Your recipe for
Orange Julius is wonderful. Thank you I did
a Yahoo search especially for this recipe, so
this is my first visit. I will be visiting
often. Thank you for your hard work. Maggie
OK, I'm now
addicted to this recipe! Hope everyone tries it
Thanks for the
recipe you can substitute soy milk gals
I learned this
recipe in a home economics class, but had lost
it. When I found this one, it was just like the
one I loved from school!
These were very
easy to make and wonderful. My family loves them.
No sooner did we get a batch made and the kids
were asking for more. They sucked it right down.
Thanks for the recipe.
use two cups of fresh strawberries, instead of
orange juice; and one cup of vanilla/orange swirl
ice cream, instead of milk. Thank you for the
refreshing drink recipe.
I Like it a bit
more with honey instead of sugar- about 2
tablespoons- give it a try!
This is EXACTLY
like the original! I use Splenda instead of
sugar. Thank you!
You can make it
without sugar and it still tastes good. Also Put
some vodka or Blue UV and it tastes even better
This tastes just
like the kind at the mall! My husband went crazy
and my 18 month old drank it down like candy!
MMM..just like I
remembered them. After moving to the UK, I really
missed these! Found your recipe site today and
this is the first recipe I tried. Big hit with me
and my 18 month daughter! I made a second batch
lowering the amount of milk and adding live bio
Delicious! I am a
foods teacher and I use this recipe in the
beginning of all my trimesters the kids love it!
I've used 1/4 cup
powdered milk and you get a similar result for
the Orange Julius.
What a great
recipe! I actually substituted 2 ounces of the
orange juice concentrate with pina colada mix,
and it tasted so good!
i'm only 12 and
not very good at recipes but this one is a cinch!
someone who worked at an Orange Julius to tell me
what that 'secret white powder' was that they
added to just about every drink. Incredible
finely ground coconut was the secret all along.
After hearing what the powder was, it almost made
sense that it was in their drinks. How to obtain
any, other than knocking over an Orange Julius
stand, is beyond me. But for those of you with
good food processors out there, the challenge is
passed to you.
Your recipe for
the orange julius is the bizomb - I mean for
I had a friend who
worked at orange julius and she informed me that
the powder in question is coconut powder, also
she told me they use powdered sugar, not
This was the best
julius recipe ever! Especially with addition of
strawberries. I definitely like it better than
the "Orange Julius" stores! Thanx for
This is delicious!
Far better than regular orange juice, and so easy
So delicious and
easy! The kids love it! If you want that subtle
coconut taste like the original, add a tiny dash
of coconut extract.
After reading the
comments on coconut powder, I tried using coconut
milk. Coconut powder or coconut milk in tin cans
are readily available in Asian food stores. It
turned out wonderful. This ingredient gave it
that unique aroma. Additionally, I used sweetened
condensed milk in place of sugar. I recommend
more than just 8 ice cubes. Better just
substitute all of the water with ice and blend to
the desired texture. Throw in some banana,
strawberry, raspberry, etc, into the mix, lovely.
I used splenda
instead of sugar but still its great my kids love
and ask me to make more for them.
if your want to
add the coconut just use a coffee grounder it
I have been using
this recipe for some time and everyone I make it
for really enjoys it. The only thing I change is
I add 3 egg whites and then blend and it makes
the drink frothy like the original.
Getting ready for
a hurricane here in Florida and exhausted from
cutting/hanging plywood. Thought how great it
would be to have an Orange Julius about now.
Found your site -- had the ingredients -- mixed
them up -- WONDERFUL! My husband, daughter and I
practically inhaled them! So refreshing! Thanx so
much. We're ready to tackle the rest of our
i found your site
through google, and my son (19mon) loves the
drink. a good way to get him to drink his milk
and get all his vitamins. I just took out the
sugar so he is not all hyper. thanks again.
This taste just
like the real one... but at home!
just for the
record... the secret powder is nothing more then
powdered sugar i use it all the time. also her is
my recipe for that i changed alitte: 3cups
tropicana orange juice (others wont taste the
same), 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream,
2tablespoons powder sugar. mix in blender and
make 2 16 oz glasses
I tried it with
Orange, and it was the same as I remember it. I'm
now trying different juices to mix in with it.
