Dairy-Free Orange Julius

I love Orange Julius -- unfortunately, trips to the mall for this drink have been off-limits for the past year. Boy do I wish I had found this recipe earlier. It is so yummy -- and a lot cheaper to make than buy!

The original recipe, which comes from the Favorite Family Recipes blog, has milk in it, but I just substituted rice milk. Yummy! And for a little extra nutrition, I made sure to use calcium-fortified orange juice concentrate. Every little bit helps!

1 small can (6 oz.) frozen orange juice concentrate
1 cup rice milk
1 cup water
 ¼ cup sugar
2-3 tbsp. powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
about 10-11 ice cubes

In a blender, blend all ingredients except ice. Slowly add ice cubes one at a time until it reaches a “smoothie” consistency. Serve immediately.
