Orange Julius

Remember going to the mall as a kid and getting those wonderful Drinks from Orange Julius?
I would go home and mix Orange Juice with Milk and sugar trying to get the same taste.
It never ever worked!
I would end up with curdled milk-chunks in Orange Juice....
ummm YUCK!
I have finally figured out the secret to the perfect copy-cat version you can make at home!!

Creamsicle in a Glass
Orange Julius (Copy cat)

Ingredients
  • 2 cups orange juice
  • 1 cup Lemon/Lime Soda
  • 3 Tablespoons powdered coffee creamer
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 20'ish ice cubes
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 peeled orange (optional)
Directions
  1. Add all ingredients to a blender.
  2. Blend until there are no more ice chunks.
  3. Serve over ice.
  4. ENJOY!!
Makes 2 large glasses

**TIPS**
Do NOT substitute milk for the creamer... the acid in the OJ will curdle the milk.. yuck!

  1. Dana, I grew up in Harlingen Texas 1 blk away from the first mall in town & we had an Orange Julius! I used to make them for the kids when they were little, but I never had problems with the milk curdling. I just filled the blender up with ice, poured orange juice & some sugar in & turned on the blender Then added the milk & reblended. Maybe the acid was diluted by the ice. You can always add a fresh egg to the mixture. Love your site & "don't ask me how I know this" lol Barbara in Bastrop
