Orange Julius Recipe

drinks spring Mar 18, 2020

Why I Like to Serve It

Spring weather is often considered to be a seasonal launch to brunch hosting. One of my favorite drinks to serve for breakfast gatherings is an ice cold orange julius. It has the frothy smoothness of a smoothie, invigorating zest of traditional OJ and sweetness of an orange creamsicle. Since I’m not a mimosa drinker, this is my go-to beverage for brunches and breakfast parties.



Orange Julius Beverage

6 oz frozen orange juice concentrate

1 cup milk

1 tsp vanilla extract

3 Tbsp granulated sugar

1 cup water

10-12 ice cubes


Blend all ingredients in blender until smooth. Serve immediately.

How to Serve It

Pour mixture into tumblers, champagne flutes, mason jars or another drinking glass and serve with a straw, lemon/lime/orange slice and/or mint leaves for garnish. I love using doilies as coaster decorations to add color, design and inexpensive flair to a table.
