Orange Julius

This is one of those recipes I hardly ever make but love! It not only brings back great memories but tastes great!  I remember as a kid my mom making these for us and it was a real treat!! 
Orange Julius
1 (12 oz.) can frozen orange juice
2 1/2 cups milk
1 1/2 cup water
1 cup sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
15-18 ice cubes. (or more depending on how you like it!)
Blend until smooth. About 30 seconds.  Start with 15 ice cubes and then add more if needed.
The only issue this time is the blender you see in the picture, no longer exists. When we washed it someone set it on the counter and my husband knocked it off and it broke. Now I am on the look out for a good new blender.


  1. Darn husbands! Hint! Hint! Mother's day is just around the corner. Orange Julius' are the greatest!

  2. Looks Yummy!
    Now you have a valid excuse to go out yardsailing!!!!
    Sparkly Hugs,
    Tobi and the Pixies!

  3. I love these!!! Haven't made one in ages... might have to do so this weekend :)

  4. My husband would simply love this! You should come link-up to Tuesday Tastes and Crazy Daisy. I would love to have you!

    Happy Day,
    Jasey @ Crazy Daisy

  5. This DOES bring back memories! It sounds great!

  6. I am sorry about your blender. Sometimes, it is fun to get a new model.

    My dishwasher just went and I would have gone without it but hubby was a good sport and insisted. I don't want the bells and whistles but I like the set-up better, more room for dishes.

    I want an orange Julius.

  7. Oh man I use to love hitting the S. Hill mall and getting one of these! What a great recipe.

    Oh no on blender ;(

  8. Yum! Isn't it funny how you forget about recipes that you used to love? I had totally forgotten about the good old Orange Julius's.

    Well I wanted to click over and say that I received your nice cookbook in the mail and I am so very excited.

    I'm sorry that I haven't been on the computer at all lately. I meant to come over forever ago to thank you, so I'm so sorry if I seemed ungracious! :) Hoping to get back in the swing of things soon.

    :) Thanks for making my day!

  9. I just pulled my blender out of storage and this is perfect timing...I forgot how much I missed these drinks..

  10. I haven't seen an orange julius in years, my uncle use to have an orange julis stand in the mall, the celebration punch sounds good too, I mix 7-up & ginger ale with my sherbert to make abig bowl of punch, whatever the color theme is is what flavor sherbert to use LOL I will have to give the lemon lime a try

  11. This brings back memories of going to the mall (when malls were oh so popular) and hanging out all day!
    Great recipe! I bookmarked it. My kids will love this in the summer!

  12. We had the same problem with our blender! Somebody crammed it in the cupboard and when I proceeded to open it, the dang thing fell out and broke. It was a very nice one too. Made me wonder if having an (then) 11 year old unload the dishwasher was a good idea. I still havent replaced.

  13. Oh this is one of my fav recipes. My sister and I often make this when she comes to town - it's drink that brings back lots of childhood memories for us (our parents drank them with Gin in them! LOL).
