Frosty Orange Juice

Frosty Orange Juice (Orange Julius) @themerrythought
This frosty orange juice (an Orange Julius copycat recipe) is a classic drink that’s perfect to serve at a brunch! It’s cool, creamy, sweet and loved by kids & adults! I’ve been wanting to make this drink for the blog for a while now, and once we decided to have “Brunch Week“, I knew this drink would be a great recipe to share! Another great thing about it – it’s really quick & easy to throw together, which is definitely a plus if you’re busy prepping for a brunch. It is best served immediately though – so make sure to save it for last!

After I made this and had my photos done, the boys were more than willing to be taste-testers to make sure it was just right!  After Lincoln took a few sips, he told me that maybe I should try to sell the recipe to McDonald’s, because it was so good and I could probably make a lot of money off it!  Haaa!  So Lincoln gives this drink his full approval! And he keeps asking when I’m going to make it again! 🙂

What drinks do you enjoy at brunch? I’m all the about the coffee, always! Caitlin likes some fresh squeezed orange juice or a mimosa!
