Alton Brown freezes 6 1/2 ounces of fresh orange juice into cubes to start his fresh "Orange Delicious" recipe. To make Alton's recipe, place the cubes in a blender with 2 ounces of fresh orange juice, the zest from 1/2 an orange, 1/2 cup of whole milk, 1 tablespoon powdered sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Blend until very smooth, approximately 45 seconds, and serve immediately.

A variation on the classic Orange Julius recipe includes substituting milk with coconut milk or almond milk for a dairy-free smoothie. Recipe reviewers recommend adding 1 egg white to the recipe, blending with the other ingredients, for a classic Orange Julius frothy top. However, consuming raw egg may lead to food poisoning.
