Do you remember Orange Julius from when you were a kid? It was the thing to do in junior high; go to the mall, hang out with friends and get an Orange Julius or maybe a cookie from Mrs. Fields. I can’t remember the last time I actually had one, ours closed before I even graduated high school.
Well now you can relive those days and make your own tasty, frothy orange drink at home! It is so easy, takes about 5 minutes and just a few basic ingredients. A fun thing to make with breakfast or brunch and share with the whole family.

What Is An Orange Julius
Orange Julius is an American chain restaurant, that serves all kinds of different fruit drinks and smoothies. They range from super fruity and more like dessert to loaded with veggies and protein and on the healthy side.
They serve a signature orange drink called the Orange Julius and this is a copycat version of theirs that you can make at home any time!
What’s In An Orange Julius

- Powdered Sugar
- Vanilla Extract
- Ice Cubes
It all comes together in frothy, sweet, orange juice like smoothie. It is great to add to breakfast or brunch or just as an afternoon snack.
How To Make Orange Julius
This smoothie could not be easier to make, you can have the kids do it, while you get the rest of breakfast ready!
- Add all of the ingredients to your blender.
- Blend until it is nice and smooth and everything is well blended.
- Pour into glasses and serve!
- If you don’t have orange juice concentrate, freeze regular orange juice and use that. You can freeze on a baking tray and break it up or in ice cube trays. But if you just use fresh orange juice the consistency will be different.
- Try adding other fruits. At Orange Julius you can add strawberries and other fruits to this drink. So throw in a different fruits and see what your favorite combination is.
- Powdered sugar is best to use for this recipe as it blends well with the smoothie and dissolves easily.
A fun way to store the leftovers is to pour it into a popsicle mold to freeze. Then you have a frozen treat for later! You can even make a double batch if you want to store some popsicles in the freezer for a hot day.
