The picture above reminds me of exactly how the Orange Julius in the Mall looked mmmmm i can almost taste it now. I heard that orange Julius was bought out by Dairy Queen so i really need to look into that one. I know our local Dairy Queen doesn not have the Orange Julius so it must only be only the Tasty Treats/Dairy Queens in the mall, I have yet to see one of those. No worries though you can recreate this creamy dreamy drink at home.
These are the ingredients you will need:
Orange Juice, Sugar, Powdered Sugar, Milk, Ice, Water and Vanilla Extract
Add frozen Orange Juice to blender. I have a hard time finding the 6 oz size orange juices, so i buy a 12 oz and save the remaining to make another batch. I always end up making more.
blend for 1 - 2 minutes, adding ice cubes one at a time.
pour into glasses and serve. If you feel the drink is a bit sweet for you liking you can tone down the sugar to 1/8 cup each. Not me 1/4 cup each is perfect. This taste exactly how i remember it, now if i just had those french fries it would be a perfect match.
*If you want to you can add 1/2 of a banana to the recipe for more of a smoothie.
