Apple Pie in a Pan ala mode
Updated: Aug 18
I stole this from an interview that Dr. Joel Fuhrman did where he just rattled it off so I figured out my own portions of the ingredients - so I’m claiming it as my own goddamnit. You’re going to want a high-powered blender for this. It comes together pretty fast and it’s stupid tasty. Our family has this pretty much once a week - it’s something one of us can make while the other is washing the dinner dishes.
1/4 cup water
1/8 cup, chopped Walnuts
1/4 cup, packed currents
2 large apples (or 3 medium) (sliced thin)
1 tsp Cinnamon, ground
2 large bananas (frozen)
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
0.80 oz (10-12 kernels) Macadamia Nuts
Heat up a skillet and toss in the water - it should be sizzling! Now toss in the currents and walnuts. Stir them around for a minute. Now add your apple slices on top and sprinkle with the cinnamon. Add a lid to the top so it can steam and lower the heat a little bit. Leave it sit for 5-8 minutes - you want the apples to get soft. Try not to peak!
While this is happening (told you this shit was fast) add your bananas, vanilla, and macadamia nuts to the blender. Turn that shit on high and start mashing the fuck out of it with your stomper (I assume you’re using a Vita-Mix - if not then do whatever you’re supposed to do when you’re making something like this with it). Get it all mixed together nicely - it should start to slowly churn around. You’re going to have a moment where you think - oh fuck, this shit ain’t blending - but trust me - give it a few more seconds and you’ll start to see it moving around. You know it’s done when there’s four mounds at the top in the corners.
By now your apples should be fucking perfect. Scoop the mixture from the frying pan into your bowls - make sure the currents and walnuts are evenly distributed. You should have a little sauce in the bottom of the pan from the cooking water. Feel free to drizzle that beautiful stuff over the apples. It’s delightful!
Scoop equal amounts of the banana-ice cream on top of the apple mixture. SCRAPE that shit out of the blender - you don’t want to leave any of that goodness behind!
Now eat the hell out of it! It’s so creamy and delicious. I like to mix it all around and coat everything with the ice cream, but you do you.
This all comes together super fast. Get everything ready before.
