Who is ready for a homemade “ORANGE JULIUS“? I remember when my older kids were small taking them to Orange Julius at the shopping mall. We always ended up to get a blended orange or strawberry smoothie drink. One of my favorite all time refreshing smoothie recipes. This ice blended drink is perfect to sip on in the summer, or anytime your craving one! You need to try this copy cat Orange Julius smoothie recipe.

You might remember when I shared my new blender, and this yummy strawberry smoothie recipe. My version of a Strawberry Julius.

Summer is in full swing in our house. Slow-motion sweetness + Smoothies galore. Sunshine, staying up way too late, binge watching shows, with the daily must do list getting checked off early in the morning when it’s cool.

PLUS, WHOLE LOT OF BLENDING! Breakfast time, snack time, lunch time, and even when it’s too hot to have a real dinner.

Kids and teens mean eating (or drinking) non stop. Inspired by the orange smoothies I had spotted I decided to try to make my own version of my all time favorite. I like using fresh ingredients, like juicy oranges. Don’t you?

I like to blend mine all frothy.

Pour your Orange Julius recipe with fresh oranges into a glass. Want it thicker? Add the whole banana but, it might take that orange flavor away a bit.

What’s happening this summer with my teen? Sammie’s ticked off a few new things: gotten her driver’s license, tennis team for school, an online college class, and a new gym membership. I’m getting vanilla protein powder, and going to try making a few blended power drinks for after her workouts. Or to power up our morning smoothies. I promise to share those blended smoothie recipes too.
