Orange Julius

Long before there was Jamba Juice or anything similar, there was Orange Julius. There was an Orange Julius store in every mall. Now there is just one left in Salt Late. Orange Julius was delicious. Whenever we were shopping and were in a rather indulgent mood, we would dig 35 cents out of our purse and buy one. It was so refreshing. As I recall they used fresh squeezed orange juice. It also had a secret ingredient that was magically delicious. The employees of the store were sworn to secrecy and refused to divulge the secret. Margaret thought she had it figured out. She used Similac for the magic ingredient. But I think it may have just been powdered milk. Sometimes they had different flavors, like strawberry or mango. But the orange was always the best.

Orange Julius

8 - 10 ice cubes
1 12 oz can frozen orange juice (slightly thawed)
1½ cups milk
1 cup water
½ cup sugar
1 t. vanilla

Put all ingredients in blender. Blend on medium to high speed until ice cubes are completely chopped and the mixture is foamy.
Serve immediately.
