How to Make Orange Julius at Home
Making an Orange Julius at home is quick and it is easy.
The first step to making this tasty drink at home is to use a blender or food processor. The ingredients get blended together to create this frothy drink.
Add the ingredients to the blender- First, spoon the frozen orange juice concentrate into a blender and top it with the granulated sugar.
Next, pour in the milk along with the vanilla extract and the cold water. Top the mixture off with the ice cubes and the lid is placed back on the blender.
Blend the ingredients- Blend the ingredients together until the ice is broken down and the mixture is frothy and creamy.
For maximum flavor and satisfaction serve this drink immediately. I do not recommend saving this for later because it will become watery and the texture will be off.
