Pineapple Orange Julius

Creamy, frothy Pineapple Orange Julius - get the recipe at
Creamy, frothy Orange Julius drinks are a fun food memory that most of us share. No food says 'I'm awake!' quite like the iconic combination of orange and vanilla. My kids were thrilled when I introduced them to this fun memory from my childhood.

I’ve added pineapple to our version, because in my world, pineapple makes everything even better. The pineapple adds a little tropical flair that makes your taste buds wake right up.

I’ve partnered with AllWhites® to share this breakfast smoothie with you. I love the convenience of liquid egg whites for fast breakfasts on busy mornings. Not only do egg whites add protein to this smoothie, but they also give it the classic Julius-style creaminess and froth that can’t be beat.

AllWhites are 100% real liquid egg whites that are pasteurized for safety. AllWhites can be used uncooked, in salad dressing recipes, drinks, desserts like tiramisu and more, without fear of food borne illness.

Pineapple Orange Julius
Yield: (2) 16 ounce servings
(printable recipe)

1 cup orange juice
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup pineapple concentrate
1/4 cup AllWhites 100% liquid egg whites
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups ice cubes
2 - 4 tablespoons powdered sugar, adjust as desired
Optional: sliced pineapple wedges for garnish

Place the orange juice, milk, pineapple concentrate, AllWhites, and vanilla in the blender. Blend for about a minute until frothy and thick. Add the ice cubes and blend again for 1-2 minutes until finely crushed and frothy. Taste the smoothie and add sugar to taste. Blend a few more seconds to mix the sugar throughout. Pour into glasses and garnish with pineapple, if desired. Enjoy!

COOK’S NOTE: If desired, orange juice concentrate can be substituted for the pineapple concentrate. I recommend 100% juice concentrates and orange juice either way. If the concentrate or juice that you use has added sugars, you’ll want to taste the mixture before adding any extra sugar. It is possible to make this drink without the concentrate, however, it won’t be as thick or creamy without it.

I actually preferred the drink with no sugar at all. It is tangy and a little tart that way. However, the sugar makes it much closer to the original Orange Julius flavor. It probably won’t surprise you to hear that my kids preferred their drinks with the full amount of sugar.

This Pineapple Orange Julius is a tropical twist on the classic Orange Julius drink and best of all you can make at home! - get the recipe at

  5. Thanks for the recipe. Sounds delicious. I would make a grilled cheese sandwich.

  6. My son-in-law is all protein all the time (except when he's asleep then it's all carbs all the time). My daughter would use AllWhites and make omelets, I would use the awesome pan for grilled cheese, pancakes and all sorts of things <3

  7. We like to make an omelet/grilled cheese sandwich, which is essentially two pieces of french toast with cheese in the middle.
