The Perfect Bedtime Snack

Orange Julius and Stovetop Popped Popcorn.

Can you handle two more recipes this week?

Orange Julius:
6 oz frozen orange juice concentrate (1/2 can)
1 1/2 cups milk
1 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Blend in a blender for a few minutes until it's nice and airy. Add ice cubes until desired consistency. (approximately 20-25 cubes) Pour into cups.

Warning: Brain freeze will occur if you attempt to guzzle this drink. :)

Stovetop Popped Popcorn:
Place a few tablespoons of oil in the bottom of a large pot. Add enough popcorn kernels to cover the bottom of the pot. Shake pot to coat kernels with oil. Place cover on pot, leaving it slightly ajar to allow steam to escape. Cook over medium heat until kernels are done popping. Do not shake pot or lift cover. Pour into large bowl. Salt and season as desired.

My kids love to dip their popcorn in their Orange Julius. Blech. I wouldn't recommend it, but they love it!
