In my previous clone recipes for the refreshing drink that was invented in the 1920s, I used fresh egg whites or Egg Beaters to give the drink its signature frothy texture. That works, but if you want a clone that’s more like the real thing, we need to use the same natural ingredient that is most likely in the scoop of secret powder added to each Orange Julius drink: dried egg whites. I used a brand called Just Whites found in the baking aisle of my supermarket. This all-natural, fat-free powder adds a perfect white froth to your drink when it’s blended, just like the original. This new ingredient, plus less water and more ice in the mix, will give you my best Orange Julius clone yet.

1¼ cups pulp-free orange juice
½ cup water
6 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon dried egg whites
2½ cups ice

Cooking method

1-Combine the orange juice, water, sugar, and vanilla in a blender.

2-Blend on high speed for 30 seconds or until the sugar has dissolved.

3-Add the dried egg whites and ice and blend for 15 to 20 seconds or until the ice is crushed and the drink is frothy. Pour into two 16-ounce glasses and serve with straws.

4-OPTIONAL You can use 2 tablespoons pasteurized egg whites or Egg Beaters if you can’t find dried egg whites. Measure it into the blender along with the ice.
