The following week we were enjoying some nice, sunny days and I decided to re-create the drink for my kids for their after-school snack. I used my recipe for "Orange Frostie" and made a few variations. The end product was a hit with the kids, which shouldn't surprise anyone. My kids are so used to Green Smoothies that to be served a drink without a single vegetable, they were bound to be excited.
So here you go, my Orange Julius knock-off...
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup powdered milk (optional)
1 tsp. vanilla
6 oz. can frozen orange juice concentrate ***
1 tray of ice cubes, crushed
Put all the ingredients into the blender and blend on high until all the ice is crushed and the ingredients well mixed.
***For my Mango re-creation I used a can of DOLE Orange-Peach-Mango in place of the orange juice concentrate. I also replaced 1/2 of the ice cubes with chunks of frozen Mangos (purchased at Trader Joe's).
