Orange Julius Copycat

It is starting to warm up around here and we are loving it!  It is so nice to come out of winter hibernation and enjoy some sunshine.  We had a lot of fun this afternoon just running in the sprinklers with our friends and splashing in the kiddie pool.  I made everyone  some of this amazing homemade orange julius and it is about as close to the real thing as you will get!  So refreshing on a hot day and amazingly easy!  Orange julius are one of my favorite things and I love that I can make it at home.  We will be having this a lot this summer!
