Apple Pie Shake

apple pie shakeWeeds and wild flowers – they’re everywhere!  Some consider them a pest especially when trying to keep them out of your lawn.  Our back yard overlooks a small field and as you can imagine, full of weeds and wild flowers.

  I have absolutely no patience for weeds and I think they know that.  All you have to do is look at our back lawn and grin.  I do, however, like looking out past our yard and see daisies being pushed around by the wind, thistles with their lovely purple tops, and yellow flowers from stubby plants.  There’s one plant that towers over most of the wild flowers…Queen Anne’s Lace. The flowers grow in flat clusters and resemble that of fine lace.  The flowers are so pretty I brought them in for display and used them as a backdrop for my apple pie shake.  We’ve all had a milkshake at least once in our life but I’ll bet you’ve never had an apple pie shake!  Once you’ve tasted it you’ll want to experiment with your other favorite pies.

Queen Anne's Lace
I like making pies but when there’s only two, it’s difficult to finish the pie before it starts to go off.  This recipe makes good use for any leftover pie.

Serves 4
4 scoops of frozen vanilla yogurt or ice cream
1 to 2 apple pie slices (homemade or store bought)
up to 1/4 cup of milk (adjust according to desired thickness)
ground cinnamon
whipped cream, for topping (optional)

Place frozen yogurt, apple pie slices and milk in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into glasses, top with a dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkling of cinnamon. Slurp back or use a straw.

The Culinary Chase’s Note:
   Experiment by using lemon meringue pie. Enjoy!

About Heather Chase

The Culinary Chase was coined by my husband whilst in a coffee shop in Hong Kong back in 2006. We wanted something that would be a play on my last name and by the time we finished our coffee, the name was born. As long as I can remember I’ve enjoyed cooking. It wasn’t until we moved to Asia that I began to experiment using herbs and spices in my everyday cooking. Not only do they enhance the flavor of food but also heighten it nutritionally. Over the years, I began to change our diet to include more vegetables, pulses, whole grains and less red meat. Don’t get me wrong, we love our meat, just not in super-size portions (too hard for the body to digest). I always use the palm of my hand as a guide to portion control when eating red meat. If the meat is larger than my hand, I save that portion for another day. Also, if the veggies on your plate look colorful (think the colors of the rainbow) – red, green, yellow, orange etc. then you’re most likely getting the right amount of nutrients per meal. I post recipes that I think help maintain a healthy body. I use the 80/20 rule – 80% of the time I make a conscious effort to eat healthy and 20% for when I want french fries with gravy (poutine). Balance is the key and to enjoy life with whatever comes my way. Thanks for visiting!
