Orange Juice Special
My family loves smoothies. Our reigning favorite is still the Bananarita Breakfast Smoothie, but this one holds a close second. The hubster says it tastes like one of the old Orange Julius but I think it tastes more like a Dreamsicle to me. Concentrated orange juice is the secret to that burst of flavor while the milk and vanilla make it nice and creamy. Although Ricky and I disagreed on what it tastes like most, we both agree that it is worth repeating whenever we get a chance!
I’m working on getting my tour dates ready to announce as well as several other big announcements. Since we’re in the home stretch leading up to the book release, I’ll be doing an update post about once a week to let you know something new and exciting that is going on for the Southern Plate Family. I can’t wait to “give” you all of the surprises we have in store over the next few weeks, including some REALLY big ones! ~squeal~
In the meantime, while I work on the back end of things, get in there and make your family a smoothie . Love you all. Gratefully, Christy
You’ll need: Frozen orange juice concentrate (still frozen), milk, vanilla, and sugar. I am using Ideal Sweetener* in place of the sugar. You can use real sugar or your favorite substitute.
*Ideal is a natural sugar substitute that can be baked with just like sugar. I’ve fallen in love. Lots of local grocery stores carry it but none of the ones near me. You can order it off of Amazon.com though. I dearly dearly love it in my iced tea.
Place your frozen orange juice concentrate in a blender.
Pour in your milk.
Add your vanilla
And your sugar or sugar substitute.
Note: there is still a lot of natural sugar in that orange juice but this does cut matters somewhat.
(I just felt like yelling that)
Serve in a glass over ice if you like. This makes about four.
Orange Juice Special
- 1 Cup of frozen orange juice concentrate
- 1 Cup Milk (I used whole)
- 1 tsp Vanilla (give or take, I eyeball it)
- 1/2 Cup sugar (more to taste if you like)
Place all ingredients in blender and mix until frothy. Pour over ice to serve. Makes about four.
