Recipe: Apple Pie Freakshake


So freakshakes are a thing huh? Here's our first take at one. It's apple pie flavoured. Literally... there is basically an apple pie in this shake. Our advice is: 1. Share it 2. One is enough for about 6 months. Don't say we didn't warn you ok?


The Shake

  • 2 cooking apples
  • 2 tbsp soft brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 lemon
  • 350 ml whole milk
  • 8 scoops vanilla ice cream
  • 100 g shortcrust pastry
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder


  • 50 g dulce de leche
  • 200 ml whipped cream
  • 20 g crumbled shortcrust pastry
  • 1 mini apple pie
  • 1 ring doughnut
cook the apples

Step 1

Cook The Apples

Peel and slice the apples into around 2mm slices, cutting around the core. Toss them in the brown sugar. Heat the butter in a frying pan over a medium heat and when it’s bubbling add the apple slices. Cook, stirring every so often until the apple begins to soften and caramelise all over. Add a teaspoon of lemon zest and one squeeze of lemon juice to the pan, then remove from the heat. Transfer the apple to a plate and leave it to cool.
