Paleo Orange Julius

Author Autumn @wholefoodfor7


Blender Method 1

  • 1/2 12 oz OJ frozen concentrate can
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk *can sub other non-dairy milk
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 heaping cups ice

Blender Method 2

  • 2 cups orange juice, frozen into cubes
  • 1 cup non-frozen orange juice
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk *can sub other non-dairy milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup honey

Ice Cream Maker Method

  • 3 cups orange juice
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup honey

Optional ingredient for all: 2-3 scoops collagen powder


Blender Method (1 or 2)

  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender and combine at high speed until well combined and frothy. Serve immediately.

  2. Extras can be stored in the freezer, thawing to eat. OR my kids loved making these into creamsicle like popsicles!

Ice Cream Maker

  1. Blend well all ingredients prior to adding to ice cream maker. Mix in ice cream maker to desired thickness. This is our favorite method as it turns out nice and thick like a Sonic Orange cream slush or, if you let it go even longer, like a sorbet. Yum!

    I’ve made this several times this summer and my whole family loves this treat. I’ve even omitted the honey a few times and my kids don’t miss the extra sweet. I add chia seeds or protein powder if it’s serving as a breakfast smoothie.

    • I’m so happy your family has enjoyed this recipe! Thank you!

    Made this this morning with breakfast and it was excellent. My 5 year old needed a little motivation to start day 2 of virtual learning and a special smoothie with breakfast was just it. Absolutely delicious!
    Thank you!
