Have I mentioned how much I love my Blendtec? I have been through a few blenders in my life, but no other blender has me trying to find excuses to use it! It is just so much fun to pretend I’m doing my own episode of “Will it blend?” Anyhow, this Peach Banana Orange Julius is one of those excuses to use my Blendtec!
First, I gotta say, it is HOT!! So of course I want to stick my whole body in the freezer…unfortunately, my freezer isn’t that big. So, I’ve got to find reasons to use the beautiful ice in my freezer.
Growing up a favorite Sunday evening tradition was egg sandwiches with Orange Julius. My kids love Orange Julius just as much as I do, but as I was getting out my Blendtec, I saw the bananas getting brown spots and I knew my kids wouldn’t be eating them.
Then it came to me, Banana Orange Julius. And then with another stroke of genius, Peach Banana Orange Julius. It sounded divine. I asked the family and got mixed responses. They didn’t really get a vote anyway, because I already decided to make it.
And let me tell you, it did not disappoint. Oh my goodness! It is delicious! It is the perfect drink to cool you down with a sweet little something. And I love the little ice chips I can crunch between my teeth — that was always my favorite part of Orange Julius when I was a kid.
So whip up a batch of this. Your family will clamor around you and tell you how wonderful you are. And if they don’t–who said you have to share?!
