Colleen’s Orange Julius

My sister Colleen was here visiting for Labor Day weekend and made me an Orange Julius
for dessert that was so delicious. It reminded me of the real orange julius we used to get from the mall that originally was loaded with fat, dairy and calories. It also tastes like a creamsicle. Here’s the recipe…

Servings: 1 person

  • One orange or tangelo
  • One cup unsweetened vanilla coconut milk (this works best but you can use unsweetened vanilla Almond milk or any other nut milk)
  • One teaspoon of vanilla
  • Half a packet of Stevia
  • Two ice cubes

Blend and enjoy your own Orange Julius.
