Honey and Orange Creamsicle Slushy by Picky Palate

Who doesn’t love a good icy slushy refreshing drink in the summer?  I know the boys and I do.  Did I mention this one is good for you too?  Win win, yay!

I am thrilled to be partnering with Simply Orange today to feature one of their new products, Simply Orange with Banana.  Be sure to check out Simply Orange with Tangerine and Simply Lemonade with Blueberry new for Summer.  We have been enjoying Simply Orange juices for years and appreciate their dedication to making a natural juice.

Headquartered in Apopka, Florida, Simply Orange Juice Company is proud of the approach they take with our great-tasting 100% juices and juice drinks. Since the launch of Simply Orange® in 2001, they have been making orange juice simple, the way nature intended. Our not-from-concentrate orange juice has never contained added water, sugar or preservatives and is gently pasteurized to ensure that you always get a fresh-squeezed taste experience.

Be sure to follow Simply Orange on Facebook.

Simply Orange Banana Juice

Simply Orange with Banana is blended with not-from-concentrate banana puree for a fresh taste experience with a tropical twist.  Wait until you try this juice in my slushy I’ve made for you today.  So refreshing!

My challenge today was to take one of my recipes on Picky Palate and update it using Simply Orange with Banana.  I chose my Frozen Strawberry Milk Slushy.  How perfect to use juice!  It turned out amazing.

With only 5 needed ingredients, you’ll have this icy drink made in no time at all.

Let’s take a look at how to make the slushy, shall we?

Orange Juice and almond milk

I love the simplicity of this recipe, just add your juice and almond milk to the blender.
