These smoothies will really cool you down on a hot day.
Combine the following ingredients in a 6-cup blender:
Ice cubes to the 3-cup mark
6 ounces frozen orange juice concentrate
2 rounded tablespoons sugar or Splenda
2 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 banana (if desired)
1/2 teaspoon coconut extract (if desired)
Enough regular orange juice (not concentrate) to fill the blender to the top mark.
Put on the lid and blend on high speed until the slush is smooth. Serve immediately in glasses with straws. Enjoy with a clear conscience -- orange juice, milk and water are good for you, and the banana is good for you too, if you added it.
