Orange Julius

When I was a little girl growing up in Evansville, Indiana, it was always a real treat to go to the Eastland Mall and get an Orange Julius. I remember what a big deal it seemed to be way back then and how I looked forward to getting one.

Since it is the week of the Fall Festival in my hometown and since I don’t get to be there (*wipes tears from eyes*), I thought today I would make a little something that brings back some good childhood memories.

  • 6 oz can orange juice concentrate, frozen (I have only found them in 12 oz, so I use half the can)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 12 ice cubes
  • whipped cream, optional

Place all the ingredients in a blender. Blend until you have a smooth creamy texture. Serve immediately. This recipe makes 3 glasses this size.

I hope you enjoy this. What are some of your favorite childhood memories of food?
