Hi Gooseberry Patch friends!
I'm Brandie and I'm so thrilled to be guest blogging today. I have had a long love affair with my Gooseberry Patch cookbooks...they are the highlight of my cookbook collection. Thank you so very much to Gooseberry Patch for having me over today.
I have a really fun recipe to share with y'all today...it's a fun way to drink your morning O.J. and it may bring back some memories for many of y'all too!
Frosty Orange Juice...
This cookbook is full of recipes for the sometimes forgotten meals: breakfast and brunch. These are recipes that you can whip up in a flash or ones that take a little longer when you're just having a lazy morning at home. So there really is something for everyone in here.
I decided to share with you a recipe from this cookbook that immediately caught my eye. The title of this recipe is called Frosty Orange Juice, but after making this, I realized this tasted a whole lot like an Orange Julius.
Do you remember Orange Julius?
It brings back a lot of memories of the 80's for me. Oh the hair! Anyway, I suppose some malls still have an Orange Julius stand. All the ones by me closed years ago. But they were famous for their most popular drink, the Orange Julius.
It's a cool, frothy, orange-tastic drink, with a touch of vanilla. After tasting this, I can now make it at home! It whips up in a snap so it is perfect for even your busiest mornings. No trip to the mall required!
Here's what you need to get started:
1 (12 oz.) can frozen orange juice concentrate, partially thawed
1 cup milk
1 cup water
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
12 ice cubes
Put all your ingredients into the blender. I like to put the liquids in first, then the ice, because my blender seems to mix it up best that way.
Don't forget to put the lid on!
Then process all ingredients together until frothy and pour into glasses.
Look at that frosty goodness...yum!
Thanks so much for stopping by today, Brandie!
