As a kid, I remember going to the mall and getting an Orange Julius. That was before my coffee days. I found this recipe on Pinterest (best website ever) and it makes me want to try it!
Homemade Orange Julius
This recipe requires that you make fresh orange juice “ice cubes” the night before, so plan ahead!
Makes enough to fill 4 tall glasses
2 cups freshly squozen orange juice (see *note* below)
1 cup ice cubes
1 cup Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon honey (more or less to taste)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Make small orange juice “ice cubes” with 1 cup of the orange juice by filling compartments of an ice cube tray about 1/3 full. Freeze overnight, or even for about 2 hours to get them “slushy.”
Put frozen orange juice cubes, orange juice, and ice cubes in blender. Blend on high until ice cubes break down.
Add yogurt, honey, and vanilla extract. Blend on low speed to combine, then serve.
*note* It took 1 large orange, or 2 smaller Mandarins to make ½ cup of juice, so about 4 large oranges or 8 small ones (Yes! We can do math!)
