Here in Southern California, I don't see much of Orange Julius anymore. The chain was everywhere during my childhood. One look at their bright orange logo would send my taste buds into a tizzy! I miss the creamy, frothy orange sweetness of their signature beverage! I know that Dairy Queen bought them out. If Orange Julius still exists in the local malls, I wouldn't know since I shop mostly in old town districts and at charming detached shops.
However, I am sharing a simple, refreshing recipe that revisits the joys of Orange Julius! It's a sweet treat to beat summer heat!
• 1 cup orange juice
• 1 cup water
• 2 egg whites
• 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1/4 cup granulated sugar
• 1 heaping cup ice
Combine all of the ingredients in a blender set on high speed for exactly 1 minute.
Note: You can always adjust the water level if you want the orange flavor to be more predominant.
