*Copycat* Orange Julius

I am a big fan of Orange Julius drinks - the original orangey, creamy, dreamy, cool, and refreshing beverage is always on my "I want" list when I visit the mall. It's not something I get to indulge in very often, but it is something I always look forward to when I know a mall visit is coming up!

I was very excited when I found the recipe for this via Pinterest on Sarah Lynn's Sweets and they were so good!! I tweaked the recipe a little bit below as I thought there was too much sweetener in the original, but otherwise I though these were really tasty, creamy, and delicious. I found the flavor of this to be just about perfect, and definitely a fantastic "copycat" recipe so I can enjoy the flavor of Orange Julius at home whenever I'm in the mood for one!

The recipe below makes enough for about 2 really big drinks, or 3 normal sized drinks so I don't recommend doubling unless you want a REALLY big batch (a doubled batch wouldn't have fit in my blender!) So, you'll only need half of a regular sized can of frozen orange juice concentrate. I used Stevia in the raw for my sweetener, though the original recipe calls for regular sugar. Use whatever you have available and prefer.
