  • 1 container orange concentrate still frozen
  • 5 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4-6 ounces vanilla vodka optional


  • Place all ingredients (including vodka) into the blender and blend until smooth. Serve immediately.


  • If serving this Orange Julius to adults, I suggest adding some vanilla vodka for a Tipsy Orange Julius Cocktail. You can use up to 6 ounces (1 ounce per serving) I personally only use 1/2 ounce per serving. 
  • I like to use unsweetened vanilla almond milk (that has zero grams of added sugar) in the base of this Orange Julius. Canned Coconut milk is another delicious non-dairy option and creates a richer smoothie. 
  • If you are not dairy free, you can use regular milk for this Orange Julius recipe.
  • Be sure to use pulp-free orange juice concentrate for a smoother cocktail.
  • If you use vanilla flavored non-dairy milk, you can omit the vanilla extract.
