One of my all-time favorite drinks during my pregnancy with Cadence was an Orange Julius. I swear I lived at the mall just to purchase one daily. Okay… it wasn’t a daily purchase, but damn near close. It was so good and so satisfying. I had no idea how I would even attempt to make one at home until I came across the recipe on The Hungry Housewives.

For all my Orange Julius-aholics, you can thank me later….

6oz Frozen OJ
1/2 Cup sugar or 1/4 cup honey
8-10 ice cubes
1 cup milk
1 cup water
1 Tsp vanilla

Combine all ingredients in a blender until smooth and frothy. Serves 4.

Bottoms up!
