Step 1: Ingredients
1 12oz can frozen orange juice concentrate
1 cup milk
1 cup water
6 ice cubes
1/2 cup of raspberry sorbet
Now if you don't want to add the raspberry sorbet, just substitute it with a quarter cup of sugar. I used the sorbet because well, we had it. And it also added some extra sweetness and tartness that blended beautifully with the orange.
Step 2: Mix it up
First off you want to pull the orange juice out of the freezer and leave it in the fridge or on the counter, five, maybe ten minutes. This will let it soften up without thawing out completely, which makes it easier to get it out of the can.
Also you don't want to throw in everything at once. Start with the juice, sorbet, milk, and water. Go ahead and blend these up until its smooth, then add the ice one or two cubes at a time. The idea is while the end result is frosty and delicious, you don't end up with big chunks of ice that don't get pulled down into the blades. Another tip regarding that is to not crank the blender all the way up to liquify. At a faster speed the blades just knock the ice back up. At a slower speed like chop or grate (both middle speeds, 5 and 8 on a 12 speed blender) it will pull the ice downwards and crush it up better.
