Last night we were having breakfast for dinner. I love breakfast for dinner ;) . We had buttermilk waffles with pureed (frozen) strawberries, buttermilk syrup, and jalapeno bacon. I was going to make a fruit smoothie to go with dinner, but the boys all wanted Orange Julius. I didn't have orange juice concentrate or any oranges to make the other recipes I have, but I did have orange juice. SO, I went to the internet to find a recipe that uses orange juice for the Julius. I found it here at Lynn's Kitchen Adventures.
We all enjoyed this recipe very much. I actually prefer the Orange Julius recipe with the orange juice concentrate....a little more orange flavor and a little more tart, but this is great too!! We will definitely be making these again!
I added more ice than the recipe calls for. We like our Orange Julius a little thicker....SO adjust the amount of ice you add to your liking.
