Even Better Than the Real Thing - Homemade Orange Julius

I'm going with a song theme for titles this week I guess.

We've been enjoying our first real hot, sunny weather of the year here in Medicine Hat.  For a city that is in semi-arid desert, we sure have gotten a lot of precipitation in the last year.  Today was the perfect day for making Orange Julius' and sitting out on the deck.

Orange Julius

Combine & process on high speed in a blender until ice is crushed:

  • 6 oz. frozen pulp-free orange juice concentrate
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/3 - 1/2 scant cup of white sugar (this means that you can use any amount from 1/3 to just shy of 1/2 cup, depending on how sweet you want it.)
  • 12 ice cubes

One of my peonies has finally bloomed and it's a stunner!
