Pardon me if this post is sprinkled with expletives, sighs and bad metaphors. I eventually triumph.
I had this fantastic recipe whirling around my head for days. The ingredients and appliances and pots and pans were lined up.
Each step was executed and my creativity matched my culinary prowess, at least until ...watch out first expletive coming at you. Fudge buckets...now the overused saying....God laughed at my plan. Oh chuckle, snort, bearded magician in the sky.
And yes and now another Expletive..
Apple effing pie ice creme was on it's way to it's execution, and I don't mean me executing the recipe either. I mean the ice creme was on it's way to the electric chair. I was on the way to making you an apple pie ice creme and then the fates turned against me and the ice creme maker freaked out and electrocuted the ice creme.

When in doubt pour everything back into your blender and make apple pie shakes :)
1 pippin apple diced
1/4 C water
1 T cornstarch
2 packets Stevia + 2 T pure maple syrup
Place 1/2 of the apple in a sauce pan. Add 1/8th C water and sweetener. Heat to boil. In a separate cup mix 1/8th of C cold water with cornstarch. Add to hot liquid and simmer about 6-8 minutes. Stir often then let cool completely. This is also a great topping by itself over vanilla ice creme. Once cooled proceed with shake.
1/2 C cream of coconut (place coconut milk in frig over night) then open can and scoop out creme from the top. (you can make whipped creme like that as well)
1.5 C almond milk
4 packets stevia and a 4 T maple syrup
6 oz silken tofu
1/2 brushed with 1 T maple syrup baked spelt vegan pie crust cut up
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp pumpkin spice
3 ice cubes
Pour all ingredients into blender except chopped pie crust. Blend until thick and creamy. Fold in pie crust.
Remember when life gives you a broken ice creme maker stomp your feet, then smile, move on and laugh in the face of adversity.
