A little visit to the Wolfchase Orange Julius stand this past Sunday at noon when I was trying to turn my mind so completely off that all I would hear was an empty buzz (having no table or decent dining room for Thanksgiving, hearing about the fam's newly-hatched plan to celebrate Christmas at 5:00 on Thanksgiving-- yeah, I've been a little preoccupied...) made me remember how well oranges and vanilla match. Tonight I thought I would recreate that lovely drink with a Monday-night twist: Absolut Vanilla. Here's what you do:
Squeeze 4 oranges and one red grapefruit
2 shots Absolut Vanilla
1 c Stonybrook Farms fat-free vanilla fro-yo
vanilla bean or orange slice garnish
Mix it all up in a silver cup with a whisk and garnish. Serves 2. Tastes exactly like a push-up pop!
