Sunrise Smoothie (simple but unbelievable!)

Fill your blender half full with orange juice. Add a 28 ounce can of peaches (with mandarin oranges is fabulous), drained. Add about a cup of your favourite yogurt (like French Vanilla or Strawberry) and blend.

Use this as a base recipe for endless combinations and you'll never buy juice blends from the Tropics again!

Sorry its been two months, but could you kindly expand on this recipe a bit more?

"My blender half full of OJ will not accept 28 oz of peaches, let alone mandarin oranges of unknown quantity"

Yoghurt on top of that?, Well, okay...(I could even go for a banana -or two, given quantities!- into this mix)....

Its just my "blender" is of limited capacity, and will "erupt" if so tasked...

Lifter...

You're right, Gemini has a big blender! Sounds like a great Friday night special.

How do we fix this recipe or decipher it into something meant to be yummy?

My blender (standard kitchen) is 1/2 gallon (2 qts).
change the orange juice to frozen orange concentrate (maybe 2-3 oz)
change the 28 oz can of peaches to 1/2 cup frozen peach slices (unsweetened)
choose between orange juice and mandarin oranges and omit the unchoosen.
add plain yogurt (6 oz)
blend and serve.

Sounds wonderful. Try vanilla yogurt with fresh bananas and strawberries (or mixed berries) with orange juice. It's a favorite here.
