Strawberry Julius and Orange Julius

13 Jul

So refreshing on a hot summer day.

 

This morning I made a mistake and walked a couple of miles to the library.  At 9:00 it wasn’t that hot out but by 11:00 it was unbearably hot!  As soon as we got home I made this Strawberry Julius Smoothie recipe.  Although we had taken water along I wanted to ensure that Eli had enough fluids.  I knew this would do just the trick.  It’s a little sweeter than our typical Green Smoothies. 🙂  Oh and it tastes wonderful by the way! 

Simply combine all ingredients in a blender:

  • 2 cups strawberries (about 1 container)
  • 1 cup of milk (skim tastes great)
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 16 ice cubes
  • 1/4 c. sugar or your choice of sweetener-You can omit this but the hubby sure enjoys his with a kick of sugar. 🙂 
  • Enjoy! 

If you don’t have strawberries on hand you can also make an Orange Julius. 

  • 1 can frozen orange juice concentrate
  • 1/2 c. Cream or milk
  • 1/4 c. sugar
  • 4 c. ice

Both of these smoothies would make a wonderful treat for your hubby after a long hard day at work or mowing the grass.  I have such fond memories of being a newlywed and making Brandon an Orange Julius while he mowed the yard at our first house.  🙂
