Orange Julius!!


And now continuing with my unintentional series  of recipes I made when I was sick: Orange Julius!!!

Katrina’s mom was actually the one who introduced me to this AMAZING explosion of orangeness in a cup (otherwise known as orange julius). Ever since then, I’ve been trying to figure out how to make it without much success. Well, as many of you readers may already know, I have been sick for TWO WEEKS now (ya, I know), and as I was thinking of things to make that used oranges (which are high in vitamin C), and I immediately thought, ORANGE JULIUS. Although the sugar in this drink most likely cancels out most of its nutritious value, It still tasted amazing and made me feel a little bit better. I made this drink by using a recipe similar to this one, and it turned out pretty good, although not perfect. It was a bit thinner than I aspired, but that didn’t affect the taste at all. It was sweet and orangey, all while being frothy and ice cold: the perfect drink to liven up a rather dreary day filled with nose-blowing and coughing non-stop.

Ready to blend with my new hand held stick blender… I AM IN LOVE WITH THAT THING!!!!!!!

That is all you need to do to have this perfectly creamy and orangey drink. One thing I might change next time is that I might swap out the milk in the recipe for heavy cream to make it a bit more frothier, or perhaps the addition of baking soda might help ( I’m thinking because of the orange juice, it might froth up like how it does with lemon juice). Do you have any ideas? Have you tried making this drink before? How did it turn out? Tell me in the comments!!!!

Dance Forever,
