Orange Push Up Smoothie

This taste like the Orange Push Ups that you find in the ice cream section of the grocery store. They can be served as a smoothie or frozen to enjoy as a frozen dessert. Adapted from Love Veggies & Yoga on Pinterest.

Orange Push Up Smoothie:


  • 1 can (12 ounces) frozen orange juice concentrate, slightly thawed
  • 1 cup milk (half and half, cream, nut milk or soy milk can be substituted -- I used skim milk)
  • 1 cup sugar or to taste (you can reduce the sugar or use an alternate sugar substitute, but it won't taste  quite as close to the classic Orange Push Up)
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups ice

Combine all ingredients in a large blender and blend until smooth and creamy.  If it is thicker than you would like it, add a little more milk or a little water.

Makes approximately 3 eight-ounce servings.

You can pour into Popsicle molds or ice cube trays and freeze if desired for later use.
