Reviews for Frosty Orange Smoothie
"Hey, toss out the sugar and ice--this is delicious without it! My favorite smoothie because it is the smoothest!"
"This has been a family favorite since my son brought the recipe home from school over 35 years. I also use this to make popsicles that the kids love."
"Great recipe! I used pineapple orange juice concentrate, and no sugar. It was plenty sweet."
"This drink kept me alive through my 100 degree average summer!"
"This was delicious and tasted just like the ones I got in the mall as a kid! Yum! I doubled the amount of ice, used the orange juice concentrate in its frozen state (not thawed), and I used fat free milk and 4 drops of stevia extract instead of sugar. These changes reduced the calories per cup to 105. Yummy-licious!"
"Try eliminating the milk and add powdered egg whites instead.( Don't worry they are pasturized) More protein and much more like the real thing."
"We loved this recipe. Not only was it easy, but it was delicious and reminded me of the orange juliuses I used to get at the mall as a child. I did add more ice than it suggested and a banana. Yummy. Next time I am going to add strawberries!"
"love this drink! the perfect kind of sweet!"
"just light the one i had at the mall on a trip out of state...only we couldn't get it locally. now we can make it at home. fantastic!"
"Very refreshing. I substituted vanilla soy milk for the milk and then eliminated the extra sugar and vanilla."
"The milk makes a big difference. Other recipes I had tried had powered. I probably added more ice."
"This recipe was very easy and tastes great. We make them for birthday breakfasts."
"So Tasty...just like the treat you can get at a mall. Make one batch at a time for best results."
"Grape Juice works too"
"Has anyone ever tried making this with a different concentrate (such as lemonade or limeade)?"
"This recipe is great with a powdered vanilla protein shake mixed in!"
