"If you're looking for a refreshing drink, I can guarantee that you'll find it in an orange frosty," writes Karen Radford, 12, of Bothell, Washington. "This wonderful drink tastes delicious and is so easy to make in the blender."
"This refreshing drink is a breeze to make and brings a cool taste of summer to any season," relates Darlene Brenden of Salem, Oregon. "Our house is surrounded by fruit orchards, so I've tried this recipe with peaches, apricots and pears."
The mellow mingling of peach, banana and apricot flavors makes this refreshing smoothie so soothing. Writes DeAnn Alleva of Hudson, Wisconsin, "A spark of tart lemon adds a little tang, but honey keeps the drink on the lightly sweet side."
Sun-ripened strawberries are all the fruit you'll want in this basic-but-tasty beverage from Diana Leskauskas of Chatham, New Jersey. If you use fresh berries, she suggests setting aside a few to garnish glassful of the pretty pink drink.
With its chocolaty twist, this frothy concoction appeals to folks of all ages, assures Anne Yaeger of Houston, Texas. The zippy sipper is a great way to ensure youngsters get plenty of calcium-packed yogurt and milk, too.
"I originally began blending up this simple beverage when our young girls shied away from berries," recalls Heidi Butts from Streetsboro, Ohio. "Now they're thrilled whenever I serve it. The thick fruity drink is a refreshing treat no matter what kind of berries you use."
We have a few raspberry bushes in our backyard. If my grandchildren don't get the berries first, I use them in recipes like this one. Of course, the kids love the mellow flavor of these shakes. So either way, they win! —Jacquie Adams, Colquitlam, British Columbia
This yummy fruit-filled slush sports a tangy citrus flavor. "It's especially refreshing on a warm day, but I make it year-round as an after-school snack," writes Debra Cornelius from Grant, Nebraska. I've found that a soup ladle works well for scooping the mixture into the plastic cups."
