The Pin Junkie: Orange Julius

Orange Julius

Orange Julius

Have you ever tried an Orange Julius?  I first learned how to make this recipe in my middle school home economics class decades ago and was reminded about it by a pin on Pinterest.  The combination of milk and orange juice might sound like a really weird combination,  but it actually makes a great shake.  This is a really refreshing drink you can easily make at home with just a few ingredients you probably already have in the fridge.  Just mix it up in the blender and enjoy!

Ingredients
6 ice cubes
1/2 cup frozen orange juice, from concentrate
1 cup milk
1 cup water
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup sugar

Directions
1.  Crush ice in blender.
2.  Add remaining ingredients.  Blend until smooth.
