Something about when the weather warms up and summer comes around, I always want to eat more fruit. I don’t know if its the warm weather and my body wanting to feel a little healthier, or because of the variety of fresh fruit available. But I just want it!
In the evenings I always want something sweet to end my night off, but let’s be honest I want sweets all day long – and eating them in the form of fruit I feel a lot better about myself. Blending them up in a smoothie to quench our thirst and our sweet tooth has been the perfect treat.
I recently made a fresh homemade “orange julius” and it was a delicious, fairly healthy, drink. They are the perfect drink for summer, because they are so refreshing and absolutely delicious!
Orange Juliuses are the perfect combination of orange, and vanilla. Its a creamy and delicious drink that whips together in just a few minutes in your blender! And is the perfect thing to cool off with and enjoy on a warm day, or summer evening.
