Orange Julius

Sharing is caring!

Let me tell you about our weather right now… it is &%!kin# HOT. My AC ( which is set to 80) has been going all day, I am sweating just sitting on the couch. I constantly feel like I need a shower. And it’s super muggy too. The air is so thick you could almost grab it and ring it out. It’s days like this that I wish we lived in Canada.
So to fight off the heat I made the kids and I my favorite childhood drink, the Orange Julius. My Mom used to make these for us when my brother and I were kids. I’m sure Mom snuck a little rum in to her glass though.
This is a super refreshing drink. Make a batch for the kids and adults on your next hot summer’s day.

Orange Julius
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1/3 can frozen orange juice concentrate
1/4 cup sugar
1 t. vanilla
2 oz. light Rum ( optional )

put it all together and blend! Enjoy!

  1. I used to ask for one of these almost every time we went to the mall when I was a kid, so yummy and refreshing. This looks so good right now – summer in a glass!
