This is not an Orange Julius

I loved hitting up the food court for an Orange Julius when I was a kid. As an adult, they are just way too sweet for me. That is saying a lot because I would mainline sugar if I could.


I love that this recipe is refreshing, like fresh squeezed orange juice but it only requires one orange to make 4 small servings (2 big servings). I also love that it has a satisfying, frothy foam on top that makes it feel like a special treat rather than boring old juice.

You should serve this at your next breakfast!

Before I get to the recipe, I want to talk about that box in the back of the photo. Do you see it? Do you know what it is?

Well, check my instagram and you will find out! You can get your own Kitty Cat Coin Bank here.
