I love making different beverages at home – coffee, tea, hot chocolate, milkshakes, smoothies, apple cider, punch… The list goes on and on. But one of my favorite drinks to make (and certainly one of my family’s favorite drinks to enjoy) is the Orange Julius.
I don’t know if any malls still carry Orange Julius kiosks or not. I know the ones around us no longer have them. I have no idea why, they were outrageously delicious.
The recipe below is a dead ringer for these wonderful, citrus-y, and frothy beverages. They’re perfect year-round because, even though and Orange Julius is a cold drink – what better time to serve your family scads of Vitamin C than cold and flu season?
I guarantee you will fall in love with this beverage. Try it tonight!
Orange Julius Recipe
1 cup orange juice (I like for it to have some pulp)
1 cup water
1 egg white
3/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup sugar
1 heaping cup ice
Combine all of the ingredients in a blender. Blend on high for about 15 to 20 seconds.
As far as the brand of orange juice, I’d imagine that the better the orange juice, the better the Orange Julius! I always buy Simply Orange or Tropicana and they’re both excellent (whether they get all jiggy with it in the blender or not!).
