    Do you realize in the recipe book that comes with the blender, this recipe does not state to peel the oranges. It tastes HORRIBLE if you don’t. Peel them like this on-line version states and I’m sure it will be better!

    So Blendtec…where’s the answer?

    This is a great version of the Orange Julius drink. I made it vegan using coconut milk (drinking) and agave syrup. I also did not have the frozen concentrate so I used half milk and half orange juice. But the flavor and consistency were excellent! And I love sneaking in a squash into my kids’ drink. : )

    The Whole Juice setting seems to deal with seeds and other odd textures better than just the Smoothie setting. I find that if I use raspberries or blackberries or kale or spinach, I get the best results with one cycle on "Smoothie" then a second cycle on "Whole Juice". That way the seeds or kale-ness is not noticeable. In this recipe, I think the squash skin and seeds would give it an odd texture unless you use the Whole Juice setting.

    No, you do not cook the squash.
