Sugar Kiss Melon Julius

 

Ever since I can remember, my dad has talked about the fantastic Orange Julius he made as a teenager in the 50's, when he worked at the local ice cream store.  And as kids, he served these tasty, tangy, frothy orange smoothie-like treats, to me and my brother often.  

 

So when I discovered Sugar Kiss Melons, one of the first recipes that came to my mind was a new take on the Orange Julius.  I knew the combination of the sweet, soft melon with the tang of the orange citrus would be a perfect match.  And it is. Delicious!
