Our family loves milkshakes in the summer to cool off. The creamy orange flavor of this shake was a big hit.

This milkshake is... ok? I would barely call it a milkshake at all since it came out in blobs instead of being smooth, even after I blended it over and over. It turned out way too sweet, since there is only 1/2 a cup milk and the rest is sweet. I tested it out in the middle of the blending process and realised it was too rich with sweetness, so I added another 1/2 cup of milk. After that, it was alright. It made more like 3 servings, instead of 2. Overall- I was not impressed. It wasn't the best milkshake I've had but it was average. I also added whipped cream to the top and it was actually pretty tasty with chocolate chip cookies (yum). I don't think I will make this one again, but I will keep looking for the perfect milkshake recipe. Read More

If you want to avoid the extra sugar from the orange juice concentrate use orange extract. It's a pretty standard milkshake recipe so I don't think you can legitimately say that the texture is bad. Before you recommend playing with the amount of milk do keep in mind that "scoops" of ice cream is a very arbitrary measurement. Try starting with a 2:1 ratio of ice cream to milk. Read More

Very good! Mix half vanilla ice cream and half orange sherbert with milk and it tastes a lot like the Varisty Orange at the Varsity in Atl. Read More

Tastes like an Orange Julius with ice cream. Needs something sweet to take the tart edge off. Maybe banana? Read More

YUM! I didn't use the whole half cup of milk just a tad and I added a half teaspoon of vanilla extract. Just like a Creamsicle. NOTE: I used Turkey Hill ice cream. Read More

Pretty good but not what I'd call spectacular. I used frozen vanilla yogurt which I like mixed just with orange juice cause I like nearly anything orange. I didn't like it quite as well with the milk so maybe I just don't like this flavor in a "creamy" sort of form. And yes "scoop" is very arbitrary which is why I dislike being given a measurement that way. I don't know what proportion I used. I think my scoop is smallish so I usually just make sure to make a BIG scoop. Read More
