Copycat Orange Julius
Growing up, one of my favorite summertime treats was a good ol' Orange Julius.
Sipping on an orange Julius really brings back happy memories of summertime as a kid. I remember when my dad would get one of these for me on our Daddy/daughter dates to the movies.
If you haven't had an Orange Julius before I would describe the flavor to be much like a creamsicle but in smoothie form.
It's so simple to make one of these. Basically, all you have to do is blend up a combination of concentrated frozen orange juice, some milk, ice, vanilla and a bit of powdered sugar.
These are so refreshing in the summer or really any time of the year.
You could also pour the blended Orange Julius into some popsicle molds for a nice frozen treat!
- 1 can of frozen concentrated orange juice
- 3/4 cup of milk
- 1/4 cup cold water
- 1/8 cup powdered sugar (aka confectioners sugar)
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 cups ice cubes
- Combine all ingredients in a blender until smooth.
- You may have to set the blender on pulse to break everything up.
