Orange Julius is a drink that used to appear in malls everywhere. I loved drinking this delightful, frothy drink. Dave Oberg graciously submitted this recipe.
I can remember going to malls with my Grandmother’s, and the highlight of these shopping trips was stopping by the food court and enjoying a treat from the mall. I always remember walking up to the Orange Julius store because lots of oranges were cut open, and the place looked beautiful. Then I can remember getting one of these frosty drinks and enjoying it completely. At home orange juice was never like this. It was special, and I loved getting one of these.
Orange Julius used to be a fixture in malls everywhere. You may not be able to run down to your local mall and order one. You can make one anytime now.
- 2/3 cup orange juice concentrate
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 6 ice cubes (approx 1 1/2 cups ice)
Put all ingredients in a blender, cover and blend until smooth.
Hints: If you already have premixed orange juice, use 1 2/3 cups of that instead of the concentrate and water. If your ice cubes are from a tray, you may want to pre-crush them a bit because the ice blends better if it is not in large pieces.Print Recipe
