My family loved this. It was very easy to make. I would say it yields more like 4 servings than 6 though.

The original Orange Julius had an egg in it. And that's the way we always made ours when my kids were growing up. It's more nutritious than without the egg. I know they removed it because of salmonella issues but we lived on a farm and had fresh eggs daily and it wasn't a problem for us.

To improve this recipe, omit the water altogether. Reduce the sugar to 1/4 cup powdered sugar, which doesn't leave it grainy. Then I give it 5 stars!

This drink was okay. I think I would reduce the sugar next time and maybe omit the water for more milk. It tasted good but separated quickly.

So glad I finally got around to making this. It is absolutely delicious!! Used a 1/4 cup of sugar. My overnite guests will be so impressed.

I made this today as part of our ' big breakfast diet'- we eat most our days carbs and sweets in the morning having protein and veggies at dinner.It was super sweet, not in a good way. Next time I'll cut way back on the added sugar. But it was good and I will be making this drink again

This is the best orange-drink recipe I have ever found! It is called "Orange Julius" in Recipes Across America. Such a good combination!!!
