Diabetes-Friendly Orange Julius Clone!

  One of the things I've missed the most after being diagnosed with the 'beetus is a good old-fashioned Orange Julius! I used to love these things - Orange Julius, Strawberry Julius, of course with a banana in it. For years I've wondered how I could get one without spiking my blood sugar, and that, of course, led me to develop a sugar-free recipe. I'm 99% sure this is accurate in terms of flavor and texture. 

Note that this recipe contains a raw egg. If you are concerned about consuming raw eggs, you can substitute pasteurized egg whites or egg beaters instead. Also, it does contain milk so it's not completely sugar-free (a cup of 2% milk has about 12g of sugar from the lactose). 

I expect substituting 2 packets of strawberry drink mix would work to create a functional strawberry Julius, but it might taste more "artificial" than actual strawberry puree would. Likewise, you can add a half banana to it if you like but that will certainly up the carb count/sugar. 

So here it is. Enjoy. 

6 oz. cold water
1 cup milk (whole or 2%)
1 egg
1/3 cup Splenda or granulated sugar substitute of choice
6-8 ice cubes
2 tsp vanilla

Dump it all in a blender (preferably with an ice crush function). Blend until smooth and frosty. Enjoy! Makes about two tall glasses.
