SRC - Orange Julius

Phew ... I finally have some time on my hands and its back to business as usual around here. The last month has been insane with getting ready for Easter and my husband's sister's wedding (that happened yesterday). The levels of activity in my home has been crazy, not to mention the soaring levels of heat and humidity. Summer's at  its peak here and I can hardly wait for the monsoon this year. I've had my fair share of the heat to last me for a life time. I was so happy with this months assignment for SRC, Crumbs and Chaos - a wonderful place where you can find tonnes of yummy stuff. Crumbs and Chaos is the effort of 4 wonderful sisters Becca, Emily, Kate and Megan. There are so many things that I want to try out. I enjoyed every moment I spent over there. Unfortunately I didn't have too much of time at my disposal but I know I'll be visiting them frequently from now on. So do go over and pay them a visit. You won't regret it.

This month, I decided to whip up something cool and refreshing and this Orange Julius is just that. It is simple to put together and I really liked the way it turned out. I know I'm going to make this a few times this summer to help beat the heat. Don't be fooled by the simplicity of this drink, it tastes amazing. I'm glad to have this added to my summer coolers arsenal. I just cut down on the sugar in the recipe and was happy with the results. But feel free to change the sweetness of this drink to suit your liking.


Orange Julius

1 cup orange juice
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup ice
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Blend all the ingredients together and serve chilled.

  9. Milk and OJ sounds crazy together but I'm willing to try anything. I'm stopping by from SRC but be sure to stop by Seasonal Potluck this month. We have peas AND rhubarb link parties open! We'd love if you'd share any recipes you may have http://bit.ly/H9XJGB

  10. Wow, it looks like it'd taste just like a creamsicle. I'd bet it would freeze well in a popsicle tray.
