"Found @ sweetcsdesignsdotcom, the blogsite of Courtney O'Dell & entered for the NY City leg of the Culinary Quest #3. The ORANGE JULIUS actually originated in Los Angeles, California in the late 1920's, but later became identified w/New York City when it was named the official drink of the 1964 New York World's Fair. More history was made when Dairy Queen bought all rights to the iconic beverage, but this smoothie & others like it are now the direct descendants of the original Orange Julius. ENJOY!"

I love Orange Julius's, and have since I was a kid in middle school, where we used to get them at our shopping mall. This was excellent copy cat version of them. I made 1/4 of the recipe for just myself, but have a lot of the frozen OJ leftover, so I can make many more. The only change I made was to omit the sugar, which I really didn't miss, as I am trying to go lower carb. Thanks for sharing the recipe!! Made for your win in the Football Pool, congrats again!!

Super yum! I grew up drinking these at "the mall" at the Orange Julius stand. This tasted just like it. I did add only half the sugar called for which was definitely sweet enough. Thanks for posting my Captain!! Stacy G for CQ 2016 New York baby!

This is simply delicious! I yhink that this recipe is perfect gor a big company and I like that no alcohol is needed. I wonder what would be the result after replacing the concentrate+ice cubes by frozen diced real oranges; or replacing cow milk by coconut milk or almond milk. Thanks a lot for pisting!
