Morning Orange Drink

Hello and happy summer to all (happy winter to those of you in the southern

Last week I had surgery on one of my salivary glands, so I needed to avoid
solid foods for several days. I found a recipe for Morning Orange Drink in
"The Best of Country Cooking 1999" and the drink is wonderful. It's a
really nice treat on a hot summer day! This would also be a great drink to
sip on during the winter while you're waiting for breakfast to finish cooking.

The recipe makes 4 large servings. I poured a glass and then put the
blender container in the fridge to stay cold. When I wanted another glass
of the drink, I put the blender container back on the machine, added a
couple more ice cubes, whirled the drink for a 20-30 seconds, and had a
frothy drink again.

I used regular skim milk, but I think that the recipe would work fine with
soy or rice milk.

NOTES : Original recipe called for 1/3 cup sugar. I used Equal, instead.
This is a terrific drink and is suitable to serve at breakfast or with
lunch. It also makes a great snack in the evening. Two thumbs up!

"Although it requires only a few basic ingredients and little preparation,
this drink always draws raves from overnight guests about its wake-up
taste," says Joyce Mummau of Mt. Airy, Maryland.
