Do you remember heading down to the local mall during your teenage years to get an Orange Julius? Are you craving that sweet treat with it's irresistible orange flavor? This creamy drink is perfect for breakfast, brunch or a hot summer day!
Why You'll Love This Recipe
- No raw eggs! No egg whites!
- Not watered down like other recipes!
- Better than Orange Julius's!
- Excellent summer refreshment for the whole family!
- Water? - Nope, no water. Believe it or not but ice is water. Adding additional water, waters down the flavor.
- Orange Julius - This recipe uses orange juice concentrate. You cannot use already mixed, diluted orange juice nor fresh orange juice.
- Milk - I use 2% but whole milk would absolutely work too! Coconut milk or almond milk may be used in place of the milk.
- Vanilla - I prefer pure vanilla extract but imitation is fine too!
Step by Step Instructions
- Pour the cup milk, 6 oz orange juice concentrate, ¼ cup white sugar, teaspoon vanilla extract....
- And 2 cups ice cubes in a blender cup or pitcher.
- Put the lid on and blend until smooth.
- Pour the now frothy orange drink into individual glasses and serve!
- NOTE - if the flavor is a bit too strong for you, blend in more ice.
It's best freshly made however, I have made it several times, poured it into cups, popped them in the freezer, got them out about 15 minutes before serving them and they were totally fine. I wouldn't freeze the orange julius in a large single portion though because it would take to lost to thaw out enough to drink.
