Orange Surprise! and my Smoothie Recipe

During the summer, I often make a smoothie {or shake, as we like to call them} to have with dinner.

One of our favorites is Orange Julius.  My oldest daughter was helping me make it. We had some strawberries so we threw some in and it was so tasty and refreshing.  In fact, after one sip, my daughter said "You need to put this on your blog." So we quickly dumped it into a clear glass for a picture.

So here is my Orange Julius recipe:
6 oz orange juice concentrate  {1/2 a can}
1 c. water
1 c. milk
1/2 c. sugar
1 t. vanilla
ice

Put it all in a blender and blend. I don't measure the ice, I just keep adding it until it gets to the right http://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=3809971886851305429#editor/target=post;postID=7209516474261001409consistency. 

For Orange Surprise:
add 5-6 large strawberries to the above recipe.

For other smoothies:
Instead of the oj concentrate, add 2-3 c. fresh or frozen fruit. {we usually use frozen} If the fruit is frozen you will not need as much ice.
Sometimes I add a yogurt too. 

The possibilities are endless.

Have you made smoothies before? What are your favorite fruit combinations?


Linking up to these parties.
