Orange Julius Recipe

Speaking of blending, today I finally found the perfect recipe to create Orange Julius smoothies. The 3rd one I’ve tried seems to be just to my liking, the first one called for eggs and was straight barf-o-lishious, the second was ok but quite bitter.

Paul's Famous Orange Julius

It’s been a while since I’ve had a “real” Orange Julius but from what I remember, my third one was quite close to those. Check it:


  • 6 oz. frozen orange juice concentrate
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 8-9 ice cubes


  1. Combine all ingredients except ice cubes in blender.
  2. Blend for about 1-2 minutes, adding ice cubes one at a time.

I know, that’s a lot of sugar, right? Yeah, no wonder it’s so good

A reader emailed me a suggestion to use powdered sugar to make the drink a bit creamier. I’ve been using 1/4 cup regular sugar and 1/4 powdered sugar and it’s fantastic!

    I have had that recipie for all my life. My mom clipped it from a Harmons thing like 30 years ago. It is quite tasty! You should try it with other juices as well.

    Warning: don’t eat an entire batch in one sitting yourself. As much as you will be tempted, you WILL feel ill.

    I just wanna Holla Back at my sista Kyoka. Dis drinks da bomb with Mad Dog. Yo, check it, when I wants to get my swerve on, I holla at my woman “WOMAN! You better get your ghetto butt in da kitchen and make me my orange julius!” That’s what I’m talkin bout.


  16. Tom Daley says:

    Oh. Well why didn’t she just say so?

  17. Kyoka Shanee says:

    Thanks for the props my brotha. But if my man was to holla at me like dat – he be wearin that OJ and dat would be the end of his appreciatin my DD’s!!

  18. Tom Daley says:

    I agree with Kyoka. A man should treat his woman right, and give her all the respect she is due.

  19. Twista says:

    Look here Uncle Tom. You ain’t one of them fruit pickers r u?

  20. Tom Daley says:

    You should learn to appreciate a woman, Mr. Twista.
    The fact that you are incapable of carrying on a normal conversation without stooping to slurs against a man’s masculinity speaks volumes about you – not about me.
    How easy it is for people to say and do things online whereas they would not consider such behavior in polite society.

    Interesting conversation. It’s to bad that you all find it necessary to speak such a foriegn language, though.
