These fresh orange julius smoothies are the perfect combination of orange and vanilla in a refreshing and delicious drink!
There is something about when the weather warms up and summer starts to come around, I always want to eat more fruit. I don’t know if it’s the warm weather and my body wanting to feel a little healthier, or because a bigger variety of fresh fruit becomes available – but I just want it!
In the evenings I always want something sweet to end my night, but lets be honest I feel a lot better about eating them when they start with a fruit base. Blending them up in a smoothie, like this orange julius, is the perfect way to quench my sweet tooth, and is the perfect evening treat.
I’ve made this fresh homemade “orange julius” many times, and it’s always such a delicious, and fairly healthy drink. It’s a perfect drink for the summer because it’s so refreshing and delicious. But also great in the winter with all the fresh winter oranges, and for a perfect ray of sunshine in your day.
Orange Juliuses are the perfect combination of orange, and vanilla. It’s 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.
