What all the fuss was about? Julius Freed was the one unimaginably in love with oranges so he decided to run his own business which was an orange juice stand. Nothing would have happened if not for his friend Bill. Bill loved oranges as much as Julius did, but they were detrimental to his stomach. Freed decided to blend orange juice with a few other ingrediends in order to lower its acidity and that is how it all started. Do you wonder how  to make a delicious orange julius? Read the following recipes and choose the one that suits you best.

How to make Orange Julius?


  • 1 ¼ cups orange juice
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups ice
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons egg white/egg substitute

Blend all the ingredients together except ice for about 15 to 30 seconds so the sugar melts. Add ice and blend for another 15-20 seconds (untill ice is crushed but still felt while drinking).

Or maybe Orange Julius Smoothie with banana and strawberries?


  • 3 oz Orange Juice
  • 1 small banana
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Dump all the ingredients in a blender and mix them together for about 15 to 20 seconds and enjoy your drink! If you are not a huge fan of bananas or strawberries you can use any fruit you want. Isn’t it simple?

Orange Julius with Ice-Cream


  • 1 cup of fresh/frozen orange juice or 4 oz orange juice concentrate
  • 1 Scoop vanilla ice cream
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 oz Milk
  • ½ cup of crushed ice.

Blend all the ingredients together and pour the drink into a tall glass. Serve it chilled. Enjoy!
