Orange Push-Up Smoothies

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.
