Orange Julius Drinks

Orange Julius Drink – this is what I served at the birthday party
12 ounce can frozen orange juice

1 can milk

1 can water

1/2 cup sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

Ice cubes

Put all in a blender and mix.  Add more ice cubes if desired.

Very delicious!  Lucy, Aidan and Sam are good friends – Lucy fell down in church and got her black eye 2 weeks ago.

Finished this book today – very long read but worth it!

    Mary.I am not sure why but some of your pictures are very distorted. I have looked on 2 of my computers.Both are the same. Do you reduce the size before you post?
    I will be trying your recipe.Looks good. Iowa weather has been very very hot and humid. Good for the tomatoes and corn.I like winter much better.
    Your rugs are very colorful. I have made window frame rugs.
    Enjoy your day. judy j

    Thanks for the OJ recipe. Sounds refreshing! Pat Conroy is in my top three list of favorite writers. I’ve read all his work (multiple times) and truly mourn his recent passing.
    P.S. Just finished my third rug… recycled denim from our saved worn jeans. It was hard work but I love the finished result. It’s featured at if you want to take a peak.

      Shirley – I looked at your rugs and they are wonderful – you have done a fabulous job! Your twining is very even and your rugs lay perfectly flat and even. You should be very proud! Hope your hubby is doing well.

    Mary I have read 100s of books in my almost 69 years and this one is still on my top 10 list. One of the great ones.

    Since I’m lactose intolerant, wonder how different it would be with a substitute?

    How fun to find plastic fancy glasses, it’s like a grown-up party for the kids.

    Do you use evaporated milk? Condensed milk would make it very sweet. That’s my kind of drink and I’m looking forward to making it soon.

      I wondered about that too when I first read the recipe, but you use the now empty orange juice concentrate (cardboard or plastic can, container) for your measurement cup! Now, I hope I interpreted That correctly!

    I will try serving your Orange Julius drink to my granddaughters at their “tea parties”. Love it!

    My oldest son (now retired) used to make these with his grandpa. I found the old recipe he’d printed on note paper tucked into my favorite recipe book not too long ago. I just copied your and Nikki’s versions to give to my teen grands when they come pick up their dogs today.
    Your peonies look wonderful, Mary!

    Thank you for sharing. I will try this as soon as I get the orange juice.

    I make something similar but use 12oz Orange Juice (frozen)..12 oz milk (measure with can) and small Jello instant vanilla or French Vanilla pudding and blend in blender………so yummy and refreshing………..
