Orange Julius

Creamy, dreamy orange-vanilla-slush. This drink takes only minutes to make and tastes just like the original Orange Julius!

An Orange Julius has always been one of my favorite treats. I don't make these often because I am not normally a juice drinker, but when I do make them they're always light, summery-cool, and refreshing. That's something we all need a little of right now, in my opinion.

Orange Julius

1 cup milk 
1 cup cold water
6 oz. frozen orange juice concentrate
1/4 cup sugar 
1 teaspoon vanilla
8-12 ice cubes

Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. I use the ice crush setting on our blender... because it is the only button on it that still works! Also, I put all of the ingredients in my blender excluding the ice at first, and then I add ice until it reaches the 4 cup mark on my blender. This drink makes for a great addition to a hearty breakfast or late summer night dessert.

Recipe Yield: 4 (1-cup servings) or 2 larger serving

  1. Ohh...I love Orange Julius(es?)! This recipe looks so simple, too. I love it when that happens! And...I am a big fan of nertz. In my college days, it was a weekly tradition and our games were intense! I'll have to look into Perpetual Commotion now!

    1. We seriously love Perpetual Commotion! I'm so glad you stopped by Becky :)


Speak your mind! I'd love to answer any questions you might have.
