Pie Smoothie

I'll be the first to admit I didn't come up with this idea. I stole it from a regional chain that specializes in pies.

A pie smoothie is made exactly as it sounds--with milk, ice cream, and a slice of pie, all blended together until it's smooth.

It sounds a little strange, possibly even gross to some, but it is delicious. I made a pie smoothie at home and was extremely impressed with the results. I used vanilla ice cream and a triple berry pie.

The berries in the pie gave the smoothie a nice, fruity flavor. The crust and crumb topping of the pie, when blended, gave the smoothie a wonderfully creamy, thick texture.

The only downside is it's a little bit rich, and is on the Frappuccino side of caloric count.

Pie smoothie - serves 2
2 large scoops vanilla ice cream
1 cup milk
1 slice of pie, your favorite flavor (I suggest berry pies)
blend all ingredients until smooth. Add more milk if needed.

This is EPIC.

It must be made.

That is all.

I'd love to know how this turns out for you, if you do any variations.

Oh, and a note: It's very rich, so lends itself well to sharing.
