2 cups of fresh squeezed orange juice
2 oz irish moss (cleaned well, soaked, rinsed, and drained)
1/4 cup of macademia nuts
2 oranges, peeled
6 TBSP vanilla water*
2 TBSP agave nectar (to taste) -optional
Blend the irish moss with 1 cup of OJ until smooth and creamy. Then add the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth.
Vanilla water is 3 fresh (soft) whole vanilla beans blended with 1 cup of water. I make this up and it lasts me at least a month in the fridge. You could use vanilla extract or scrape a vanilla bean, but you'd need to experiment with the amounts. I like my Orange Julius very vanilla and I love seeing the little vanilla speckles in it.
I enjoy mine over ice with a straw for an authentic "hanging at the mall when I was 16" experience.
