This frothy and flavorful concoction is as fast to fix as it is to refresh. Renee Richardson says it makes a delicious splash at breakfast or any other time of day. "It tastes like an old-fashioned Dreamsicle," she notes from her kitchen in Pounding Mill, Virginia.

"We love this recipe! Discovered it a few weeks and have made it several times since--reminds us of an Orange Julius. We've been experimenting with different fruits and the same base ingredients: strawberries with strawberry yogurt--meh. Mango and banana with plain yogurt and pineapple juice instead of orange juice--divine! The pudding mix seems to be the key ingredient for smooth and mellow flavor."
