Tried and true recipe in my trusty new Vitamix Blender that my husband bought for us :) I decided to make an Orange Julius and wasn't too sure on how to make it, so I decided to make my own rendition on it.
Vitamix Orange Julius:
2 to 3 scoops of either Vanilla or Strawberry Ice Cream
1/2 to 1 cup of OJ
5 to 6 cubes of Ice
Blend til mixed together.. start slow then gradually turn the knob to 10 then set on high for about 10 to 20 sec. Then turn off the high button and gradually turn the knob to 1. Then turn off the machine.
Depending on how much you decided to put in it makes about 3 good sized glasses. Mine was only 2...
Also if you have an old fashioned blender that works too. It might take some work but it will do the same thing as the Vitamix.
FYI Don't try to make juice with the old fashioned blender though :) I've done it and it doesn't seem to do the job as well. Makes it chunky.
Total Time: none :) Active Time: 3 to 4 mins Number Serves: 2 to 3 Equipment: Vitamix or an Old Fashioned Blender
Strawberry Ice Cream
Scoop the vanilla or strawberry ice cream into the blender, then add the sliced and peeled orange, pour the orange juice, add the banana, add ice. Then blend till smooth.
