Orange Julius Recipe

orange julius Orange Julius RecipeThis week I’m participating in the United Way Hunger Action Week.  I made myself this Orange Julius inspired smoothie modified to what I had on hand with only a few ingredients for lunch.  Smoothies make a great snack or meal replacement and can be made in just a few minutes.  The nice thing about smoothies is this.. when you blend drinks with ice the volume of the liquids expands so your drink lasts longer.   Enjoy.

Orange Julius Inspired Smoothie

5-6 ice cubes

1 cup orange juice

1 egg white or powdered equivalent

3 tablespoons sugar  (or sugar substitute equivalent) – less or more depending on sweetness preference

*optional* 2 tablespoons of vanilla yogurt

*optional * 1 tablespoon protein powder

Directions:  Blend everything in a blender for 30-45 seconds.  Pour into a glass. Enjoy!

    Oh Orange Julius — how I miss thee!!! Bookmarked, too. I’m a little sad that most of the shops closed except for a few, but now that you’ve made this, i don’t have to sad anymore.

    Orange Julius used to be a Mother/Daughter mall tradition for me too : ) I never though to make one at home, but now I’ll have to give it try- yours looks so frothy and delicious!

    Wonderful. This brings back some great memories. My Dad used to make the exact same drink for me and my brothers when we were kids. He called it a Ponche. But in Mexican culture a Ponche is a type warm fruit punch often served with some kind of alcohol on holidays. I Don’t know where he got the idea, but we loved it and often begged him to make it for us. Thanks for the post

    This brings back such wonderful memories. As a kid, I used to frequent Orange Julius’s. There used to be one in San Francisco’s Chinatown. And I remember my Mom would treat me to one if we were out shopping there. It was always a favorite.

    I’ve been thoroughly enjoying these. Yesterday I made Ina Garten’s Juice of a Few Flowers (1/2 cup grapefruit juice, 1/2 cup orange juice, 1/4 cup lime juice, 1/4 cup lemon juice — plus vodka). I had some of the juice mixture leftover and decided to use it to make a citrus Julius. It was very good!

    I just made this recipe and it is delicious, I didn’t have any eggs but it turned out great. I give this recipe five stars!

    Years ago I watched these being made every time I had one. We began to use a very similar recipe as yours only including the yolk of the egg. Everyone always loved it, and it is such an energy boost. An egg gives the highest amount of easily digestible protein than any other food. This is great for pregnancy snack and small children.
