When I made this recipe, it reminded me of that long lost orange push-up pop flavor. The only difference was that it was in the form of a smoothie rather than the classic and fun push-up pop. Depending on the brand of orange concentrate you use you may need more or less sugar as there are varying levels of "orange peel" bitterness to each brand.
Bottoms up and here's to our childhoods!
Orange Push-Up Smoothies
- 1 can orange juice concentrate, slightly thawed
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 cup sugar, or to taste
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups ice, or to taste
- Combine all ingredients, except for the ice, in a large blender and blend until smooth and creamy, taking care the sugar has dissolved and is well incorporated. If desired, add a splash more water or more milk. Add the ice and blend until smooth. Makes approximately three eight-ounce portions.
