Orange Cream Shake

Orange Cream Shake

Thick, creamy, and citrusy, this shake is the perfect treat on a hot summer day!
When my kids were little, I loved taking them to the mall to walk around and let off some steam. One of their favorite stores to go to was Gymboree. My mom and I went nuts over their clothes (I'm pretty sure we owned stock in that place!) and the back of the store had a little play area with toys and a TV playing their videos. I can still envision it like it was yesterday, my boys sitting in those little rocking chairs, singing and clapping along to the video, watching and listening intently. Seems just like it was yesterday.

Sorry, I'm getting a little teared up here! Anyway, during our little outings we often went to Olga's to have lunch. My mom and I have always loved their Greek salads and pita sandwiches, and the boys loved their three cheese Olga's, curly fries, and the orange cream coolers. The cooler is like an orange shake, and my boys could suck them down in the blink of any eye! They literally drank every last drop.

I decided to recreate that delicious frozen orange cream dreamy drink. Since summer is right around the corner and my boys loved those shakes (who am I kidding, I did too!), I thought the timing was perfect.

What I created, to me, is almost an exact replica. My kids think it tastes pretty darn close, too. And the best part? It takes just three ingredients. That's it! A blender and three ingredients, and you're on your way to a cool and creamy orange treat, perfect for any hot summer day.
