New Amish Cookbook and a recipe

I just picked up an Amish cookbook at our local Winco grocery store.  It's called "The Homestyle Amish Kitchen Cookbook--Plainly Delicious Recipes from the Simple Life" by Georgia Varozza.  It is published by Harvest House Publishers ( It has some wonderful recipes that I will share soon.  Here is the first one.  I love creamsicles, and this reminds me of one or an Orange Juilius.  Enjoy!

Orange Float Mix

4 cups instant nonfat dry milk
2 cups powdered orange drink mix (such as Tang)
1 cup sugar

Combine all ingredients and mix well.  Place in an airtight container or large plastic storage bags.  Store in a cool, dry place.  Date the container and use within 6 months.

To Use:
1/2 cup Orange Float Mix
1 cup water
2 ice cubes

Mix together all ingredients in a blender and serve immediately.
Variations:  You can add frozen or fresh fruit or berries, flavored or plain yogurt, or anything else that suits your taste.
