Thanksgiving Treat

Today we will have my husband's
family over for our Thanksgiving feast.

One treat we will be serving up is Orange Julius,
the color is just perfect for Thanksgiving!
We used to make these when I was a kid but my friend Jenna just reminded me of them when she brought the recipe to our MOPS group.
She said her family calls them
Orange Julia after one of her best friends :)

Orange Julius
6 oz. FROZEN Orange Juice concentrate
1 Cup milk
1 Cup water
1/2 Cup sugar
1 Tablespoon vanilla
12 ice cubes

Blend until smooth

Let's see what the judges think:

They look like satisfied customers to me!!!
Hope you are still having a fun Thanksgiving Weekend!!!

I used to make these several years ago. Thanks for the reminder. We have a family brunch, tree cutting, ornament exchange and ornament making party on December 4th. Orange Julius has just been added to our menu.

Thanks for the sweet reminder. A very special friend introduced me to Orange Juliuses and she passed away from cancer a year and half ago. :( I always think of her when I see them.

I'm going to make these for my family soon and we're sure to enjoy them!

Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful. How are you feeling these days? I'm supposed to be decorating the house so I'd better get to it.

Blessings to you and your family!

I like that you all spread out Thanksgiving. What a fun tradition! Makes it more enjoyable...I love your fireplace in the background. So cozy and pretty!

ha ha the toothless grin in the picture is my very favorite! This recipe sounds delicious -- I had never even heard of a recipe to make them at home. Hope you are enjoying your holiday weekend.
