Dreamsicle Shake {and homemade mix}

This is my family's favorite Summer Time Treat!
I made the first batch of the summer this week and I kid you not...my hubby was moaning as he enjoyed the first tall cold glass of Dreamsicle Shake!

I'm sharing the recipe for the homemade mix you can make and keep on hand all summer long.  Add water and ice and/or vanilla ice cream and enjoy!

{to make the mix}
5 1/2 cups powdered milk
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 - 20 oz can of Tang®   

  1. Dump it all in a large bowl and blend it with a whisk. 
  2. When fully blended, pour the dry mix into a container or zip top baggie and store for use as needed.  

{to make a shake}
1/2 cup of the shake mix

3/4 cup ice
~1 cup water
~1/2 cup water and a large scoop of vanilla ice cream
~2+ scoops of vanilla ice cream and a little water to make drinkable


  1. Place all of the ingredients into a blender.  Blend on a medium to medium high speed until ice is crushed and drink is smooth.  
  2. Be sure to blend long enough to dissolve the sugar granules.  
  3. Sit back and enjoy!

Using another orange drink mix might be tempting...but don't do it!  
The signature flavor of Tang® is the 'secret' ingredient for the 'dreamsicle' experience!

Use a large wire whisk to blend it all together.  
When you think it is fully blended, stir it just a little more to be sure!

I like to keep my bulk blend on the kitchen counter, right by the blender for easy access!
With a little ice cream in the freezer, 
even the boys at home can whip up their own shake as desired!

I love filling up a jar of this summer sweet treat 
and bringing it as a host gift 
to summer barbecues, or pool parties.
