It's a mall frozen favorite -- the Orange Julius. While it is incredibly tasty, it can also pack pounds on your waistline. Rebekah Greiman of "Potholes & Pantyhose" blog has "skinny-fied" it using Stevia. "This a delicious drink without any of the spare tire conversion," she said. "This Skinny Orange Julius is great just as a beverage, but can also be frozen and eaten as Orange Sherbet-(a skinny alternative to icecream)!"
