Crazy! I think that is the only word that can describe the weather this year. It's August and it is already beginning to feel like fall - which is a good thing since apples are ready for picking. Eckert's really is one of my kids favorite places to go - when asked what they want to do, Eckert's always tops the charts. So of course, we have already been apple picking. We picked a bunch of honeycrisp apples (my all time favorite) - I just love them for fresh eating, but my kids insisted on making something with them. Most of my apple recipes felt too hearty for August - so we settled on trying an apple smoothie. Two thumbs up from both girls!
1/2 cup Eckert's Apple Cider
2 scoops (about 1/4 cup each) Eckert's Vanilla Custard
1/2 large unpeeled, cored and chopped apple
2 tsp Eckert's Honey
Blend together in a Bullet. Pour into a glass & enjoy!
