Could my morning look any prettier, brighter or tastier? No, no, I think not. There is nothing quite like an Orange Julius and delicious pastry to make the start of a new day better. Nothing.
An Orange Julius just might be Levi's favorite beverage of all time. And mall shopping might just be Levi's least favorite past time of all time (I hear this is typical for boy's). Mall shopping becomes acceptable with the promise of his favorite drink, the Orange Julius. So, it's with great pride that I tell you all...Levi says my version of an Orange Julius is almost (with a bitty, bitty almost) as good as the real thing. Y'all. That's a compliment! Bottle that up and take it to the mall!
The traditional Orange Julius recipe is a special concoction of dried egg product, sugared waters, and other such things. Or so I hear. All ingredients I have no time for. My version is much simpler...delicious Florida orange juice, ice, ice cream, vanilla, sugar, and the secret ingredient...malted milk powder. All ingredients that are easily found at my local Walmart...no searching high and low! And, and, and...you can get caramel rolls to go with!
- Vanilla ice cream
- Powdered sugar
- Malted milk powder
- Orange juice
Glorious, I'm telling you! I put the delicious cinnamon rolls into the oven to bake and mix up my Orange Julius while I wait. Okay, the blender does all the work. But the best recipes are the kind that allows you to sit for the majority of the "baking", wouldn't you agree?
In not too long my Orange Julius is blended, my rolls are baked perfectly, and I can sit and enjoy my handiwork. I call the family, pour my delicious Orange Julius into a couple of glasses and serve with homemade cinnamon rolls for the perfect morning. Totally. Happy family. Happy mom. Fast, easy, and tasty!
