Earlier this summer, my mom presented me with the little cookbook (a pamphlet, really) from my middle school home economics class. (Is that still a class, and is it still called Home Ec? Just wondering!)
As I flipped through the wrinkled pages, I smiled when I came across the recipe for an Orange Julius. I remember being home by myself one summer afternoon and deciding to make this little concoction. Unfortunately, my experience with the blender was minimal. The parts at the bottom were not attached properly, and when I picked up the blender jar to pour the drink into my glass, the orange liquid oozed all over the place. To make matters worse, whatever method I chose to "clean" the floor was completely inadequate. Understandably, my mom was less than pleased to come home to the sticky kitchen, and for awhile I was only allowed to use the blender under adult supervision!
I recently made another attempt at making an Orange Julius, and this time everything went OK. Here's the recipe--enjoy this easy summer treat!
1 c. milk
1 c. water
2 T. sugar
6 oz. orange juice concentrate
1 t. vanilla
8-12 ice cubes
Blend all ingredients. Make sure all blender pieces are firmly attached. =) Serves 4-6.
