This Easy Orange Julius is a perfectly refreshing summer treat!
You guys. I totally cheat now when making so many of our meals and snacks. I only make whatever is the easiest and fastest because there are people to love and we just wanna play outside.
I’ve made Orange Julius for our family for years and years. But this little “cheater” idea came about after a local church had offered a food distribution to our community. They had several boxes leftover at the end of the day, and since we have so many kids, they thought of us. How kind and fun! They piled five boxes of food onto our porch, and we were super grateful!
Some of the items included in the box? Vanilla Yogurt, Milk, and Oranges
Does that sound like a delicious Orange Julius to you? Indeed it does. Brayden thought so too. :)
With a huge pile of oranges rolling off of our countertops, we started with an “Orange Peeling Party.” Our kitchen smelled citrus-y good, and soon we had several bags of these frozen orange slices:
Then, I took those frozen oranges and blended them up with the vanilla yogurt and some milk. Easy Orange Julius perfection!
So, if you find yourself with an abundance of oranges, freeze them like this. Then blend them up with yogurt and milk and grab yourself a straw!
Easy Orange Julius
- 2-3 cups frozen orange slices
- 2 cups vanilla yogurt
- 2 cups milk
- Blend the three ingredients together until smooth.
- Serve right away!
Don’t want the added sugar in the yogurt? I usually don’t either, but hey, it was free food! You can make this treat with plain yogurt and honey or maple syrup if you want to cut down on the sugar content. This will be just as delicious and even better for ya!

Love it! I grew up with Orange Julius, so this sounds terrific. We haven’t made any in a long time.
I love how people are blessing you with extra food. May God bless you and your family!