Fruit Punch is tastes awesome.
I loved this
recipe!!! I tried a first batch of the recipe and
liked it so much I was inspired to create my own
flavor! The second batch I add about 1/4 cup of
So Cal Strawberry Daiquiri Mix and blended it
into the original recipe. For the third batch I
added 1/4 cup of the strawberry mix and a whole
banana. I loved all three but I loved the third
concoction the best!!!! I would also recommend to
use more ice cubes. Thanks for the great
You can find the
powdered coconut milk in some Asian or Thai
markets. I had bought it for about 85 cents. It
is a product of Thailand. It comes in a small can
about the size of a tuna fish can. It is great to
use in lots of other stuff too.
That was the best Orange Julius recipe! Thank you. I substituted a
half cup of coconut milk for half of the milk and it was delicious.
This recipe was fantastic. I also added 1 Tsp. of Coconut extract as
well and it made it taste delicious! Very similar to the real thing!
I will definitely make this often. Thank you!
actually ran out of vanilla extract, but I had some vanilla pudding
mix in my cupboard. Believe it or not, when you use the pudding mix
instead, it turns out a lot better, in my opinion. It has a creamier
texture with all the taste. I'd recommend trying this if you haven't
thought this made the perfect party drink, especially with a slice
of pineapple on the side! It's perfect!
This is such a great recipe, I learned it in school, and lost it! I
came here and this one rocks. Just so every one knows you can have
any type of frozen juice, and it works. You may have to add more
sugar though. Also to make it bigger just add more ice cubes!
They are awe full... awfully delicious! Thanks for the recipe I LOVE
this quick, great, and simple way to enjoy my favorite orange
was thrilled to find this exact recipe. I remembered the
ingredients, but could never remember how much. This was a recipe
given to me by my home economics teacher in the 7th grade. I'm now 8
months pregnant and craved Orange Julius all of a sudden and was
thrilled to find the same recipe 13 years later!!! Thank you so
This is the best I have ever tried. Thank you for posting this!! J I
will be back for more.
VERY GOOD this was quick and easy... i know i will be making them a
I've tried a number of your recipes that are WONDERFUL . . . but the
Orange Julius doesn't taste like the original to us at all. Sorry!
made Orange Julius’s today for my 6 kids, using your recipe--but put
some meringue powder(for frosting making) into the blender with the
other ingredients. It was AWESOME! Give it a try.
The "secret ingredient" for the Orange Julius is not powdered
coconut...it's powdered milk and egg. The CACP (coconut almond cream
powder) is used in the Orange Julius smoothies such as Tripleberry
and Pina colada. Ahh...the benefits of 7 years at Dairy Queen/Orange
like to add frozen pineapple chunks (canned: Rinse under cold
running water. Put chunks in a single layer into a freezer bag &
Freeze. I use 1/2 milk & 1/2 Vanilla Yogurt. Then, 1/2 pineapple
chunks (frozen) & 1/2 frozen orange juice. Ice cubes until thick.
Adjust flavor if necessary, to get an even taste of both. NO WATER
For a healthy version try two whole oranges, peeled; handful of
icecubes; 1 cup rice milk; 2 TBS raw honey (I also made it with one
orange and substituted fresh pineapple for the other orange). Blend
in blender and YUM - reminds me of the Orange Julius' I had as a
Thnx for the recipe. I changed it a little using 4 ice cubes,
chocolate protein powder instead of sugar and Onrange juice instead
of frozen. It came out pretty good. Thnx again.
have always love the taste of this drink . I always add a little
more vanilla . i hope u like it to
awsom recipe, I used splenda instead of sugar and was great, thanx,
have 3 children who love your Orange Julius! I can not get them to
drink regular orange juice but when i make your Orange Julius they
always ask for more. The whole family loves it. I want to thank you
for putting your recipes on the internet for people like me looking
for something all my children will like. It is a wonderful recipe.
