Orange Julius

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 cups water
1 tsp vanilla
1 6 oz can frozen orange juice concentrate
1 tray of ice cubes

Mix in blender

I got this recipe from my cousin, Susan Harris, many years ago when I was in college. I like to make several batches at a time by using a Costco 16 oz can of frozen orange juice concentrate. Then I freeze the extra drinks in 5 1/2 oz cups with lids from Smart and Final. Then when I want a Orange Julius, I'll defrost it slightly to a slush in by putting it in the microwave for 20 to 45 seconds. (depending on the strength of you microwave.)
