Orange Julius

Remember Orange Julius at Northwoods Mall? If you're from the Peoria area, you probably do.

It was a real treat to visit oj when I was a kid.

I googled it and they're still around...just not around us. Bummer.

I also found a recipe for oj. Check it out here.

And here's another one:



  1. 1
    -Combine all ingredients, except ice cubes, in blender.
  2. 2
    -Blend 1-2 minutes , adding ice cubes one at a time, until smooth.
Happy Monday, friends!!

Alex and Jeff are off to the FCA banquet today to meet Kurt Warner, NFL quarterback. Thanks for hooking them up, Uncle Mickey!!

  1. I remember that Orange Julius in Northwoods had the best french fries, served in a cup.
    There is an Orange Julius in the mall in Galesburg, great Juliuses, but they don't serve fries.

  2. We have Orange Julius in the West County mall in Saint Louis, but the Juliuses are different, I think? Didn't OJ used to put an egg in it or something?

    Either way, do you remember Farrell's, the ice cream/pizza/games place that was on the corner by Orange Julius?! That place rocked when we were eight.

  3. i'm from chicago and we had those in our malls too.
    thanks for the recipe.
    happy illinois!

  4. We have a crapload of OJs in the malls in Utah. Every mall, to be specific. Which is the only reason my husband agreed to move here. He is addicted.

  5. Orange Julius! Oh how I miss thee! I saw it once at an outlet mall and thoroughly enjoyed the blast from the past.
