Apple Pie Ice Cream

Capture the classic American comfort food in this mouth-watering ice cream. An optional banana gives the recipe extra sweetness.


  • 90 g (3 ounces) frozen apple juice concentrate
  • 60 g (¼ cup) reduced-fat vanilla yoghurt
  • ½ apple, seeded, cored
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla essence, optional
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ banana, peeled
  • 390 g (3 cups) ice cubes


  1. Place all ingredients into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure lid.
  2. Select Variable 1.
  3. Turn machine on and slowly increase speed to Variable 10, then to High. Use the tamper to press ingredients into the blades while processing.
  4. In about 30 seconds, the sound of the motor will change and four mounds should form in the mixture. Stop machine. Do not over mix or melting will occur. Serve immediately.


If mixture has the consistency of a milkshake, firm it up by slowly adding another cup of frozen ice cubes. Process until smooth.
