Orange Freeze Float

Author Notes: I am lactose intolerant. This was not fun growing up in a time before Lactaid and Tofutti. For years I had non-dairy creamer mixed with water for my cereal. It was made especially cruel by having an older sister that could eat the five scoop Reeses Pieces sundae at Friendlys not gaining an ounce or developing a bellyache. On particularly hot days my mother would break out the blender and make this frosty treat.

Traditionally sherbert is made with milk, but Jack and Jill brand was milk free. Thankfully my intolerance has abated and I am able to enjoy all and every milk product in moderation.

Makes: one serving


  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup ice cubes
  • 3 scoops orange sherbert, divided
  • 1/2 cup club soda
  • 1 sprig mint, for garnish
In This Recipe
