A great summer treat
My sister found this recipe and gave copies to everyone in the family. I am not quite sure when it was, but I do know that it was when our kids were little, so it was quite a few years ago.
We thought it was so cool that we could make our own Orange Julius at home. They were served at parties and just when we had a craving for them. But then the kids started growing up and the Orange Julius faded into just a memory.
The other day I started thinking about these refreshing drinks and knew that our granddaughter would love them. She loves smoothies and I knew that this Orange Julius would bring a smile to her face.
So I went to my recipe file and pulled it out. I made it for a treat after dinner tonight and not only did the granddaughter enjoy it the adults did as well.
