Great Dessert Drinks

Like the classic ice-cream treat that inspires it, this refreshing shake combines the zest of orange and the rich, smooth flavor of vanilla.
1 cup orange juice
4 scoops vanilla frozen yogurt.
Combine the orange juice and frozen yogurt in a blender or food processor. Blend until creamy. Serves 1.
Naturally sweet, this three-fruit combination is packed with vitamin C and potassium.
1 frozen banana
1/2 cup fresh strawberries
3/4 cup pineapple juice.
Combine the fruit and juice in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Serves 1.
Here's an iced tea that's just right for kids and adults. It gets its zip from fruit slices and fresh mint, not caffeine.
6 to 8 bags of decaffeinated tea
1/2 gallon water
4 oranges, 3 juiced and 1 sliced
8 lemons, 7 juiced and 1 sliced
1/3 cup honey
1/2 bunch of mint steep in the sun for 3 or more hours. Remove the tea bags. Add the remaining ingredients and stir. Pour into tall, ice-filled glasses. Serves 10.
