I had no idea what orange julius was when my husband suggested to make a homemade version of it. I totally get that everyone, but me, here in the U.S. knows and loves orange julius. But I’m from another planet, you know. 🙂

Oh boy, was I missing out big time!

It took me a couple of trials and errors to perfect the recipe, and now I’m just drinking it non-stop to make up for the lost time!

I knew I had perfected the recipe when hubby gave two thumbs up and chugged two glasses in a row. Yes, it was that good!

Honestly, I’m not a huge fan of frozen fruit concentrates, but for this recipe you absolutely need it. I tried regular orange juice, and it just doesn’t cut it.

And since my husband is on a dairy-free diet (just temporarily, thank God!), I used coconut milk and a little bit of cream of coconut to boost the coconut flavor. If you don’t have cream of coconut, no need to run to the store for it though.

By the way, coconut + orange = HEAVEEEN. You’ve got to try it, if you haven’t already.
