Orange Julius Surprise Recipe

HEALTH BENEFITS & FUN FACTS: The original and tasty Orange Julius was created in 1926 when a man named Bill Hamlin brought his recipe of oranges blended with a few choice ingredients to (make it less acidic), to friend and orange juice stand owner, Julius Freed.

Once Julius put this tasty treat on the menu, sales skyrocketed!  The rest, as they say, is history! Carrots are an excellent source of antioxidants, including lycopene, lutein, and especially the carotenoids, featuring beta-carotene.  These antioxidants fight inflammation, which can reduce symptoms of arthritis,  fibromyalgia, and other inflammatory conditions.

They are also a great boost to the immune system, helping fights bacterial and viral infections such as the common cold, ear infections, and urinary tract infections.

    1. Hey Donna! We are working on updating all of our old posts with nutritional info. In the meantime you can use My Fitness Pal or Spark Recipes. Thank you and HAPPY BLENDING!

  1. Yes! It won’t be as “tangy” but you could definitely use orange juice. We recommend the frozen concentrate for better flavor. 🙂 HAPPY BLENDING!
