Orange Julius

Tall glasses of Orange JuliusWhen 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.  a tall glass of Orange JuliusIt’s cool, refreshing, healthy, and it tastes like a fresh creamcicle in a glass.  Orange JuliusI love colorful paper straws!  They make everything a little more fun.  You can

 I’ve used them several times (like with this Blue Pina Colada  or this Christmas Drink).  When I use smaller cups, I simply cut the straws in half.

In a blender, combine:
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 can (6 ounces) frozen orange juice concentrate
1/3 cup granulated sugar
Pulse until thoroughly mixed.
