Good Morning Sunshine Smoothie

When my mom would take my sisters and I to the mall as kids I can only imagine how much we complained and dreaded the shopping trip.  To reward us (and herself) my mom would treat us to an Orange Julius.   For those of you who have missed out on the Orange Julius experience, it’s a wonderful blend of  orange, vanilla and cream.  When I have this smoothie, it brings me back to (now) fond memories with my mom and sisters.  It also doesn’t hurt that it feels and tastes like summer, perfectly light and refreshing!
