People ask what are orange creamsicles made of.

There is also some kind of cold dairy-like product added to them.

We are also adding orange juice concentrate to this recipe.
Using a real source of orange juice rather than an orange beverage is a good idea.
Can we mix orange with milk in an orange milkshake recipe?
Let me start by saying that we are not adding milk to this recipe.
This is mostly because we are making a milkshake and we need it to be thick and cold.
However, we are using milk-like ingredients.
Like most milkshakes, we are adding vanilla ice cream.
Also added for texture is heavy cream.
