Tangerine Julius | Add a Pinch

Pin It

I love citrus juices this time of the year. They are an instant pick me up with their bright flavor. The other morning, I looked over at our fruit bowl and noticed I had a large bag of tangerines that I would make the perfect little breakfast treat. So, I made this delicious tangerine julius that you all have just got to try.

In less than 5 minutes, I had my tangerines juiced and ready to star in this delicious breakfast drink.

I added a little milk, sugar, vanilla, and some ice to my blender and watched the ingredients quickly become this frothy, magical consistency that had my kitchen smelling like the moment on Soaring at Walt Disney World when you fly over the orange groves. {I can’t get enough of that part!}

So, the next time you are in the grocery store, pick up a bag of tangerines and make this tangerine julius for breakfast the next morning. Better yet, make it for your next special occasion like Valentine’s Day, a birthday, or anniversary. You will love how special your morning feels!

Here’s my recipe.

  1. I think I like citrus drinks more in the winter than in the summer. I guess because I feel like it brings me to life when all I want to do is be in a blankey. This sounds so good!
