Orange Cream Shakes

It’s super hot and humid here!  Lucky for me, I’m an indoor girl! hehe. But I still like to eat my cool summer snacks!  And I’ve had a super craving for ice cream lately.  Maybe it’s because the ice cream man drives by our house every day!
This week I’m sharing a wonderfully yummy recipe that came to me via my lovely bloggy friend Chaya of Chaya’s Comfy Cook Blog. Seriously, I made this almost immediately after I saw it!
If you love Orange Dreamsicles, Push-ups or anything like that, you’re sure to love these Orange Cream Shakes!

Recipe for Orange Cream Shakes:


4 cups vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt
2 cups orange juice
4 tablespoons milk
6 tablespoons sugar or agave
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Directions:  Place all ingredients in blender.  Blend until smooth.
