apple pie and ice cream milkshake

i wasn't sure about this combination!  normally,  i'd rather eat a slice of pie a la mode than have it blended together like a challenge on SURVIVOR!  your taste buds will be shocked and delighted, I KNOW IT!  this is an unbelievable treat you'll never have expected!

  • 1 pint  COCONUT BLISS or SO DELICIOUS vanilla non-dairy dessert (in the freezer section with the healthier "ice cream" options)
  • 1 large apple, cored and cut in chunks
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla powder (easy to find at the health food store, but you can add a tsp. of vanila, or scrape the seeds out of a vanilla bean if you're adventurous and have tons of time!)
  • pinch of nutmeg (i add 2 pinches!)
  • 1 cup of your favorite milk OR if you want to get UBER-healthy about it, 1 cup of REJUVELAC for colon health, easily made at home or purchased, recipe follows...
BLEND EVERYTHING TOGETHER!  i also add a cup of ice, i like it cold!

recipe for REJUVELAC:  can be used for drink recipes, smoothies and 'milk'shakes, or as a 'starter' for nut and seed cheeses, and aids digestion!
    • 1 cup wheat berries, rye berries or quinoa (or a combination of any)
    • 1 quart water for soaking
    • 8-10 cups water

soak the grains for 1 day in 1 quart of water
drain water, pour berries into fine mesh strainer (over a bowl)
rinse berries in cool water up to 7 times a day for up to 3 days until they sprout
put sprouted berries in gallon container, add 8-10 cups water
cover with cheesecloth or gauze, but no lid
let sit 1-3 days, slight foam will develop on top
strain through cheesecloth
lasts 2-3 weeks in glass jars in fridge
