What is an Orange Julius?
Orange Julius is an orange-flavored smoothie that’s similar to a creamsicle or dreamsicle. Who doesn’t love oranges and cream?
The smoothie itself is not meant to be a healthy fruit smoothie as it’s made with orange juice and ice cream, which of course contain plenty of sugar.
Think of it as an orange-flavored shake!
Orange Julius Ingredients
- Orange Juice
- Vanilla Ice Cream
- Pure Vanilla Extract
Is there dairy in an Orange Julius?
There is dairy in it from the vanilla ice cream.
If you are looking for dairy-free, there are many non-dairy ice creams in the freezer section of the grocery store.
More than likely, they’ll be found in the health food section or if you have a Whole Foods nearby it’s a great selection.
Nondairy ice cream can be made of almond milk, cocoa butter, sunflower butter, and so on. Typically some type of thickening agent is added to create an ice cream texture without ice crystals forming.
