How much did I love Orange Julius when I was a kid? It was that special treat you’d get when you went to the mall: frosty, sweet, orangeylicious! Does Orange Julius still even exist? I feel like I haven’t seen one since 1989. Maybe it’s all the Prince music I’ve been listening to since the tragic news broke yesterday, but, for some reason, I got a crazy Orange Julius craving today. So, I went outside, picked some oranges and whipped up this:
Orange Julius-inspired Smoothie
- 4 oranges, peeled
- 1 frozen banana, cut into slices
- 1 cup ice cubes
- 1/2 cup vanilla soy milk, or any milk
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
Put everything in your trusty Vitamix and blend it up. Put on your Purple Rain soundtrack and try not to get too depressed, because at least it’s Friday.
