Orange Julies

Growing up, my mom use to make homemade Orange Julius drinks for my sister and I. It was simple: orange juice, ice, and powdered soy milk. Or so I remember.

When the husband joked about ordering an Orange Julius at the mall, I boastfully said I could make a better one! He took me up on the offer, doubting you could remake one. Over the last two days I made 4 different versions tweeking them to his liking. So while this is named after my mother, Julie, it's really made to Brian's liking.
This sweet orange drink is great for summer days. We're also going to try it using a protein powder for a meal replacer.

Vegan Orange Julies:
1/4 Cup Orange Juice Concentrate
2 Tablespoons Agave Syrup (don't sub for maple syrup, try simple syrup)
1 Cup Soy/Rice/Almond... Milk
1/4 teaspoon Vanilla
2 Tablespoons Soy Milk Powder
1 Cup Ice

Put all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

Serving: 1
