"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!"

"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!"
