Whip out the blender because it’s time to make a refreshing Orange Julius smoothie! This recipe is a healthy version of the traditional drink. I’ve added some nutritional benefits that you can blend in and have ready to drink in five minutes or less!

Way before the growth of juice clubs like Jamba Juice, in the 1920’s there was a small juice stand located in Los Angeles that served up a creamy, frothy drink coined “Orange Julius” named after the orange juice pioneer Julius Freed. Locals fell in love with the blend of orange juice, milk, sugar and ice for a frozen creamy treat. Who wouldn’t love an orange creamsicle flavored drink?
Whole Fruits: Using orange segments, 100% orange juice and bananas, you can leverage the natural sweetness of whole fruits to reduce and avoid added refined sugars. If frozen, make sure that you read the orange juice labels to look for orange juice as the primary ingredient, with no added sugar or high fructose corn syrup. For this recipe I chose ripe oranges, I like Navel for its sweetness.
