Orange Julius Pops


Want an Orange Julius? Go to the mall.

That's how it was. That's what it was, a delightfully refreshing mall treat. Not anymore. Now, 4 kids later, I avoid the mall at all costs. Therefore, plan B.

Want an Orange Julius? Keep your freezer stocked with OJ concentrate.

As usual, my eyes were bigger than my stomach, and apparently, that of my family's as well. Last week we broke out the blender, and for some reason, I felt it was necessary to double the Orange Julius recipe. Turns out, it wasn't. We ended up with, oh, I'd say...a full batch left over.

Orange Julius isn't the kind of thing that keeps well in the fridge, and you know what they say...waste not, want not. Thank goodness for those popsicle molds that have been sitting (unused) in the cabinet for a million years.

Umm, not quite!

During one of my "Please don't nominate me for Hoarding: Buried Alive" moments, I must have gotten rid of them. Good thing my husband has ignored my continual nags to hook up our ice maker...we still have ice cube trays!


Orange Julius
1 can frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
1 cup milk
1 cup water
1/4 sugar
1 tsp vanilla
ice cubes (10-12)

Blend all ingredients, except ice cubes. Continue blending adding one ice cube at a time until smooth. Serve immediately. For pops: pour into molds and freeze. OR pour into ice cube trays and once partially frozen, insert a toothpick into center of each.

Enjoy!
