Now they drink freshly squeezed orange juice, but I like try to and use the oranges in recipes and that is how I found this recipe. I had heard of an orange Julius, and thought it sounded interesting, but I could not have imagined it tasted this good, I would never thought of trying an orange, 'frothy milkshake', but it's delicious.
But even though I love to drink an Orange Julius, try making an ice pop (ice block) out of it. They are the best ice pops ever, my kids cannot get enough of them. If I am making them into ice pops, I don't add ice to the blender, it isn't necessary. And I always double the recipe if making ice pops, because you can't have too many.
You can control the sugar amount, but for me this amount works perfectly.
This is now one of our favourite treats, it is winter now and we can't stop eating them, I can't imagine what summer will be like, I will be making it daily.
I forgot to mention how ridiculously easy this is to make, no excuses, this recipe needs to be tried.
So if you love oranges, and you are looking for a refreshing drink, and are looking for simple treats for the kids, this recipe is a must, trust me, you will love it.
