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!


Units Scale
  • 6 oz Orange Juice concentrate (1/2 a can)
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 cups Ice Cubes


  1. Pour the orange juice concentrate, milk, sugar, vanilla, and ice cubes into your blender.
  2. Blend until smooth.
  3. Serve and enjoy!


  • While orange julius is best freshly made 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.
  • If you find the flavor to be a bit too strong blend in more ice.  Do not add water.
