LeFou’s Brew is a slushy apple drink with a fruity foam top found at Gaston’s Tavern.
And much like many other Disney foods, sometimes we have a craving for some of that magical Disney goodness.
Would I rate this drink higher than a Dole Whip or Night Blossom, in Disney’s Animal Kingdom? Probably not.
But, it’s still delicious and definitely a great treat to have on a hot day, no matter where you are.
We Made LeFou’s Brew At Home!
If you’ve ever spoken to me, you’ll quickly discover that when it comes to the kitchen, I’m pretty much be happier being anywhere else.
Let’s just say that if I ever become a millionaire, the first thing I’d get is a personal chef.
Luckily, LeFou’s Brew is so easy to make, that even I can endure a few minutes whipping up this delicious treat.
The day I decided to make LeFou’s Brew, I went to the store to pick up a few ingredients I needed.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t find the flavors I needed exactly, so I had to make a few substitutions. But, it tasted delicious, and it didn’t seem to change the overall flavor too much.
Foam Topping Ingredients
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream, cold
- 4 tablespoons Mango Nectar/Juice (I had to substitute for a Mango Blend)
- 4 tablespoons Passion Fruit Juice
- 3 tablespoons sugar
Apple Slush Ingredients
- 2 (12 ounce) cans of frozen no-sugar added apple juice concentrate (keep frozen until ready to use)
- 12 ounces cold water
- 3 squirts (or tablespoons) Toasted Marshmallow Syrup (I had to substitute for a Vanilla Syrup)
I dumped all of the ingredients I needed for the foam and start mixing it up with my hand mixer.
The recipe I had found did say that this process would go a lot faster if you started with a chilled bowl. But, due to lack of time, I didn’t do this.
While it did end up working out in the long run, it took a long time. Next time I will definitely start with a chilled bowl to see how much of a difference it makes.
If you look at the photo of the finished product you will notice that we went a little heavier on the foam than you would normally see in the Parks. But, that’s because we had so much more foam than we had Brew.
While we didn’t mind it, if you’re not a fan, you may want to adjust the recipe.
Compared to the topping, this step took no time at all.
All I had to do is dump the ingredients into my ninja blender and blend it all up.
Quick and easy…just like I like it.
I did add a few ice cubes to thicken it up a little bit. But, that’s just because I like my slushes to be on the thicker side.
The Final Product
Despite the slight difference in flavors, it was a nice treat. And, honestly, I didn’t even notice the difference.
Of course, it’s not the same as the real thing. But, it’ll have to do until we can get back to our home away from home.
