  • 1/4 cup orange juice concentrate $0.33
  • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple $0.58
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract $0.14
  • 1 Tbsp sugar* $0.01
  • 1 cup whole milk $0.31


  • Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and frothy. Drink immediately.
  • For a thicker drink, add a few ice cubes or more frozen pineapple. For a thinner drink, add more milk.


*You can definitely reduce the amount of sugar in this recipe to meet your needs, but I found that 1 Tbsp gave the drink that dessert like quality that you find in the mall version.
