This is actually Derek’s Mom’s recipe. Derek says their family tradition on Sunday evenings was to pop popcorn and have orange julius. It has rolled over into our family as well. Whenever we have a movie night with the kids we usually pop popcorn and blend some orange julius. That combination is just fantastic together. I have also at times thrown other fruit into the mix, but it seems like classic orange julius is the favorite around here.
- 6 oz frozen orange juice
- 1 C milk
- 1 C water
- 1/2 C sugar (I usually put in less)
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 12 ice cubes (I usually add a few more than that, so add to your desired frozen consistency)
*Blend all together in your blender, pop some popcorn to go with it and get cozy on the couch with a movie.
