Orange Slush

Orange Slush

This is a delicious, nonalcoholic drink similar to an Orange Julius.


1 can (6 ounces) frozen orange juice concentrate

¾ cup cold water (an orange juice can full)

1 cup whole milk

2 tablespoons sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup chipped ice


Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until thick and frothy. Pour into glasses and serve immediately. Serves 3 or 4.


Cherry Limeade

Cherry Limeade

Recipe is by Tracey Koch.

Serves 4.

4 cups water
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup fresh lime juice (approx. 12 limes makes 1 cup of juice)
2 cups ice
1/2 cup maraschino cherry juice
4 maraschino cherries

1. In a 2-quart sauce pot, heat the water and sugar over medium-low heat until all of the sugar is dissolved. Once it is all dissolved, set it aside to cool.

2. Slice the limes and squeeze the juice into a 1-cup measuring cup.

3. After the syrup is cooled, stir in the lime juice.

4. Divide the ice among four (8-ounce) glasses. Add 2 tablespoons of maraschino cherry juice in each glass and then pour in the limeade.

Garnish each glass with a cherry and serve.

Kitchen helpers: This is a great recipe for kids to practice squeezing fresh limes. You can use whatever device you have handy to squeeze the limes. We find that for this task an old-fashioned reamer works best.
