Orange Bang Drink

Any one have a recipe? I found 1 online that was similar. However, it was waaaaay too sweet or something. I can't figure it out.

Here's the recipe:

1 cup Viva 1% Low Fat Milk *
3 oz orange juice concentrate
cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup ice crushed (6-8 cubes)
cup water

From this site:

http://www.lanimoo.com/lifestyles/recipes-detail.asp?recipe_id=10

I would assume I could just keep trying and put less and less sugar. If any of you guys have ideas or a recipe for this...that would be great! I'd love to not have to test this over and over again. However, I do realize it takes some time for perfection

BTW: I have done my research online and haven't found anything else!

I would think 3/4 cup of sugar is a typo. that much sugar in 4 cups of liquid is called something else....syrup.

also look at the calorie count...100 cal/ (1 cup) serving


Sugar (Serving size) Calories
Table Sugar, 1 level teaspoon (4g) 15
Table Sugar, 1 heaped teaspoon (6g) 25
Table Sugar, 1 cup 770
Table Sugar, average (1 cube) 25
Icing Sugar, 1 average tablespoon (12g) 48
==========
Maybe 3 or 4 teaspoons would be closer. The amount of sugar in the recipe would add about 144 calories per 1 cup serving.

If you are really a math sleuth, you could reverse engineer this by caloric value of all the items except the sugar and then add enough sugar to make 100 cals/cup.

edit: just wanted to add; Why do you think they call it Orange "BANG"? With that much sugar, it will hit you with a bang alright.

oooooh.... holy moly! durrrhh...

I'm just so used to following directions that I did it! Oh no...we even finished the drink just so it won't be wasted.

Good at following directions...not anything with math.

I think I'll try the 3 or 4 teaspoons Thanks nap

Low Cal Orange Float Recipe

1 cup skim milk
2 tbs Frozen orange juice concentrate
4 Ice cubes
1 tsp Artificial sweetener
1/2 tsp Vanilla

Of course, one could always simply add a scoop of ice cream to a glass of orange juice!

I did the math for it, calculations in Quote if needed, and it is simply 1/4 cup (13tsp more accurately) of sugar needed to be added to achieve 100calories in that recipe (the one posted first). Sorry about the necro of this thread but I LOVE these drinks and did the math for it and assumed other fellow googlers would need it.

1tsp vanilla extract = 12cal
1 1/2c ice crushed (9% conversion from ice -> water) = 0cal
1/2 c water = 0cal

- The overall calories -
100cal + 42cal + 12cal = 154calories overall.

- The overall yield amount -
1c + 3oz + 1tsp + 1.5 * 1.09c + .5c
1 + .125 * 3 + .0208 + 1.5 * 1.09 + .5 = 3.5308cups

Now we need to express x as the overall calories needed to be added.

(154+x)/3.5308 = 100 (multiply both sides by 3.5308)
154 + x = 353.08 (Subtract 154)
x = 199.08cal

To get a measurement of sugar to add, that is simply 199.08cal / 15calories each tsp.

199.08 / 15 = 13tsp OR .276~cups or 1/4~ cup.

( This does not account for the added teaspoons of volume from the sugar, I am too lazy to do that formula :P )
