Reviews for Morning Orange Drink
"Really yummy and tart orange drink. I've made it many times, never fails!"
"This is the best orange-drink recipe I have ever found! It is called "Orange Julius" in Recipes Across America. Such a good combination!!!"
"My family loves this drink. We use fewer ice cubes and 1% milk."
"I have been making this for years. My family loves this in the summer for supper with a BLT or salad."
"very good (once in a while)."
"The drink is much more tart than I was expecting, which is why it IS a good "wake-up" drink. It says "serve immediately" because it will separate in the fridge, but you can stir it and it will be fine. It's light, frothy, and VERY easy to make. :)"
"Delicious! Everyone wanted a refill! Tasted very much like an Orange Julius."
"It tastes a lot better w/ evaporated milk."
