orange Strawberry Julius

Misha and I were running errands, and we were craving something cool and sweet when we got home. I remembered the after-school snack that my mom regularly made for my brother and I, and it sounded perfect. Usually we made it with just orange, but sometimes other frozen fruit was thrown in there instead of ice cubes.

Orange-Strawberry Julius
My mom


1/2 cup cold milk
1/4 cup frozen orange juice concentrate
2 Tablespoons sugar
Frozen Strawberries (If you don’t want strawberries, substitute some other frozen fruit or ice cubes here).
vanilla (optional)


  1. Mix ingredients in a blender. Add more milk or strawberries as required. I usually mix to taste.
  2. Serve immediately and enjoy!

I need to keep more frozen fruit on hand so I can make these as a snack on a regular basis.

Baileys Fruit Dip

Baily's Fruit Dip

I was trying to think of a “healthy diet friendly dessert”. Fruit sounded good, but I felt like it wouldn’t be enough just bringing some fruit over when Misha’s Aunt and Uncle were providing dinner. I remembered this fruit dip from That Girl’s blog.

Baileys Fruit Dip
Paved with Good Intentions.

1 tub coolwhip (regular size)
1 5.9 oz package instant vanilla pudding
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup Baileys (or more if you want)


  1. Defrost the coolwhip.
  2. Mix the coolwhip, pudding, and milk.
  3. Add the Baileys and taste to see if it is strong enough. If not add a bit more (I added just a tad).
  4. Mix to combine
  5. Chill until ready to serve.
  6. Serve with strawberries or other fruit, and enjoy! (We did strawberries and peaches, the peaches would have been better had they been more flavorful peaches, but it was good)

This recipe is a keeper, and I have the leftovers in the fridge. I must get more fruit to dip this with. It makes quite a bit, so next time unless it is for a large group I might half it.
