Summer List 2011

So it seems everyone has been busy making their summer lists thanks to Meg :)
I had good intentions of making one last year but the summer just got away from me.
I work better with lists. This will work ;)

One thing is crossed off already-although we will be doing it many more times-is making popsicles.

This is actually a picture of some Orange Julius drinks we made the other day-thanks to Cassie Donlen for posting the recipe on facebook...I just couldn't get them out of my head until I made them.
It made so much we had plenty of leftovers-even with neighbor kids beinig here-
So what do you do w/ leftover orange julius?
Make popsicles!
Can you say YUM? wow. Almost like a pushup...
Here's the recipe I grabbed online that was the same as Cassie's:

  • 1 can (6 ounces) frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed

  • 1 cup milk

  • 1 cup water

  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 10 to 12 ice cubes

  • {I doubled this recipe since frozen OJ cans tend to be 12 oz.}

  • In a blender, combine the orange juice, milk, water, sugar and vanilla. Cover and blend until smooth. With blender running, add ice cubes, one at a time, through the opening in lid. Blend until smooth. Serve immediately. Yield: 4-5 servings.

    *I think the next time I make them as popsicles I'll have to add a little vanilla ice cream when I blend to make it a smidge creamier. Otherwise-they rocked!
