I love the combination of orange juice and mandarins blended with cream cheese and yogurt. Because smoothies are so filling, you can serve these as shooters with brunch, so everyone gets a taste. —Roxanne Chan, Albany, California

"I loved the orange cream combo of this smoothie! The orange cream yogurt and the cream cheese make for the perfect orange creamsicle flavored drink. As another reviewer stated, it's very runny with 4 cups of orange juice. I used only a cup of orange juice the second time I made these, and the texture was perfect."

"My daughter didn't like. My son drank some though. I was hoping this would taste like an orange julius, but it was too thin. I'm glad I halved the recipe."
