Orange Smoothie Recipe

Okay, actually it’s called an “Orange Fizzy”, but it’s basically an orange smoothie. And boy, oh boy is it yummy!

Strawberry Shortcake made this recipe from her Sandra Lee Semi-Homemade Cool Kids’ Cooking book. BTW, it is a great cookbook for kids, there are tons of yummy, but easy recipes to make! It’s a great gift idea too!



  • 2 cups orange juice  (We like Sunny D, I know it’s not real orange juice, but it’s good!)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 8 Ice cubes
  • 2 Tbsp. powdered sugar


Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth! Serve with your favorite breakfast, or have as a mid-day snack!

    I’m sure this is tasty, but that’s a whole lot of refined sugar! Especially if you use Sunny D.

    Here is a great recipe for an Orange Julius.
    1/2 can frozen orange juice concentrate
    1 c. water
    1 c. milk
    1/2 cup sugar or less to taste
    dab of vanilla
    fill to top with ice cubes.

    Also not a big fan of Sunny D. It’s the modern day Tang :o)

      Sounds great, thanks for sharing!

    Yum! I just purchased the cookbook as well because it looked like it was not too overwhelming for the little one’s to practice a little kitchen independence. Thanks. We seriously could not do all that we do homeschool wise without your creative ideas. 🙂

    Sounds so yummy! My daughters will love making this to help out with breakfast & snack time!
    The cookbook sounds like a good idea for a birthday gift, my oldest has a birthday this month!
    Thanks for sharing all the great blog post. You have been a great blessing to my homeschool family! 🙂

    I’ve never tried anything like this, but it has definitely peaked my interest. I have several oranges that I need to use up, so I may try it with those. Thanks for the recipe!
