frostySome of the “Can Dos” were playing with Orrie in his backyard. It was a warm day and they were wishing for a frosty treat.

Just then, Grandma Maureen called out from the kitchen window, “Who wants one of my Frosty Orangeliciousness drinks?” Well, the”Can Dos’ didn’t know what a Frosty Orangeliciousness was, but it sounded great, so they all yelled, “We do!”

They all came in the kitchen, washed their hands and sat down around the kitchen table. All eyes were on Grandma Maureen as she prepared individual servings of her frosty drink.

Soon they were all enjoying the smooth, creamy, frosty drink. It tasted so good and really cooled them off!

If you want to make this frosty treat, here is the recipe. Remember, for safety sake, have an adult help you with the cutting and running the blender.
