When I was a kid, in the 1970s and 80s, Orange Julius was a really popular drink. We had Orange Julius stores at the mall, and everyone made them at home, too. In fact, it was one of the first recipes that I learned how to make. It’s cool, refreshing, healthy, and it tastes like a fresh creamcicle in a glass. I love colorful paper straws! They make everything a little more fun. You can
- 1 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 can (6 ounces) frozen orange juice concentrate
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- 2 cups ice
- Combine milk, vanilla, frozen orange juice concentrate, and sugar in a blender, and pulse until thoroughly mixed.
- Add ice cubes, and blend until crushed and smooth. You can adjust thickness to your liking by adding a little water (if too thick) or a few more ice cubes (if too runny).
If you want some really CUTE STRAWS, they’re right here.
