Homemade Orange Julius

This is a family favorite, my mom used to make when I was little. It’s a yummy refreshing treat that can be served for breakfast, as a snack, or as dessert. You can make it with almost any flavor of frozen juice concentrate.

Orange is our favorite, but strawberry and pineapple are also amazing. To change things up you could add a banana or some frozen strawberries to the blender.

I used to make this with granulated sugar but just recently started using powdered sugar. It’s not quite as sweet and makes a smoother drink than the granulated sugar.

There’s no better way to save money than by making your own food and snacks at home.
