Recipe: Homemade Orange Julius!Author: DaisyChubb | Filed under: Recipes
It’s true, I don’t only drink tea. Sometimes I need to get my fruits in drink form. Or I crave certain specialty drinks (alcohol, jugo juice, orange julius, etc!).
I found in a Company’s Coming book a recipe for Orange Julius with skim milk powder. Poifect! I found some in the grocery store, but next time I’ll get it from Bulk Barn. It was really cheap, and if you get the orange juice on sale, you’re saving so much money on this drink.
So over the past week, I’ve been experimenting with different quantities of ice, powder and vanilla and I found the recipe that works best for me. It’s suuuuper frothy and the froth sticks around until the bottom of the cup! It’s still the same texture as a refreshing, icy Orange Julius and tastes similar enough to satisfy. More than satisfy, it’s freaking delicious.
So here’s my recipe!
Daisy’s Homemade Orange Julius
1 cup orange juice
1/3 cup skim milk powder
1 tsp vanilla
2 tsp white sugar (substitute any sweetener you like)
*optional – a squirt of Vanilla Nesquick for extra sweet & extra vanilla
8 ice cubes
Put everything but the ice cubes in your blender and give it a quick spin to mix everything together. Add the ice cubes 2 at a time and blend. I used the “Icy Drink” setting on my blender, but just use a powerful setting (even pulse) to blend the ice and get it nice and frothy. Continue until all ice cubes are added! Pour and enjoy.
Ahhh summer in a glass. And WAY cheaper than the real thing!
