I haven't used my blender in years not since my kids flew the nest - but I will make a point of it now! This was SO good so creamy orangey and refreshing! I used fresh squeezed orange juice low-fat milk Equal and a few less ice cubes than called for. A suggestion for others who found this not creamy or orangey enough might be to try what I did and make this with fewer ice cubes. This was simply delicious! Read More

I decided to try this recipe today. I thought it was okay. It's nice for a quick and easy smoothie-like drink.:) The drink tasted like a light Orange Cream Ice Cream Bar...very light flavor. Next time I think I will add a little more orange juice and sugar to see if I can strengthen the flavor. Overall it was fun to try!!:) Thanks!! Read More

Absolutely delicious! Just like an Orange Julius!:) I doubled all ingredients to make 2 drinks. But I only use 12 ice cubes. My ice maker doesn't really make 'cubes' per say they are a kinda half-oval shape (larger than traditional ice cubes). So...if you have similar ice - use 6 for one drink & 12 for two. Thanks for the recipe it is much easier than similar recipes where you have to buy orange juice concentrate. I always have these ingredients on hand so I'll be making it again & again!:) Read More

This is a good base recipe. I added a bit of vanilla, a banana, and some lime juice. I topped it with whipped cream. I got my "ice cream" fix. If you are out of ice cream this is a good alternative :) Read More

Ok I made this three times yesterday. (not all for me but I snuck in a sip of each) It was really good but as others said its just a good BASE recipe...it was really fun to tweak! I made mine with a little more sugar a little less ice and a little Cool Whip blended into it and and dollop of Cool Whip in it and it tasted like a it had icecream in it! Yummy! Have it your way applies to this. I will make this again and again Read More

This was okay. Good in a fix when you want something sweet and a quick breakfast while you're tending to your family. I used low-fat milk and a packet of Equal. Read More

the first time i made it the taste was great but it was not smooth and wouldnt come up my straw. so i made 8 ice cubes out of orange juice. i put the orange cubes 1 teaspoon of sugar in the raw and over a half cup of almond milk (i just kept pouring it in until the consistency was right in my bullet). delicious and apparently my daughter thought so too!

It really does taste similar to Orange Julius. I did take a suggestion and used less ice cubes. It's a keeper. Update Sub Mango Banana Yogurt for the milk added a tad more oj. It was more runny but pefect for the occasion. Used 5 ice cubes. Read More

My kids didn't care for this but I don't know why - it was delicious! I used a fresh orange and put it through the blender first and then added the other ingredients. 1 medium size orange yielded just a bit under 1 cup. I just added water to bring it to the 1 cup mark (I doubled the recipe). I've made this twice so far and thought it was great both times. I'm on my way into the kitchen right now to make it again. I think fresh oranges are going to be a staple in my kitchen this summer.:) UPDATE: I now make this every day. This recipe is a great base for other smoothies. My kids LOVE this when I replace the ice cubes with frozen strawberries. Currently I am sipping this recipe with the addition of some fresh spinach. Delicious! Read More