It's people like you that make my life a little easier when it comes
to fixing things that my children love. Thank You
live in Moses Lake and there is not a place here where you can buy
and Orange Julius. This morning i was craving one so I typed it in
on ask.com.I looked at a few other ones and they were so confusing
then i saw yours and it made sense and it taste great thank you so
YUMMY! I loved these! we added 1/2 a banana and about 4 or 5
strawberries, it was wonderful. Anywayz thanx for the recipe!
Genuis! The last 3X went orange Julius they skimped on the powder or
something and my two boys couldn't figure out why I raved about
their drink. But! thanks to you, now they know what one tastes like
and they loved it, me too!
Thanks for the great Smoothie recipe. It saved my marriage!
I love this drink. I used
to work at an Orange Julius, and the powder we used for all of the
drinks is eggwhite powder. The smoothies we used coconut almond
powder. I really miss those drinks. I have been trying to find a
home recipe for this drink, now that I have one, I'll be making one
more often! Thanks!
while expiermenting with
refreshments and other things litke this i decided to try a recipe
for orang julius and it was a great one but ive come up with alot of
different combinations for drinks like this and they are great i
have this chocolate one which is pretty good but ye this was a good
change from the ones i have created and its good so thanks alot
WOW! This recipe is
awesome im like practically addicted to orange julius' now! But i
was just wondering how you make a strawberry julius becuz i cant
find a recipe anywhere. THANX!
Fantastic! Last time I
got an Orange Julius in the mall in San Diego, they skimped on the
ingredients. It was watery, but cost the same as a good one. It got
me craving, so I "googled" and found your site. Great taste with
fewer calories than my all time fav "Orange Dream Machine".
its so amazing! i love it!
I love this drink, it
tasted delicious, thankyou!!
Tis The Most Amazing
Drink! A Pure Bit of Genius!
OMG!!! This stuff is sooo
good!!! I am really hoping that every single perosn that reads this
This is great, i am 13
and love making all sorts of smothies. I must say that this one is
Awesome recipe. I didn't
have any orange jice so i substituted it for "Tropical Punch" & it
tasted great. Thanks for the recipe.
this recipe is awesome. i
make it all the time for my family and they enjoy it alot.
it was good
Amazing recipe- i changed
it around due to available ingredients. I substituted strawberry
smoothie yogurt and plain kefir yogurt for milk, frozen peaches for
oj and ice cubes, honey/raw sugar for sugar. Great!
good! I love to make various kinds of smoothies, but have never used
a real recipe till now. It was thinner than I like, but very tasty.
we made orange julius in middle school and this brings back the
memories I love it. It is very good.
have been craving Orange Julius, and we no longer have one in town!
This was deeeee-lish! I only used 2 T. of sugar and that was plenty
replaced both water and milk with equal parts rice milk, and
replaced orange juice concentrate with two whole oranges. Thanks for
tried this recipe with the vodka...AWESOME!
great recipe just made it in seconds and didn't evev have to go to
the store to buy any ingredients! Best thing I have made in months!!
ROX, I LIKE ALL YOUR RECIPES, THIS ONE ROX THE MOST. LALALALA tasty
and cooling~! refreshing too! i made for my friends and they said it
rox and all wan the recipe
just started using a amoothie machine and I thought of the oranfe
julius at our mall. And then I found you site and had tostart making
our own. And my 9 year old daughter just loves them.
the person that wrote the "secret Ingredient" was 99% correct. By
working there you know what they used, by working in a kitchen all
your life as a chef, people the substitution that is powdered milk
and egg.....Cream of tartar. Most of you have had it in your
cabinets all along. Orange juice, splash of milk, sugar, vanilla,
cream of tartar, ice, BAM! Orange Julius.
Fantastic! I kept looking for a recipe that didn't require ice
cream, and this one hit the spot!
I'm an old girl and have collected many cookbooks and recipes over
the years... But 32 years ago, in a high school home ec class, I
wrote out my FIRST recipe card. It was for a drink I was crazy
about! Yes! They had Orange Julius way back then! I still have that
card in my card file and I went to compare it with your recipe. The
only difference is mine calls for 1/2 cup sugar. I have loved this
recipe forever! Long live Orange Julius! (and the home ec teachers
who pass along the love of good recipes!)
