I got the recipe from Tawra Kellam's book Dining on a Dime. If you don't own a copy, you might want to consider it. Her drink recipes alone are worth it to me. I'm also fond of her mocha frappuccino recipe. (That's what I call it -- from her "master" smoothies list.) Tawra also has a website, Living on a Dime. I searched it for the "Creamy Orange Shake" recipe, and she has it posted here.
Frozen orange juice concentrate, milk, sugar, water, and pure vanilla (this is how I make my own) are all it takes. Blend all together with a few ice cubes to get some wonderful frothy action. Please don't leave them out -- the froth is simply divine.
