I realized I hadn't tried any rationing recipes for beverages and I liked the sound of this sunny drink for a fine spring day - Florida Milk Shake. The interesting thing about this is that it uses evaporated (or "tinned") milk along with orange and grapefruit juices and I was absolutely convinced it would taste like an orange cream-cicle.
The recipe comes from my fun Lysol Victory Cook Book. I love the little blurbs they put before each section of recipes focused around one of the "Basic 7" food groups.

The recipe was very simple.
|Orange juice, grapefruit juice, evaporated milk, water, sugar, salt, and ice|
Simply combine all the ingredients in a "shaker". I think the recipe is referring to a shaker used in making cocktails? In my case I used my mixing pitcher.
Shake or plunge - whatever.
Sprinkle with nutmeg and enjoy!

In the end, I was surprised that it didn't taste like an orange cream-cicle at all. It was just refreshingly citrus with slightly more body to it than just regular juice. The nutmeg added an interesting spicy element to it too. My kids weren't huge fans, but I liked it.
|I just love that they have the recipe divided in half for you. It makes my job easier!|
I made the 3 portions recipe.
