Frothy Sunrise Punch

Yesterday was cloudy and had a light breeze.  It was cool enough outside that I had my windows open and it kept my house cool.  My A.C. hardly turned on.  

Today, my A.C. hasn't turned off.  It is very very warm.  A refreshing, cold, drink was a MUST.  

I have made this Sunrise Punch from The Pioneer Woman a few times now.  It is creamy and frothy and totally hits the spot.

The magical ingredient is Meringue Powder.  It makes this drink so frothy and it stays frothy for a long time.     
Meringue Powder can be found at any baking supply store or even at your local grocery store, if they have a cake decorating section.  One container is only a few dollars and it will last a really long time.  I like to add it to my icings (like in this recipe and this recipe).  It helps the icing harden like on donuts from the bakery. 

So, pick yourself up a container of meringue powder and make this incredibly delicious drink.  You will love it and want to make it all Summer long. 

If the juice and the froth start to separate, just stir it back together with your straw.

1 c. orange juice
1 c. pineapple juice
1 c. whole milk
1 1/2 Tbl. meringue powder
1/4 c. powdered sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 c. ice

Combine all ingredients in a large blender and blend until smooth and frothy.  Yield: 3-4 servings, depending on the size of your cups.   


  1. Oh that sounds delicious Jenn! I'm thinking it might taste very much like the copycat Orange Julius recipe I use, only frothy and with more flavor because of the pineapple juice and vanilla. We will give this one a try once our weather warms up for the season!


    1. The pineapple flavor does stand out and it is delicious. I want to try adding strawberries next time to see if it tastes like a strawberry julius!

  2. This drink is so perfect for summer, love it!!

  3. This looks delicious...and I'm so excited to pick up some meringue powder! I've never heard of it before, but it sounds like a fabulous addition to my baking arsenal! ;)

    1. The meringue powder is totally worth the few bucks it costs! Thanks!
