Creamsicle -- Orange Dreamsicle Style

Remember those marvelous summer treats from the ice cream truck? Vanilla ice cream on the inside and an orange sherbet on the outside combined to make a most refreshing treat. Sonic sells a drink quite similar in taste, but if you want to make one at home, try this:

1 1/2 cups vanilla ice cream
1 cup mandarin orange sections, fresh or canned
1/2 cup milk -- or cream if you must
2 tablespoons frozen orange juice concentrate
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Combine all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
If thicker texture is desired add more ice cream or frozen concentrate.

I may be back with a variation -- I'm still looking for just the right one.
