I’m not sure how many of you remember WAAAAAY back when Orange Julius was being sold in malls across America! You don’t see them anymore! Well, no worries, you can still create those favorite drinks right in your own home. Here’s how!
1 (12 oz.) can FROZEN orange juice concentrate
2 cups lowfat or whole Milk
1 1/2 cups Water
1/2 cup Powdered sugar
1/2 cup Sugar
2 tsp. Vanilla extract
3 – 4 cups Ice cubes, more a thicker drink
In the container of a heavy duty blender (I used my Vitamix), add the frozen orange juice concentrate.
Add the rest of the ingredients, in order.
Cover the blender container and process slowly at first, then revving up the speed until the ice has been completely crushed and drink is smooth. Check for consistency and add more ice, process again until smooth. Serve immediately!
NOTE: This recipe can be easily halved. Other frozen juice concentrates and frozen fruits can be substituted out for a variety of flavors.
