You can buy these in the mall here. But we found out they put salt in them, so we make our own.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 ounces milk (skim is fine)
  • 6 ounces frozen orange juice concentrate

  • 1 frozen banana, in pieces
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  1. Place all ingredients in blender and blend till smooth.
  2. If too thick, add more ice cubes.

YUM! This was good, I made a few minor changes because of what I had on hand. Instead of the frozen orange juice concentrate I just had Minute Maid Orange Juice in a carton not frozen and subbed for that. I did have the frozen banana as I had thought about making some type of smoothie with it yesterday so I stuck that in the freezer. I omitted the sugar and added 2 teaspoons of gourmet vanilla extract. Also omitted the ice cubes, the frozen banana made it plenty cold for me. Next time I'll make with vanilla soy milk so my hubby can have some too. OUTSTANDING recipe! This will be a keeper.

Made a double recipe without the sugar, only 1 banana and no ice cubes - turned out GREAT! Everyone had seconds! Thanks for a fantastic recipe!

Pretty good! What I did though was use the doubled recipe, and i used 1 banana instead of two and 1 tablespoon of vannilla, an it turned out ok... Just a suggestion to some people ...
