Apple Pie Milkshake

Apple Pie Milkshakes are reminiscent of the favorite holiday pie and ice cream, with a twist. Use pre-made apple pie and creamy vanilla bean ice cream to create an easy and delicious frozen treat, perfect for Summer and Fourth of July celebrations!

Good food, family, friends and fireworks always made it a special day. We have apple pie on the Fourth, and of course vanilla ice cream to top it with, so I thought that would be the perfect combination for an easy and delicious milkshake.

Our Fourth of July celebration always consisted of grilling, swimming in the pool, and lot (and lots and lots) of fireworks. We had so many fireworks that a large table was set up to display and organize them all. The fathers in our cul-de-sac went all-out every year. We set up lawn chairs in our driveway to watch the show. My mom even grew an aloe plant just for our Fourth of July celebrations, in case anyone got burned from a sparkler or firework.

One year, we had a rogue firework that, when lit, flew sideways and onto the firework staging table. I have never seen the Dads move so fast in my entire life. They all lunged for the table, knocking off the bad firework, so we didn't accidentally light everything on fire. I have such fun memories of Fourth of July with my family and our friends, and cannot wait to share the fun with my toddler too.

Apple Pie Milkshakes are also an excellent way to use up any leftover apple pie after your festivities too. Make the milkshakes extra festive by adding graham cracker crumbs on the rim, whipped cream, fun straws and patriotic sprinkles. I hope you and your family have a wonderful, and safe, Fourth of July. Enjoy some Apple Pie Milkshake!
