Creamsicle Drink

Last week when our temperatures were near and over 100 for nine or ten days straight, we needed something to beat the heat. I remembered that we had some Tang and I wondered if I could recreate the creamsicle flavor in a drink ... and this beverage was born! My kiddos loved it!







Creamsicle Drink
Yield: 3 servings

1 cup water
1 cup milk
1/2 cup Tang
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
12 ice cubes

Add all ingredients to a blender. Process until smooth and frothy. Serve immediately.

I hope you enjoy!

Shared at these fun parties!

  3. I have never heard of creamsicles - they look good though.
    I got to this via Mealtime Monday on Couponing and Cooking. I have linked in spicy mince lettuce cups. Enjoy.
