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?
