Orange PushUp Smoothie

The Best Blog Recipes: Orange PushUp Smoothie

Orange PushUp Smoothie

I'm sitting here wondering how many of you grew up in a place where the ice cream truck would drive around in the summer time playing that crazy loud super annoying jingle that you could hear from 3 streets away?  Every summer without fail it would come driving slowly through our neighborhood streets and we would all get excited and run to our mothers and ask for money. 

What sweet treat would you get with the money that your mom gave you?  Maybe a super delicious Orange PushUp?  Even though they were tiny they would almost immediately start melting the minute you unwrapped the top.  By the time you got all the way down to the bottom you would have a melty mess but it was always so sweet and creamy and good! 

I didn't realize how much I loved those little treats until I came across a recipe for an Orange PushUp Smoothie from Averie Cooks and made if for my family.  I did reduce the amount of sugar from the original recipe and added a little bit of ice cream to the mix.  Delicious, yes!  Will I make it again, heck yeah!

Orange PushUp Recipe Ingredients
Print This Recipe

1 can of frozen Hawaiian's Own Mango-Orange Flavor
1/4 cup milk
1 cup of vanilla ice cream
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Place everything in a blender (I used my magic bullet which worked great!) and blend until smooth.

Shauna's Tips
I tweaked the original recipe just a bit.... like always!  I didn't want to put crushed ice cubes in my blender so I just added vanilla ice cream instead.  I did cut my sugar in half though, down to 1/4 of a cup and I might cut it to 1/8th of a cup next time.  I suggest starting with less sugar and adding more if needed :)

No ice cream truck in my neighborhood, but I love an orange push-up. I made a variation last summer without ice cream. I bet it is so amazing with it.

Delicious! I want one right now! I had one this weekend - and it brought back lots of memories - I would use the ice though to cut calories:)
