Recipe Notes
  • Frozen cans of orange juice are 12 ounces. Take a sharp knife, and cut through the middle of the frozen juice. Throw the other half back in the freezer to use at a later time.
  • Want a different flavor? Add some pineapple juice or fresh strawberries.
  • Add a  scoop of vanilla ice cream for extra creaminess.
  • The original classic orange julius recipe calls for a half cup of sugar but we use a quarter cup and adjust to our preferred level of sweetness.
  • We love using a Ninja Professional Blender to make this summer drink.