Mmmm, mmmm, that brings me back. Thanks for a nostalgic (and
delicious) taste of my childhood.
Substitute Welch's Grape Juice (Frozen Concentrate)WOW! You may not
need as much sugar!
For those looking for something with a little kick...I use this
recipe and substitute 1 cup peach schnapps for the 1 cup water and
it makes a fantastic "fuzzy julius".
Thumbs up. Very simple and extremely good.
this is delishous all i had t change was put two real oranges in it
and that is all it is very good
This recipe was great! I used it of Christmas with my little family
of 4, and they loved it!
great blend...try adding just a dab of vanilla ice cream
Fantastic! Tastes totally like the original to me.
This recipe was great but I added about 10-11 ice cubes.
thought that this recipe tasted just like I was drinking an orange
julius right from the mall!!!
mmmm, I loved it!! We had seconds. Man I ttyl will go back and do
You can also add a bit of vanilla ice cream (like...maybe 1/2 cup)
and its still good, it just makes it a bit thicker and not as runny
as juice or something.
my goodness I cant stop drinking it, it is awesome I have made like
four ice cream buckets fulland they sit in the freezer until I want
them then I just thaw it and enjoy.mmmm
used to own an Orange Julius franchise. Powered egg white is used in
the Julius receipe.
wow! I don't really like orange juice but I used frozen strawberries
instead of ice cubes and it's by far the best smoothie I have ever
It is sooo awesome.....Me and my Family are addicted to this stuff!!
This is the closest recipe to the original.To be a true Julius, dont
forget the 1 tablespoon of dried eggwhite.I ran a OJ for 2 years in
medical school/college,enjoy people!
the recipe came out a bit more liquidy than i wouldve liked but it
tastes great so i dont mind. maybe adding a little bit of a
thickener would help. overall great taste tho
love smoothies but can never find one that tastes just like the real
orange julius store. this one is fantastic!! hope everyone tries it.
thanks for sending it out!
the best drink i have had in my life
Good and much cheaper, more for your money and great for the kiddies
love this Drink! I read it and thought how good it sounded. I made
if for a brunch I had for my family not realizing i grew up on this
drink. My mom used to make it for us as children to get us to drink
when we were sick. She always used powderded milk instead of
reagular milk. The powderded milk it great because you can keep it
in the closet and it is always there when you need it. I also use
Sweet and low 1-2 packages or to taste. Thanks for this recipe. It
has brought back alot of childhood memories
All I can say is "WOW!"...This recipe is spot on. I was amazed after
making it for the first time. It is so similar to the Orange Julius
so now I don't have to spend more money at the mall to buy one, I
just make it at home and bring it!
Thanks for the recipe. I didn't have a can frozen concentrated
orange juice (I mean who does) and I didn't have vanilla extract
either so I just used regular orange juice and about a tbsp. of
Yoplait Pina Colada and it tasted great. Can't wait to try it with
the frozen orangw juice and vanilla extract. Thanks again.
used to make these when I was young. My mom would put one or two
spoonfuls of Dream Whip, which is like powdered egg white. Thank you
for your site.
The recipe is wonderful! I put in a little less milk and added a bit
more vanilla, a bannana, and some fat free cool whip to give it that
my heck, this was the best recipe ever! The orange julius was so
yummy. Thank you.
This recipe is SO yummy! I didn't have any orange
juice so I used 2 orange popsicles, 1 cup of milk, no water and then
the vanilla and 8 ice cubes. I added a little bit more milk to mine
so I could drink it out of a glass but my boys loved it super thick.
Add 1 tsp coconut flavoring or coconut powder. Add 1 tbsp powdered
eggwhite. Gives a more original taste.
This was so good. Will make again!
this recipe is great i made it for my boyfirend and he loves so much
found this recipe by mistake and gave it a shot, first time it came
out sorta frothy and thick, but it still tasted like the Orange
Julius style smoothies. :D
I've been looking at a lot of recipes for the orange julius, but I
haven't seen one with the twist my mom put in hers. She adds an egg
white or two to get a little foam on the top. It's really great!!
was ok but i thought it could have been a little bit better if you
didnt use the vanilla extract or only a half a tsp. of it but other
than that it was great
close enough ingredients to the one i remeber!!! it was awesome
made this for my sons graduation, now every family graduation it is
a must. Friends of my kids even ask for it. It is a must have for
any summer fun! (we add a bit more ice to make it thicker tho)
wow such an amazing drink. My girlfriends and i love them. For an
extra touch add 2 shots of abosolut vodka
needed more sugar
am Danielle and my friend and I made this but we added banannas it
was great delicious thanks for teh recipe!
