Salted Caramel Apple Slushie

Salted Caramel Apple Slushie
On our recent trip to Disney World, I saw an advertisement for a Caramel Apple Slushie drink at one of their Quick Meal eating establishments.  I figured, I can make that.  So once I got home I started experimenting.   After a few experiments, I came up with a recipe that was delicious.  My son describes it as a liquefied salted caramel apple.  In my experiments, I used Gala apples in all of the tests.  What varied was the caramel flavoring.  I tried using the Caramel Syrup they use in coffees but that did not work so well.  The caramel flavoring that received the most family votes was the Caramel topping you use on ice cream.  Once I figured out the best caramel to use, the rest was easy.  In a stand blender place the apple, some apple cider, caramel topping, kosher salt, and some lemon juice.  Blend until smooth.  Next, throw in 6 ice cubes and blend until smooth.  Pour the slushie into a glass and top with some whipped cream drizzled with some caramel syrup.  Hope you enjoy this refreshing cool autumn beverage.
