Copy Cat Orange Julius

October 30, 2014

When we were kids Saturday morning was always the favorite day of the week. 

We watch Saturday morning cartoons, which included my favorite book turned show "Fudge" as well as orange juice smoothies. 

There was a packet of stuff you could use to make orange juice smoothies that was pretty good, but not nearly as good as an Orange Julius. Mom loved a good Orange Julius. 

In a fit of pregnancy hormones a few weeks ago I started using what I had around the house to try and come up with an easy recipe, most of the recipes I've used over the years called for orange juice concentrate and I didn't exactly feel like leaving the house. 

Hence the recipe I came up with that night and have drank two entire bottles of orange juice by myself making these every day. 

Copy Cat Orange Julius

serves 1 (or 2 if you like to share)
1 packets of granulated stevia (essentially 2 tsp)
3 tbsp half and half
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups of Simply Orange Orange Juice (low pulp)

Add all of the ingredients to a mason jar and shake well, serve over ice. Or you can freeze some of the orange juice and make this in a blender if you prefer frozen. 

What was your favorite drink growing up?
