Orange Julius

      ORANGE JULIUS.... Mmmmmm! This is one of my favorite drinks to make. When Kale and I first got married I used to make these for us with our Sunday breakfasts  : )  
This delicious drink is so good and really easy to make.
Here's how I do it:


makes 4 (8oz) servings

8 oz frozen Orange Juice concentrate
1 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
12 ice cubes

Combine all ingredients except ice into a blender. Blend for 1 minute.
Add 3-4 ice cubes at a time and continue to blend until all crushed and thoroughly mixed. Pour into glasses and gulp away : )

I have never had a Orange Julius, can you believe it? It looks seriously refreshing and that's just the kind of thing I'm craving lately.I've been getting grape slushies at sonic, but this looks SO good I will have to try it!

Wow. That looks just like the ones you get from the Orange Julius stands. I bet it tastes better! I love the banana ones too.

What a delicious looking drink for breakfast or even anytime. I'm starting a new linky on my blog this Saturday called "Sweets for a Saturday." If you get a chance, I'd like to invite you to stop by then and link this up.

Some very good friends of ours (who at the time were neighbors and today live on another continent) used to make these for us when we'd get together. This brings back such great memories. Thanks for posting! I haven't made these in years and will plan to make them for my family this weekend!!! :)
