice cream. But if you’re like me, who likes her shakes sinfully sweet, you’ll love this recipe with salted caramel ice cream.

Graham cracker crumbs

We used graham cracker toppings as the “crust” on our apple pie smoothie. But another delicious crushed topping you can use is Biscoff because it just goes so well with caramel apples. 😋

Kids and kids at heart will surely enjoy a glass of this decadent apple pie smoothie with fries, onion rings, or mini burgers on the side.

Tips About Making Apple Pie Smoothie

Here are some additional notes for making this easy apple pie milkshake:

  • To dice your apples for the apple pie caramel sauce, start with a stack of apple slices. Then, slice them lengthwise into matchsticks. From there, you only have to cut the matchsticks into small cubes. Easy-peasy!
  • Keep your caramel apple sauce lusciously smooth by stirring it continuously as it cooks! You also don’t want it to burn, so be patient and stir it frequently until the sauce thickens. 
  • Want to thin out your caramel apple sauce? Stir in a teaspoon of cream at a time until you achieve your desired consistency!

The best milkshake is thick, creamy, and free from lumps. This is easy to achieve by using the correct ratio of the ingredients. 

However, it’s also important that your blender can handle the task at hand.

How To Store Apple Pie Milkshake

This apple pie shake is meant to be enjoyed right away.

I don’t recommend storing it in the fridge or freezer because the consistency won’t be the same, and the flavors will just be diluted. It’s super easy to make anyway!

But of course, no one will stop you if you store your leftovers in the fridge. The leftover shake will still taste good, but it’ll be like drinking melted ice cream.

What Is The Secret Ingredient In Milkshake?

The secret ingredient to make your milkshake taste creamy and delicious is…drum roll please…milk powder!

Yup, adding a tablespoon of milk powder can take your milkshake game to the next level.

Because it’s dry, it won’t affect the thick consistency of the shake.

It’s a tasty way to boost the rich, milky flavor of your milkshake instead of watering it down with liquid milk.

What To Do With Leftover Apple Pie?

If you have leftover apple pie, you can use it in this apple pie milkshake recipe instead of making a caramel apple pie filling!

Just blend it with ice cream and milk, and you have a delicious glass of apple pie milkshake ready to be chugged (it’s truly worth the brain freeze! 😅).

Besides shakes, you can also turn your leftover apple pie into cinnamon rolls! Just chop it into small pieces and use it as the filling on your cinnamon roll dough. 

Check out our TikTok cinnamon rolls and strawberry cinnamon rolls that will make you forget about visiting Cinnabon for a while.

Why Put A Raw Egg In Milkshakes?

Yup, you read that right. Some people put raw eggs in their milkshakes! Because raw eggs are rich and fatty, they make the milkshake creamier.

But is the risk of salmonella poisoning worth it just to get that extra froth on your milkshake?

Below, I’ve talked about some ingredients that won’t give you anxiety about food poisoning, so feel free to put down those eggs and use them in our Instant Pot egg bites instead. 😅

And if our talk about raw egg milkshakes got you feeling queasy, here’s a super cute and delicious milkshake recipe to restore your faith in the drinkable dessert.

Why Add Ice Cubes To Milkshake?

Did you know you can fix a runny milkshake by adding ice cubes to the mixture? However, since ice melts, the milkshake will just end up diluted. 

FAQ About Apple Pie Milkshake

Are milkshakes unhealthy?

Milkshakes can be unhealthy because of their high-fat content. But there is no need to panic; just enjoy your milkshake in responsible portions, like with any dessert! 

Why is my milkshake so watery?

Your milkshake can end up watery if you use too much milk. You can quickly fix it by adding more ice cream.

How do you thicken a milkshake?

Besides adding more ice cream, you can thicken your milkshake with crushed ice or simply swap milk with heavy whipping cream. 

How do you thicken a shake without ice?

Ice can melt and ruin the thick consistency we want for our milkshake. I suggest using heavy cream or ice cream to thicken the shake instead. You can also use frozen bananas!

Is it good to drink apple milkshake everyday?

Apple milkshake offers protein, calcium, fiber, and vitamins, but it’s not a good idea to overconsume the delicious treat. Moderation is the key to good health, and it’s better to come up with a shake recipe that will give you your daily needs of essential nutrients.
