What is an Orange Julius?
Hello, it’s me Lily – again! Did you miss me? I sure missed you! How’s your week going? Mine was really great! This week my mom’s assistant, Jezzy, came to town. We’ve gone to lots of fun places with her. Today we went to Sweet Paris in Rice Village. Speaking of sweet, I can’t wait to share today’s Orange Julius recipe with you!

I didn’t know what an Orange Julius was until I tried it just recently. My mom and dad had gotten this drink many times before, usually from the Dairy Queen at the mall! It’s kind of like an orange juice smoothie, except it’s more creamy and frothy. It tastes like an orange creamsicle! What’s cool is that I could make this recipe by myself. My mom just helped gather all the ingredients and then I put it in the blender. It tastes so good and all my brothers and sisters loved it!
How to make Orange Julius:
The orange julius ingredients include frozen orange juice, milk, water, sugar, vanilla, and ice cubes. Luckily, we had pretty much all of these ingredients at our house already! All I had to do was throw them into the blender and blend it up until it was nice and smooth. That’s it! Easy peasy.
How to make orange julius without concentrate? If you don’t have orange juice concentrate, you can freeze an equal amount of fresh orange juice in an ice cube tray (or a glass pan, and then break it into pieces) and put that in the blender with the other ingredients. Using fresh OJ and adding more ice will just change the texture and flavor, which isn’t what you want!
Can you freeze orange julius? If you have leftovers (which you probably wont ;)) you could store it in the fridge for a day or so in an airtight container, but it’s much better to have it fresh!
I cannot wait to make this orange julius recipe again. It really is so simple and tastes so delicious! I have a feeling we will be making this, as well as the Mixed Berry Julius, a lot on hot summer days in Arizona!! 😉
