Pineapple Orange Julius Smoothie



Pineapple Orange Julius Smoothie recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen


Have you had an Orange Julius? It's been more years than I want to count since I've had one. So, when I saw a recipe for an Orange Julius over at Lynn's Kitchen, I immediately knew what I would be making today. While this is not a health food smoothie, it was very fun for a treat!

Pineapple Orange Julius Smoothie
(printable recipe)

2 cups orange juice
1 cup milk
1/2 cup frozen diced pineapple
1 cup ice
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 - 1/2 cup powdered sugar (depends on your preference for sweetness) I went for the full 1/2 cup

This was a great and refreshing smoothie. Just the right blend of sweetness and citrus flavors.


The baby boy tried a smoothie (well, technically a few sips of mine) for the first time today and he was giddy over it. He was being silly and laughing the whole time. I couldn't resist taking a picture to share. Enjoy!

  6. No raw egg? That is how I made it years ago. At about 15 I had my first Orange Julius and made my own version:

    2 cups orange juice
    1 cup vanilla ice cream
    1 cup ice
    1/2 cup granulated sugar
    1 raw egg
    1-2 teaspoon vanilla

    VERY smooth and creamy.

    Optional banana.

  12. I think this is almost a health food smoothie, lot of fruits! Interesting to combine milk with pineapple and orange juice

  13. You are all so sweet! We think he's pretty cute too.
    @North - a raw egg? Is that just how you prefer it or did the stores actually served them that way? I can't imagine any restaurant serving raw egg anything now. Although, ice cream might be a welcome addition to just about any kind of smoothie!

  14. Egg was an option way back then. It has been a LONG time since I was at an OJ. I don't know when the eggs (as an option) went away.

    A friend pointed out to me that my recipe is heavily loaded with sugar. I was a teen then. Could easily remove the sugar or make Splenda substitutions.
