A creamy orange smoothie with milk and a hint of vanilla
3 ounces frozen orange juice concentrate
1/2 cup milk*
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 banana, optional
6 regular-sized ice cubes (or until desired consistency)
1. Blend together orange juice concentrate, milk, water, sugar, vanilla, and banana (if using) for 1 minute.
2. Add ice cubes to blender, one at a time, blending after each one until smooth. You don't want chunks of ice in your orange julius! :)
*You can use any type of milk you prefer, including soy milk.

This is a delicious, slightly sweet, creamy smoothie. The vanilla adds a great flavor, making this taste like an orange dreamsicle type of drink! :) It's also quick and easy to make. :) My rating: 10/10
