    Jason Heyd's Note:

    I'd been looking for an Orange Julius recipe that didn't require a can of frozen OJ concentrate.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 10 -20 ice cubes
    • 1 cup orange juice
    • 1 cup milk
    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract (optional, to taste)
    • 1 egg, raw (optional, add at your own risk!)


    1. 1
      Place ingredients into a blender until ice is finely crushed.
    2. 2
      More ice will make the drink thicken slightly, as will adding the raw egg.
    3. 3
      You can also add 1/2 teaspoon (or slightly more) of almond extract which, I've been told, might get you a little closer to "the real deal". :).
    4. 4
      By the way, this definitely isn't a smoothie recipe. The Orange Julius is much closer to juice in consistency -- not usually "thick" at all. With that said, back when I was a kid, you could ask them to throw in a raw egg and that would thicken the mixture a bit. I've added the egg as an optional ingredient. And I'd definitely add the vanilla extract (and almond for that matter) if you want the "Orange Julius" flavor.

      I thought I would try a new recipe, beings I am attatched to the Orange Julius Smoothie recipe by Miss Annie #35185. I wasn't impressed by this recipe at all. There was no flavor to me without the vanilla. I had to add the vanilla just to give it some flavor. To me it tasted pretty bad. I added more orange juice and more ice just to see if I could save the recipe and then it was a bit better, maybe cut down on the milk by 1/2. I will try that and see if the taste will be better. Thanks for posting but I rather have a nice thick smoothie, with wonderful flavor.

      Mmmm, this is yummy! Didn't have any vanilla, but I thought it tasted great without it!

      I used the maximum amount of ice cubes and wasn't happy with the results. I processed it twice, but the top half of the glass had like crushed ice with not much flavor. The next time I try this, I will go with the lesser amount of ice. Has very good taste though.
