Citrus Cream Smoothie

One of my fondest memories as a child involves going to the mall with my mother and stopping by the Orange Julius stand.  We would always each get an Orange (or some other fruit flavored) Julius and walk around the mall, shopping and chatting.  To this day, I still will stop for the occasional drink, savoring the memories of my childhood tradition with my mother. 

(Once again) Giada De Laurentiis comes through with her Citrus Cream Smoothie, which isn't supposed to be like any kind of Julius, but comes awfully close.  I followed this recipe and had my own version in about 30 minutes.  I do love to squeeze my own orange juice (and once you start, fresh squeezed tastes so amazing, it is hard to go back to the stuff in a carton), so add about 5 minutes to the total cooking time for that.  And since this recipe required orange zest, I had a good excuse to buy a whole bag of oranges.  You can also purchase simple syrup at any beverage store (if that is a step you want to skip).  Enjoy!
