This is really sweet. To make it exactly like an orange push-up you should add more sugar. I did not want it that sugary. At 1/2 cup sugar it was too sugary for me.
My dad liked it though and that was who I was making it for, so goal accomplished.
Orange Push-Up Smoothies
This recipe is slightly adapted from Averie Cooks.
- 1 can orange juice concentrate, slightly thawed
- 1 cup milk (half and half, cream, nut milk, soy milk)
- 1/2 cup sugar, or to taste (If you add more it will taste more like a classic orange push-up, but that is a lot of sugar, so do what you want)
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ice cubes
Combine all ingredients, except ice, in a large blender and blend until smooth and creamy, taking care the sugar has dissolved and is well incorporated. Next add ice.
