This refreshing Caramel Apple Shake is made with apple cider, vanilla ice cream and caramel!
This last weekend we went to Apple Hill. I was dying to go! I had been craving some serious apple cider for weeks and I knew where to go to get the good stuff. We stuffed our faces full of all kinds of crazy apple goodness including apple cider donuts with a new topping this year….caramel! Who woulda thunk? Oh the fudge that I ate…and don’t even remotely regret…SO good!
A new apple treat that I enjoyed at High Hill Ranch in Apple Hill was a Caramel Apple Shake. I knew IMMEDIATELY, like as soon as this concoction hit my lips, that I would be making this at home.
If you try no other recipe of mine (and shame on you if you don’t!) – please, pretty please, try this one! I can’t even describe how delicious and refreshing this shake is. And don’t you even think about making it with apple juice! I’m sure it would be good – but not nearly as good as with apple cider so get the good stuff – please :)
There is nothing quite like the concentrated apple flavor you get in apple cider and that’s what takes this recipe totally over the top. Use some good quality caramel ice cream topping and finish it off with some whipped cream and you will have yourself one heck of a shake on your hands.
I could hardly keep Bryce out of the frame when I was trying to take the shots. We only bought one shake at High Hill Ranch and it was mostly consumed by the boys. Bryce was so excited to be enjoying one of these babies while Reece was at school.
Then he totally pulled a Trish and leaned over into the shake getting whipped cream and caramel all over his chest. Hey! Could’ve been worse – he could have been wearing clothes…
Clearly there was an easy fix for this little mishap and yes, it involves a tongue.
- 8 oz apple cider (NOT apple juice)
- 3 scoops vanilla ice cream
- 1-2 Tbls caramel topping
