    I made this reciope, but to keep it a little healthier I used Stevia in place of sugar. It was GREAT!! Loved it.

    I can vouch for the egg- I remember as a child it was a special treat to get an Orange Julius. I remember them asking if we wanted whole egg or egg white or no egg at all. We always did egg white.

    When I was a kid we’d mow lawns and shovel snow for neighbors. This one lady would always make us orange julius’ for us when we were done. All I remember was her putting the raw eggs in it. It was delicious. This looks like the recipe. I’m trying it.

    This is pretty much as close to the actual recipe as you can get at home. The egg white is the key to it’s authenticity. It makes it nice and frothy. The OJ chain uses a powdered substitute, but I would recommend trying it with the raw egg white.

    I’m not a fan of this recipe. I’m not sure if it was the eggs or not enough orange but I didn’t think it was so good.

      Use whatever sweetener you prefer. Honey is always a good choice or Stevia for those watching their calories.

    I dont know about this recipe but I have one that I make that my husband says taste just like an orange julius. I’ve never been to keen on raw eggs or adding sugar when I don’t have to. Here is the recipe if anyone wnats to try it. To me this recipe taste just like the orange starburst.
    8 oz of Orange Juice
    5 frozen whole strawberries
    1 1/2 handful of frozen sliced mangos
    1 heaping tbls of yogurt (I use vanilla)
    Blend till smooth and Enjoy.

    Anika – the worry with salmonella comes from mishandling of eggs, not the inside of the egg. All of the bacteria that causes it can potentially be found on the outside of the shell. As long as you wash your hands after handling the egg and make sure you don’t get shell in your egg whiles, you’ll be fine.

    Salmonella doesn’t come from the whites it comes from the shell

    OMGGGG I am in heaven!! I always loved Orange Julius’s banana strawberry smoothies. Give the positive reviews this recipe received, I was excited to try it as a way to make good use of 17 bucks worth of strawberries we got when we took the girls to pick strawberries. So I followed this recipe…used about a cup of strawberries and 2 bananas instead of the oj….and voila! I have the besttttt smoothies ever now! I’m still sipping on mine now…was too excited not to give my good review right away lol :-) enjoyyyyy, I know I am!!!

    I just read alot of the comments but didnt go though all of them and I think every-one of the comments said it was Delicious and they loved it, but my opinion is i dont really like it. After having a few mouth fulls it kinda made me feel sick so yeh but thats just my opinion and i wont be making it again…

    I’ve made this using vanilla protein powder, ice and orange juice. Tastes just like an orange julius. Is raw egg ok to eat? What about salmonella?

      @LaughinLori From the CDC – http://www.cdc.gov/nczved/divisions/dfbmd/diseases/salmonella_enteritidis/#eggs Your chances are about 1 in 20,000 of getting an infected egg.

    this was amazing but we actually squezed the juice freshly and it made it a lot better.

      Fresh squeezed will always be better, IMHO.

    we always made orange julius as follows:

    tray of ice
    half can frozen orange juice concentrate
    1 cup water
    1 cup milk
    1/2 cup sugar? or to taste
    2 tsp. vanilla extract

    this makes a whole blender full, enough for several people. The milk makes it creamy, but I will try the eggs since we’re on a diet that doesn’t allow much dairy.

    With havin so much written content do you ever get any issues of plagiarism infringement? My website has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any ways to help stop content from being stolen? I’d genuinely appreciate it.
