So I worked at Orange Julius when I was a teenager and I have to say this drink tastes pretty dang close to the original. I’m crazy about this recipe—don’t change a thing. Read More

I'm always looking for smoothies/shakes for my young daughter and this one whipped up nicely. I like adding a pastured egg to our shakes--it makes them frothy and adds nutrition so this recipe appealed to me. I made several changes. I used a frozen banana orange juice in place of the milk and OJ concentrate ice cream instead of regular cream and only a tablespoon of sugar. It was fantastic and DD said "mmm mmm." This only made 2 small servings for me. Read More

Excellent recipe with some adjustments for our preferences. Seemed unnecessarily sweet to us. -Doubled the ice (Icier consistency & reduces sweetness) -Reduced sugar content to 1/4 cup of Splenda (to cut calories) -Omitted egg (food safety reasons) -Frozen instead of fresh banana (creamier icier consistency) Read More
