Morir Soñando

This drink from the Dominican Republic is very refreshing during a hot summer day. It is sweet, filling and nourishing. A Latino version of the Orange Julius, if you will : )

2 cups fresh squeezed orange juice
2 cups milk (I like whole, because it tastes richer, but skim is fine as well)
1/4 cup sugar (or to taste)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Lots of crushed ice!

Option 1:

Mix sugar, milk and vanilla until sugar has incorporated into liquid. Add orange juice and whisk. Pour over ice and serve with a a straw!

Option 2:

Follow steps from option 1, but add to blender and mix until smooth.


  1. That looks so refreshing right now!!! I miss those orange julius.

  2. This drink looks so luscious and refreshing! I am going to make it right now!

  3. Sounds quite interesting. If you said it tasted like those old school Flintstone sherbet pops, we would've been totally sold! It's worth a try.

  4. The moment you said 'Orange Julius', I was hooked! It looks soooo good - I can't wait to try it!

  5. I just made some it's really good! really everybody should give it a try.


Tried my recipe? Please let me know how it turned out for you! Be honest (and kind!)
