Orange Julius

I grew up in small city in the Pacific Northwest, known for its role in the cult TV show, "Twin Peaks", and, evidently, its outlet mall.

As a kid, I didn't really understand the significance of having an outlet mall close by, and I suppose I took it for granted, never really knowing why people would travel from miles away to come to our small city just to go to the mall.  Then, I moved to a place that didn't have an outlet mall...and it was, admittedly, a disappointing shopping experience.

BUT, the small shopping center did have one thing that our "fancy" outlet mall did not.  An Orange Julius.  I love Orange Julius.  I remember on the rare occasion, getting one from the actual store on a trip or two into Issaquah, but mostly, as a kid, we made our own Orange Julius' at home.

This recipe is so refreshing, and just as good as those made in the store.  So save yourself a few pennies, and make them in your own blender!


Orange Julius


6 oz frozen orange juice concentrate
1 c milk
1 c water
1⁄4 c sugar
1 tsp vanilla
8 ice cubes


Place all ingredients in a blender and pulse until the ice cubes have broken up and everything is smooth and creamy.  Pour into glasses.  Drink immediately.
