Copycat Orange Julius Drink

Have you ever visited an Orange Julius juice bar? My husband did a long time ago and he said the drink he had back then reminded him of Creamsicle Ice Cream just like this did. This easy recipe is made with frozen orange juice concentrate, milk and a few other ingredients and tasted great!

I found the recipe in a library book a few years ago. Unfortunately, I didn’t mark down the title so I can’t give credit to them. If anyone has this recipe and knows the title and author please let me know so I can give them credit.

Add all of the ingredients to the blender.

Blend on high speed just until combined,

this only takes a few seconds.

Pour into a glass and serve immediately.

  1. I love Orange Julius! I used to make them at my Mom’s. She had a blood orange tree. We’d use fresh OJ, dried milk powder/creamer, ice … yummy.

  2. This drink reminds me of a nice warm summer day by the pool. The creamsicle reference definitely makes it very appealing!

    • You’re welcome! I made it and had a glass then refrigerated the rest in the blender. The next day I blended it again for a few seconds and still good! My grandkids loved it too.

    • It tasted so good Linda. I put the leftovers in the refrigerator overnight, remixed the next day in the blender for a about 10 seconds and it was as good as the day before. Thank you Linda! 💕
