This Copycat Orange Julius recipe is just like the frothy orange drink you remember from the 80's in the mall food court. So good and easy!
COPYCAT HOMEMADE ORANGE JULIUS
Do you remember Orange Julius? It brings back a lot of memories of the 80's for me. Oh the hair! Anyway, I suppose some malls still have an Orange Julius stand. All the ones by me closed years ago. But they were famous for their most popular drink, the Orange Julius. It's a cool, frothy, orange-tastic drink, with a touch of vanilla.
CAN I USE OTHER FLAVORS?
Absolutely! This works with concentrated lemonade as well! A great way to switch up the flavors. Plus, it whips up in a snap so it is perfect for a quick summer sweet treat. If you love that creamsicle flavor, then you are sure to love this! No trip to the mall required! I hope it brings back some memories for you as it did for me!
INGREDIENTS NEEDED: (FULL RECIPE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POST)
- frozen orange juice concentrate
- vanilla extract

HOW TO MAKE AN ORANGE JULIUS:
Put all your ingredients into the blender. I like to put the liquids in first, then the ice, because my blender seems to mix it up best that way.
Don't forget to put the lid on! Then process all ingredients together until frothy.
Pour into glasses. Makes 4 servings. Look at that frosty goodness. Yum!
