Our family loves Orange Julius and this recipe comes as close as any version we have tried. But about a month after trying this recipe the first time, my daughter & I went to the Orange Julius in the mall and observed them using half water and half Sprite as they mixed our drinks. We went home and tried the same thing with this recipe and the results were wonderful! With the Sprite in it we couldn't tell the difference between our version and the mall drink.

I was really shocked - I figured it would be a close call, but it does taste JUST like Orange Julius! I moved to a small town when I married and haven't had one for 3 years... I am so thrilled. Thanks!

I substituted 2 c. strawberries. I had no vanilla on hand, but I did have and used 2 Tbsp. fat-free, French vanilla coffee creamer. Stil used the 1/2 c. sugar, 1 c. water and 15 ice cubes. So simple and delicous. Our favorite soothie. Thankyou.

This was wonderful! I've tried other copycats of the Orange Julius and they weren't close but this one is woderful and DD said it was better than the ones at the Mall. Not too sweet. I can't wait to try the strawberry one:) Thank you for posting! I have since tried this with Splenda and several of the kids prefer it that way.

my boys and i love this! it tastes just like an orange julius and it simple and quick to fix. i find that it serves 3 or 4. i do add the chopped and peeled orange, also. it makes a great afterschool snack.

Yum, this is fruity and refreshing. I grew up on orange Julius and haven't had one in quite a while. I was so excited to try this and hoped my kids would enjoy as much as I had. We LOVED them. So good. DS requested oj so he could make them as an after school snack or for breakfast. Thank you for sharing with us.
