Orange Julius

Every Friday night, we have a movie night with the kids. 
During the summer I make them a frothy Orange Julius and a big bowl of popcorn.
It is so refreshing and delicious...but what I love even more is that I make it with kefir.




Shhh...the kids don't know!
You can totally make this with milk and it tastes wonderful, too...if you don't have kefir on hand.
It also makes a delicious addition to Sunday breakfast!

Kefir Orange Julius
3/4 can of frozen orange juice
3 cups kefir
1 cup milk {4 cups if NOT using kefir}
1 tsp. nutmeg
2TBS vanilla
honey to taste

Mix thoroughly in a blender until frothy.
Serve right away and garnish with a little nutmeg on top.

Have a blessed Sunday.

This looks so delicious! I'm going to try it this week. :-) It reminds me of my childhood days... we lived over two hours away from a mall, but when we would go to the big city, we would always get an orange julius there before heading home.

Thanks so much for sharing...it looks so delicious and my daughter (who is frequently on antibiotics would definitely benefit from the kefir!)

Wow! I just love my kefir, and this looks like a recipe I will enjoy!
I drink it every day and it has healed my gums, taken all pain away from my sensitive teeth, given me lots of energy, and taken away every sign od menopause! Thank you God for kefir!

Did you use water kefir or milk kefir?
