Orange Blender Drink

This orange blender drink is a recipe that comes from my mother-in-law. It’s suppose to be a homemade version of an orange julius. When I was a young girl I had a similar recipe that I would make, however it called for raw egg and nutmeg. Now a days it is not recommend to eat raw egg.

This orange blender drink recipe is basically the same as what I made a a girl without the raw egg and nutmeg. My mother also now makes this for Christmas as part of her brunch.

You will need some frozen orange juice concentrate. Don’t thaw it, you use it frozen. Then you will also add in some milk, cold water, sugar, vanilla, and ice. Blend together until nice and smooth. It’s like a copy cat version of an Orange Julius drink! If you have never had an Orange Julius drink before you simply must make this!

It’s also kind of like the flavor of a creamsicle. It’s that combination of orange along with creamy. Grab your blender and get blending. I am sure this will turn into a favorite for you too. Make it as a treat or as part of a breakfast.

  2. I've made this many times since I was a kid. One thing I did instead of using the frozen concentrate, I would use 2 cups of reconstituted orange juice and omit the water. Also, if you want to turn this into a smoothie, add a few scoops of sherbet and some frozen fruit (you can leave out the sugar if you do this if you don't want it to be as sweet).

  3. I made this drink the other day and I put a couple teaspoons of meringue powder (which is egg white powder) and it gave it the frothy effect. I decorate cakes so I always have meringue powder on hand, but I guess others probably don’t have that. I wonder if Orange Julius used meringue powder in theirs… because I remember seeing them put a white powder in their drinks.

  4. just a tip: you can now buy pasteurized eggs still in the shell (which eliminates any chance of salmonella). So if you wanted to get the frothy effect that comes with using an egg, just look for pasteurized eggs in the shell. 🙂

    I use to work at a Orange Julius so I’m a fan of these drinks. Thanks for the recipe!

  5. My parents would do orange julius with raw egg as well. It tasted so wonderful! I’ll have to try this when I get the chance, I’m sure it will bring back memories!
