Fall recipes are some of my favorite because they are filled with apples, comfort food, and unique flavors. Our Caramel Apple Cider Slushies are simple, delicious, and brighten up fall afternoons. 

In the fall, we have a huge bounty of apples that we make different recipes with.  But most importantly we have an abundance of applesauce and cider that makes us get creative after a few weeks. 

At one of the local U-Pick orchards close to us, they make these amazing apple cider slushes with their fresh apple ciders and every year people are lined up for a little cup of slushie happiness. That’s what gave me the idea to go a step further and create our own recipe using some of our home-canned applesauce and taaa-daa!  We found something extra special! 

What can I do with leftover applesauce?

That’s a question that I ask myself all the time. My family loves freshly made applesauce and it’s so easy to make a big batch ahead of time. So we are always looking for new things to do with leftover applesauce.  Making Caramel Apple Cider Slushies is a good way to rethink applesauce and have your family asking for more. 

By using applesauce, you are getting a thicker texture that’s fruitier and it has a bigger flavor.

What’s in that applesauce?

We love making applesauce.  Our Vanilla Applesauce is great for using those apples that aren’t especially tart, for dishes that you want a nice apple taste without the pucker. 

I like it in this recipe because you are also going to use apple cider and caramel that are both warmer flavors in your mouth and less tart. 

But you can use any apple sauce you have!

I love these canning jar glasses and metal drinking straws.  You can fill them with your favorite drinks, put a canning lid on them, and put them in the refrigerator or freezer to cool ahead of time. 

And we love using washable metal straws that are more environmentally friendly.  Using a metal straw helps reduce your exposure to BPA plastic and plastic in general.

Spiked Apple Cider Slushies

Make it a grown-up drink and add Crown Royal Regal Apple in place of 1 cup apple cider. 

You can also use rum or bourbon.
