Apple Pie Ala’ Mode anyone? I myself am not a fan of apple pie though I do like all the stuff that goes into it. Apples, good. Pie crust (gf, of course), good. Ice cream, good. The gooey slimy, sugary fruit, however, is just not that appealing to me but a thought came to mind. What if I had creamy wonderful apple pie ice cream? Turns out it is wonderful.
This apple pie ice cream is creamy and spiced as pies should be with the freshness of apples and bits of “pie crust”. And better yet, you won’t leave the table feeling like you have to run a marathon to work it off. This apple pie ice cream is a bowl-O-wholesome goodness, perfect for a warm Fall day.
Apple Pie Ice Cream (vegan, gf)
- 3 apples (I used Envy apples)
- 1 large ripe banana (or 2 small)
- 1 can light coconut milk
- 1t apple pie spice (see substitution note)
- 1/2c water or non-dairy milk
- 4 cookie dough bites torn into smaller bits (omit the candy corn in the recipe)
Reserve half of one apple, with peel removed, and chop into tiny pieces. In a high powered blender, blend all of your ingredients except for the apple pieces and cookie dough bites.
When your mixture is smooth, pour into your ice cream maker and let it run for 20 minutes. After 15 minutes has passed add in your apple pieces and little bits of the cookie dough bites.
