On 7/8/2011 I made this drink for the Fruit Event in the Food Photo Forum.Now I have to say,the description about this recipe was long,list of ingredients were short,but the finished product was full of flavor.Thank you so much for posting, and " Keep Smiling :) "
This recipe made it into our Book #231450. 6/14/08 - An absolutely fabulous drink! I used a 6 oz can of Dole mandarin oranges in light syrup and poured it all in (syrup included) and thereby omitting the need for water. I used an equal amount of frozen strawberries and about 1 tbsp honey. This did not make a 'brain freeze', but rather a smoothie. If you choose the brain freeze version, you can make it easier by simply adding ice cubes to the blender. The four of us drank this down with smiles. Oh how I should have tripled this recipe! We had to get one person to stop licking the inside of the blender it's just that good! The flavors of the strawberries, mandarin oranges, and even the honey are all there on your palate individually and melded together as they swirl around your mouth. Thanks for sharing this wonderful and versatile concoction. :)
I love mandarin oranges and strawberries, so I knew I would love this! I left out the honey. It was a great morning drink! Thanks! Made for the Best of 2008 cookbook tag!
This recipe is very tangy. My kids needed a bit more honey added to suit their tastes. I also used just fresh strawberries in this and maybe that is why I needed a bit more honey. Overall it is a drink I'll be making a lot this summer as it is much more healthy than most smoothies that use ice cream. Tagged in Zaar Chef Alphabet Game Apr 08
