Easy Orange Julius Recipe – Creamy Orange Smoothie
This easy Orange Julius recipe makes a creamy orange smoothie that tastes just like the ones at the mall. Starting with orange juice and ice cream, it makes a perfectly refreshing cool treat for warm summer days!
- Yield: 4 servings
1/3 cup frozen orange juice concentrate
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup milk
5-6 ice cubes
1/4 cup sugar
2 scoops vanilla ice cream
1/2 cup water (optional)
- Combine all of the ingredients in blender until smooth.
- Pour into a glass and enjoy!
This Orange Julius recipe can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 1 day. Serves 4.
If you like, you can add other things like strawberries, banana, pineapple or coconut. If a smoothie-type ingredient sounds good to you, you can probably add it!
For Dairy Free:
If you’re dairy free, you can substitute coconut milk for the milk and vanilla coconut milk ice cream in place of the ice cream.
You can use Coconut Silk, but it will result in a thinner smoothie. It is better to use coconut milk in a can, if possible, because it has a thicker consistency and will more resemble a smoothie or shake.

Ty I miss orange Julius. Was my fave on a trip to the mall.
Tawra – I have both your Dining on A Dime books … Volume I is very WELL used and has many notes scribbled on the pages! I can’t thank you enough for all the help you’ve given me over the years! I love your Newsletter and have used many of the tips provided! I evev did your 7 Day Meal Plan and it’s still working just as great, just a bit more expensive due to the rising cost at the grocery store, but because it’s just my husband and I we got 2 weeks out of it Again, thanks SO much for all you do to help us all stay on budget!
Thank you so much Linda. We love hearing that our readers are getting good use out of our books and it sounds like yours really really are. : )
