As a kid, getting an Orange Julius was always a treat. Sweet and orangey, with a touch of vanilla. I don't see them around much anymore, but I also don't frequent malls either.
Over the 4th of July weekend, I hung out with my cousin and her family. My eldest cousin once-removed, Harmony Joy, made Orange Joyous' for all of us.
Wow! Did that take me back. So I asked for the recipe, and now I share it with you:
1 can frozen orange juice concentrate
1 C milk
1 C water
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 C sugar
10 ea ice cubes
Blend all in a blender, adding more/less
ice to reach desired consistency.
