A famous chain of juice joints made history with a creamy orange drink like this. A few still exist, but if you can’t find one near you, you can always make a similar drink at home. The secret is the “magic” powder-instant pudding mix.

  • 1 ½ cups ice
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla syrup
  • 2 heaping teaspoons instant vanilla pudding mix

Combine all the ingredients in a blender. Cover and pulse on and off until the mixture starts to swirl evenly. Blend on high for 20 seconds, or until the drink is completely smooth.
