Orange Julius

2/3 cup frozen OJ concentrate
1 c. milk
1 1/2 c. water
1/2 c. sugar (can use less)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
10-12 ice cubes

Mix in blender and enjoy

Homemade Popsicles

1 cup OJ concentrate (slightly thawed works best)
1 cup vanilla ice cream

1/2 cup chopped strawberries

Blend OJ and ice cream until smooth.  Fill popsicle molds half-way.  Drop in one set of fruit chunks.  Jiggle a bit to submerge.  Drop in other set of fruit.  Fill molds rest of the way and add handles.  Freeze.  (Amounts are approximate...adjust as needed).  Experiment with different fruits.

My favourite summer treat is an easy 3-ingredient fruit smoothie:

2/3 cup apple juice
1/2 a banana
Fill up blender to 2 cup mark with your choice of frozen fruit (cut up fresh fruit ahead of time and freeze if you want the really fresh summer taste!)
Blend all ingredients together. Makes one large serving.

What I like about this recipe is that there's no added ice cubes as the fruit is already frozen.
