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.
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
- Combine all ingredients except ice cubes in blender.
- 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!
