1 (6 ounce) can
frozen orange juice concentrate
This is good but it lacks the egg white that is used in the original Orange Julius recipe. It was made with 1 l/4 cup of orange juice instead of frozen), 1 cup of water, all the rest of the ingredients were the same except that you added one egg white when you are ready to blend it. That is what gives it the froth! I'm sure there really isn't much difference if you use orange juice or frozen but adding the egg white really adds to the appearance.
I thought this was fairly average. I liked the frothy texture, but taste was average. It's not a recipie I would use regularly.
Great smoothie! I added heavy cream, which gave it an awesome creamy texture. After tasting how it turned out (so I knew if I'd make it plain) I added peach schnapps. The schnapps overpowered the vanilla taste (I LOVED the vanilla taste) but tasted very good. I'll be making this again! I also tried freezing my OJ in an ice cube tray - makes for an excellent smoothie texture!
These are really delicious and truly an eye opener in the morning. They're almost like the orange julius drinks you used to get in the mall. (Do those things even still exist?) Next time I may add some vanilla ice cream to thicken it up. I too added vanilla extract to mine.
The vanilla and orange is an unexpected surprise. This is so delicious. I reduce the sugar to 1/4 cup for the grandkids. For me, I add 1T wheat germ and 1T brewers yeast to jump start me in the mornings.Thanks for starting our days off right, Trudy!
VERY similar to "orange glorious" also found on this site but it is tasty just as it is. I ended up make two batches this morning...both excellent! In the second "batch," I added a few frozen strawberries and another tsp of vanilla. Also makes for a great after-school snack for kids!
Yum! This was great. I love how it was a bit fluffy, and very light. I used skim milk so this thing was totally guilt-free. Delicious. Will make again.
This is a fantastic reciepe. My husband loves orange juice, but typically can not drink it because of the amount of acid it has in it. But this reciepe somehow dilutes the acidity, and he can drink it just fine without it giving him any stomach problems. I love it too, tastes great!!!
