Orange Pushup Smoothie

So I'm crusin around in blog world, not doing anything productive, and I find this blog MOMS CRAZY COOKING. I found there was a linky party so I signed up! The 7th of every month is a new cooking challenge. This month is Smoothie month. I found this recipe at Averie Cooks, made it and now I'm going to share it.

                                                       Orange Push-up Smoothie                 

1 can of Orange Juice Concentrate, slightly thawed

1 cup of milk (I used half n half, you could use nut milk, cream, soy milk, etc.)

1/2 cup of sugar (I added sugar and ended up putting in a whole cup because it wasn't sweet enough for me)                                                       
3 tablespoons of vanilla (the recipe calls for 1/2 a    teaspoon but I couldn't taste enough vanilla so I      added a lot  haha)                                                  
                                                                                    2 cups of ice or to taste                                         
  1.  Put all the ingredients except the ice into your blender and liquefy.
  2. Add the ice. Blend.

My sister, Carsyn, and I drank it and froze the rest to eat after dinner tonight. I hope you enjoy your orange push-up smoothie. And please vote for me!


  1. I bet your mom liked this. For some reason, I have a random memory that she likes Orange Julius, and this sounds like that.

  2. It was a lot like an orange julius. We froze it and it was even better as a sorbet then as a smoothie.
