Maple Apple Butter Milkshakes
Just a blended mixture of Maple Cheesecake ice cream, milk, vanilla, and apple butter makes a simple and delicious milkshake for the fall.
Say hello to your little friend…AKA the new and best milkshake that has ever entered your life.
I whipped this up the other day when I realized that I had all of this leftover apple butter that I had made and didn’t want to see it just rotting away in my ‘fridge after all the hard work I put into it. There is only so much one can take of apple butter spread on crackers with cheese on top – and don’t get me wrong, that is a fabulous way to enjoy apple butter, but I need variety in my life as I’m sure you do, too. That’s where this milkshake comes in.
Perry’s Ice Cream sent me one of their brand new fall flavors for 2014 as I am part of their “Inside Scoopers” program (isn’t that such a fun name?). That flavor being this delicious Premium Maple Cheesecake ice cream that I used in these milkshakes. The Inside Scoopers program entitles me to early access of Perry’s new flavors and so much more – it’s pretty much the best! I’m proud to help get the word out on such a great company and great product. They are one of the largest ice cream producers in New York State and has always been a favorite of mine and my whole family since I was a kid. I am SO loving this new flavor – the graham cracker crumbs and maple syrup combined with the cheesecake flavor ice cream was just heaven in a bowl. I’m addicted to it!
I posted about this apple butter recipe a couple of weeks ago. If you missed it, or even if you didn’t, it’s definitely worth the revisit. It’s really good stuff. It was so, so, SO easy to make – it just takes a bit of time – and it’s so versatile. There’s no actual butter in it, it’s just a “carmel-ey” apple spread that you can I’m sure find many uses for this fall. Definitely check it out! Oh, and make these milkshakes with it when you’re done.
