Dr. Seuss's Sleep Book...........
A moose is asleep.
He is dreaming of moose drinks.
A goose is asleep.
He is dreaming of goose drinks.
That's well and good when a moose dreams of moose juice.
And nothing goes wrong when a goose dreams of goose juice.
But it isn't too good when a moose and a goose
Start dreaming they're drinking the other one's juice.
In the cookbook, there is also a recipe for Goose Juice that has kiwi and lime sherbet in it, but we decided we'd rather try the Moose Juice. The combination of orange juice, banana and orange sherbet seemed like it would be delicious!
Ingredients (printable recipe)
1 1/2 cup orange juice
1 cup orange sherbet
1 banana, sliced
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Whipped cream or Cool whip
Candy Corn (optional for garnish)
1. Combine the orange juice, sherbet, banana, and vanilla extract in a blender. Puree until smooth.
2. Pour into a glass and top with the whipped cream or Cool Whip. Add candy corn if desired.

Not bad. It was easy to make and doesn't it look fun! It was cool, sweet and orange-y, but it didn't blow us away. My daughter thought it was good, but could've been better. I was expecting it to be similar to an Orange Julius, but it wasn't. It just tasted like really sweet orange juice. I have a recipe for homemade Orange Julius that my mom use to make when I was a kid and it is much better than this. Moose Juice was worth a try, but we'll stick to our Orange Julius recipe.
