Classic Orange Julius


*Note: our favorite variation (albeit not very original) is to throw a handful of frozen or fresh strawberries into the mix. Strawberry-Orange Julius. Inventive, eh?

*Makes 3-4 cups


6 ounces frozen orange juice concentrate, no sugar added

1 cup lowfat or skim milk

1 cup water

1/4 cup powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

10-12 ice cubes


Combine all the ingredients except the ice cubes in a blender and process until smooth and frothy. Add the ice cubes and blend until smooth (you can blend to your desired consistency - I like a few nubs of ice here and there but my kids like it ultra-smooth).
