An Orange Julius is one drink that is totally refreshing no matter what time of year.   This beverage is packed with vitamin C from all the orange juice concentrate, lime and banana.

At our house, we love to serve this on Christmas morning along side our ham breakfast casserole and our grapefruit and cranberry fruit salad.  It’s been a tradition for quite a few years, and my Busy Baker 🍞 always looks forward to it.

You can dress it up to look special by having a sugared rim, putting citrus slices on the rim, sprinkling orange zest on top, twisting a thin orange peel, and adding colorful straws.  Serve this special drink chilled and to enjoy it at its fullest.