Awesome recipe, dude! Thanks for putting it on this site!
sounded great when I read the ingredients with my son. We wanted
something we could do together for fun family night! It worked out
GREAT and tasted GREAT too!! Thanks!!
yUMMY!!! woo hoo party in my MOUTH
I'm so glad I found this recipe. I went out and bought a blender
just for this. I added 3 egg whites and a little vanilla ice cream.
Thank you sooo much...Love it we just add strawberry and banana..we
do use soy milk instead...taste GREAT!
have been making these forever! A great add-in is coconut rum for
those over 21 of course..lol So good..lol YUM!!!
This was delicious! My kids loved it. It tastes exactly like at the
your orange julius was recipe was really good,i injoyed it alot such
made this on New Year's Eve. It was great. Used 1/2 cup of sugar. My
dad used to buy Orange Julius for us 50 years ago.
Amazing recipe everyone should try it!
This receipe is almost perfect. They used real oranges in the olden
days (I'm 60). I use to keep an eye on how they made this yummy
drink. Before blending this add a teaspoon of malted milk powder.
Completely and thoroughly awesome... death by Julius!! By the way,
the coconut powder that is so hard to find is actually coconut FLOUR
and most bulk food stores carry it.
Your orange juliuses are awsome!!!
am a big fan of Orange Julius, but they are rather expensive. I
found your recipe and decided to try it. It is absolutely
wonderful...so close to the real thing. I added 1/2 of a banana and
3 tbsp of crushed pineapple. As well I used powdered sugar.
comment, holla! this is the best drink ever. it makes me feel like a
All I can say is YUM!
made the Tropicana OJ and ice cream version. I didn't have vanilla
on hand, but I did have Pina con Coco (pineapple coconut). Wow! was
that good! I used only about 1&1/2C OJ to 2 cups ice cream and threw
in a few ice cubes. Kids LOVED it!
a teen in the 1970s I worked at Orange Julius and the "secret
ingredient was malted milk powder
Thanks for tje "copycat" recipe - tried on a 104 degree TX summer
day and it truly hit the spot.
This is a great recipe! I waited for years to have one of these
since the mall closed their Orange Julius Shop! YUMMY!
love this recipe i first found it in the newspaper but then i lost
the recipe and i tried looking and looking until i found it here and
now i ant to keep on coming back here for more things
absolutely love this recipe. I shared it with my mom and grandma and
they raved about it! Definitely try this one.
Thanks so much for posting the comments good and bad, cause it gives
you the chance to modify if you think you may agree with something a
little different. I read all of the comments before I tried my
version. Thanks to everyone to my Orange Julius recipe. This is my
version: 12 oz of Tropicana orange juice,(already made type) 1 cup
of milk, 1-2 tsp vanilla extract, 5-6 Tbsp powdered sugar, 2-3 cups
of ice, blend in blender on whip. Makes 32 oz ** You may want to
start out with 3-4 Tbsp powdered sugar, to satisfy how sweet you
just made my own "what do we have at home" version of this... 2 big,
juicy Florida oranges, low fat milk, vanilla, an egg white and LOTS
of ice cubes, no sugar... it was delicious!
great i tried to make some last night but it didn't come out to well
have a few orange trees so I used used 8oz of orange juice, 8oz of
non fat milk, a few packs of sugar substitute, 6 ice cubes and we
all loved it. Thanks!
The BEST Orange Julius recipe on the internet! Thank You.
This is the best thing going!! Tastes exactly like an Orange
Julius!! You've hit on the exact recipe in my opinion. I didn't have
any problems with the froth since I have a Miracle Chopper with
blender attachement....runs at a much higher speed so the froth was
perfect too. Thanks so much for sharing!!
