I’ll have an Orange Julius

The closest store to me is about 50 miles away.

So I searched for a recipe or low-fat version to make at home.

History of the Orange Julius.

Did you know how far back the Orange Julius goes?   Neither did I. In 1926, the first orange juice stand began in Los Angelos in a little store on South  Broadway.  His customers liked it and once concocting a blender recipe, in 1929, he opened 100 more stores. It expanded to Canada in 1962.  In 1964, Orange Julius was the official drink at New York’s World’s Fair. In the late 70’s and early 80’s , the drink is introduced in Hong Kong and Singapore. Then along came the Julius Cream Supreme drink line. In 1987, it became a fully owned subsidy of International Diary Queen (IDQ).

Orange Julius recipes  from the web:

a “real” Orange Julius

6 oz. frozen orange juice concentrate
1 cup milk
1 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
8-9 ice cubes

1. Combine all ingredients except ice cubes in blender.
2. Blend for about 1-2 minutes, adding ice cubes one at a time.

I know, that’s a lot of sugar, right? Yeah, no wonder it’s so good

Update: A reader emailed me a suggestion to use powdered sugar to make the drink a bit creamier. I’ve been using 1/4 cup regular sugar and 1/4 powdered sugar and it’s fantastic!
