This recipe reminded me of an Orange Julius.  It was really good and I even used skim milk.  It makes a very foamy top and the kids had fun seeing who had the biggest milk mustache.  A fun way to get more dairy into our diet.

This recipe is better without the water; using only milk. Also if you like it thicker add some vanilla or lemon yogurt!

Used in classroom demonstrations- enjoyed by most all students.  Great recipe they were going to try it for Mother's Day treat! 

For those who can't drink dairy, try using vanilla-flavored soy milk. No need to add vanilla extract. Be sure to check the nutrition facts label. Choose a product that contains at least 30% DV calcium in the soy milk per 8 fluid ounces.  This has been a big hit, even with those who have never tried soy milk before.

This is a great healthy dessert option.
Tastes like an orange creamsicle -MMmmm!
