Orange Dream

By Mayo Clinic staff  |  Serves 4

Dietitian's tip: Whip up this frothy cooler in minutes- it tastes like an old-fashioned Creamsicle. For best results, start with ice-cold soy milk and use freshly squeezed orange juice. Creamy, custard-like silken tofu adds extra body. For additional calcium, use calcium-fortified orange juice.

1 ½ cups orange juice, chilled
1 cup light vanilla soy milk (soya milk), chilled
1/3 cup silken or soft tofu
1 tablespoon dark honey
1 teaspoon grated orange zest
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
5 ice cubes
4 peeled orange segments


  • In a blender, combine the orange juice, soy milk, tofu, honey, orange zest, vanilla and ice cubes. Blend until smooth and frothy, about 30 seconds.
  • Pour into 4 tall, chilled glasses and garnish each glass with an orange segment.
