This recipe is inspired by Orange Cow -- a smoothie that I made last week for a nutrition education class at work. The class participants raved about it, but I thought it was just okay. It definitely had potential, though, and I couldn't wait to get home and experiment with the recipe.
Recipes abound for Orange Creamsicle smoothies, but my recipe is extra special because it has creamy fat free frozen vanilla bean yogurt. Best of all, it taste just like orange sherbet. Do you remember the cooling orange sherbet push up pops from childhood? Here's your chance to recreate memories...
- 6 oz frozen 100% orange juice concentrate, slightly thawed
- 1/2 cup fat free frozen vanilla bean yogurt (about 1 scoop)
- 1 1/4 cup 2% milk
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1 cup ice
Combine all ingredients, except ice, in a large blender and blend until smooth and creamy, making sure the sugar is well incorporated. Add ice and blend until smooth.
