Hello, friends! It’s me, Allie! As you may remember from my last post, I’m currently recuperating my heiny off after a little surgical thingy. Fun times.
I put a call out a week or two prior, looking for guest posters, and Rachel was ON IT! I’m so pleased that she was willing and eager to help me out in this way. She’s such a sweetie! And I just adore her photos! Prepare to have your socks rocked off with this fabulous treat Rachel made for us!
Happy National Caramel Apple Day!
I LOVE Fall! As a teacher, I enjoy back-to-school, but now that time of year is done. We are settled into our school routines and the crisp nights of fall have arrived. There is something wonderful about the fresh air and climate changes which take place here in the northeast.
October has the distinct privilege of being national caramel AND national apple month. In addition to having a whole month dedicated to these perfect fall items, October 21 is national caramel apple day!
Today is the perfect day to enjoy these shakes, but they will serve you well anytime this fall. So, when you are done apple picking, or haunted housing, or pumpkin carving, or jumping in the leaves, or trick-or-treating, or making your way out of a corn maze or done carving a turkey – you are going to need a delicious snack!
With just a few fall kitchen staples, this thick and creamy milkshake is literally just minutes away. You can even go healthy by using frozen yogurt (store bought or freeze regular yogurt in cubes) OR indulge a little bit by using vanilla ice cream. I promise that you that you won’t be disappointed with this shake. It has that great “fall taste” that you are looking for this time of year!
Am I right or am I right? Have your socks been properly rocked or what? Can you even get over that last pic with the vintage blender? I KNOW! Now get on over to Rachel’s blog, Teacher by Day, Chef by Night, and see all the other fabulous things girlfriend’s been whipping up. And don’t forget to follow her on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest!

- Add 1 tablespoon of caramel sauce into each glass and swirl around.
- Add half of the remaining apple (this will require you using a spoon for the shake, skip this if you want to skip the spoon) at the bottom of the glass, then pour the shake.
- Top with whipped cream and remaining apple chunks.
