Did you all know that I don’t like shopping? Like, at all. The thought of spending money always stresses me out. In fact, I put in a petition last year with my family to cancel Christmas presents.
It didn’t go over well.
But the one thing I DO remember liking as a kiddo when Christmas shopping (or any shopping) was necessary was getting an Orange Julius at the mall. So frothy and tangy.
Dang, I love orange juice.
Did you also know that until I was 18 (and left for college) my dad used to come in my room to wake me up with a glass of orange juice for me to drink in bed every morning?
I know, I know. I was the youngest of three and the only girl – so I’ll admit it, I was spoiled. But to this day, I still like a swig of orange juice in the morning to wake my mouth up.
And an Orange Julius is even better.
Homemade Orange Julius
- 1 1/4 C orange juice
- 1/2 C plain greek yogurt
- 2 T powdered sugar
- 2 T milk
- 1/2 t vanilla
- 12-15 ice cubes
Add all ingredients in a blender and blend on high until the ice is crushed and drink is frothy. Actually, I used my food processor because my blender doesn’t crush ice very well.
