Orange Julius

I have to say, my husband is the Orange Julius Master! Whenever we're feeling that Julius craving coming on, everyone knows it's DAD you beg to whip up a batch. For some reason, these can give you the worst brain freeze, but my daughter found a solution: press your thumb hard against the roof of your mouth until your head stops feeling like it's gonna explode. It works! FYI, all my drink recipes are for an 8-cup blender.

1 can frozen orange juice concentrate(costco sized)
1 can evaporated milk
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla

Spoon frozen oj concentrate into blender. Fill empty oj can halfway with evap milk, then finish filling with water. Fill up blender with ice. Add sugar, vanilla and half of milk/water mixture. Blend on high until smooth. Add more milk/water to achieve desired consistency.


  1. How fun, Crystalin! I love fruity drinks. And perfect timing for the warm weather. Do you care if I write up a little blog post about your site because I have some friends who would probably love seeing your recipes.

  2. Of course I don't mind Carrie! Maybe it will help me to start taking a little more responsibility for my posts!!

  3. Oh my gosh, I'm dying at how good this tastes right now! Its so hot today and really hit the spot. I made extra and gave some to our construction workers and they loved it too :) Thanks!
