Disneyland Apple Freeze Copycat

Disneyland apple freeze drink is a popular refreshing drink people love to indulge in when they’re visiting the park. I completely understand why! Who doesn’t love slushes? Who doesn’t love slushes that taste like caramel apples?!

Disneyland’s apple freeze comes with a sweet slushy bottom and a tropical whipped topping. I’ve really only seen one copycat recipe floating from a fellow food blogger (and the others copied their recipe) and its probably a delicious recipe! but it is loaded with sugar and syrup. I wanted to make a healthier version of this drink for my kids to enjoy!

How to make Disneyland’s Apple Freeze

I start out by using my Kitchenaid Ice Cream Maker to make the PERFECT textured slushee. The KitchenAid ice cream maker attachment is not expensive and I use it all the time. For instance with this recipe or this recipe. It’s worth every penny. It helps if you keep it in your freezer then you can pull it out anytime for a variety of juice slushees, drinks or ice cream.

if you don’t have an attachment you can make this in your blender with frozen juice concentrate and freezing cold water + ice.

For caramel apple bottom i used two simple ingredients. 100% apple juice and vanilla extract. Some copycat recipes call for a toasted marshmallow syrup for flavoring. If you have this around you totally can try it, but A. its hard to find and B. LOADED with more sugar.

To make the slushee consistency, pour cold apple juice into the frozen ice cream attachment and let it stir for a 10-15 minutes till its thickened.

For the tropical creamy topping we used *cold* coconut cream! Add some mango and guava nectar.

    was SO happy to read about what to do without the kitchenaid attachment- looks so good and I thought I might not be able to try!
