Easy Orange Julius
I’ve been obsessed with smoothies and drinks for breakfast lately. I think it’s partly because fresh fruit has been plentiful and cheap at the grocery store, so I’ve been stocking up! It’s making me really excited for summer.
I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love orange Julius. I love the traditional version, but I love adding whatever fruit I have on hand to mix things up as well. I usually always add a frozen banana because it makes it thicker and almost creamier. I also love adding frozen strawberries or pineapple.
The secret ingredient to this recipe is adding a little bit of powdered sugar. It adds a fluffy, smooth texture and taste that sends this drink over the top!
