Classic Orange Julius

  • Yield servings

This simple smoothie is packed with vitamin C!



6 ounces frozen orange juice concentrate, no sugar added
1 cup lowfat or skim milk
1 cup water
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
10-12 -- ice cubes


Combine all the ingredients except the ice cubes in a blender and process until smooth and frothy. Add the ice cubes and blend until smooth (you can blend to your desired consistency – I like a few nubs of ice here and there but my kids like it ultra-smooth).
