I don't know what the weather is like everywhere else, but for us the summer heat is still KILLER! One of our favorite summer treats to make (who am I kidding, we make these all year!) are fruit smoothies. I basically took the orange-julius recipe I memorized in Mrs. Wayman's 5th grade class & added to it, and the result is to die for! I'm 100% serious about the 5th grade thing - we went on a mini-field trip to some lady's house who taught us how to make cinnamon rolls & orange julius, and my life has been all the better for it. And now, yours will be, too!
5-6 oz frozen orange juice concentrate
1 c. milk
1 c. water
1/2 c. sugar
1/2. tsp vanilla
1 c. strawberries
1/2. c. blueberries
1 ripe banana
15-20 ice cubes
Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until completely mixed & smooth. If consistency is too runny, put in freezer for 10 minutes, or add more ice cubes.
*Add any other fruits you want!
