homemade orange julius

i'm starting week 3 of this mutant cold (sniffly last week;  thought i was getting better, then the kids got sick for third time since christmas and by thursday my snootful returned).  while looking at a cookbook i got from grams, i found a recipe for homemade orange julius drinks.  remember those?  no 80s mall rat would be worth their benetton salt if they didn't have a ginormous cup of orange julius.  there used to be a kiosk at my mall but it's been gone for years;  if i want a fix i have to go to lyco mall (i think it's still there, it's been years...)  that logo is the one from my childhood (image courtesy of

they say orange juice is good for a cold...why not blend up this luscious frothy drink from my youth?  i had all the ingredients on hand.

3/4 cup frozen OJ concentrate
1 cup of milk
1/2 cup of water
1 1/2 cups of chipped ice (i used cubes)
1 tsp vanilla (i used the good vanilla!)
1/2 cup of sugar (more or less to taste, i also found a recipe where confectioners sugar was recommended)

blend the above ingredients on high for one minute.  makes 2 servings

you can google orange julius recipes and find different variations on the drink, including one using egg (barf!).  there are also versions for strawberry, pineapple, even alcoholic!  i guess the recipe is only limited by your own imagination!
