My mind has been taking me waaaay back this week. I’ve been thinking about my first real job in the mall. It was a one hour photo shop and I loved everything about it. The people I worked with were fun, I got to develop photos and got my first taste of freedom in those pay cheques. Sometimes I see people around town and think to myself, I saw you grow up! Rolls and rolls of baby pictures. I miss those 35mm days.
In this particular mall was an Orange Julius that me and my coworkers frequented quite often. You know that place that charges $4 for a bit of fruit, ice, water and some sort of mysterious white powder? I still drink those by the way. I just tilt my head and squint my eyes every time I watch them make it. Listen 16 year old boy behind the counter, Tell me your secret!
This orange freeze is a mystery free frozen drink. Its a nice balance of sweet and tart without adding any extra sugar.
- 1 cup orange juice
- ¼ cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 frozen ripe banana
- ¼ tsp vanilla extract
- 4 ice cubes or ¼ cup crushed ice
- Place all ingredients in a blender or bullet.
