Orange Julius Strawberry Banana Smoothie Recipe

As with most people, when the new year started, I wanted to start being more healthy. Included in that broad category are eating more fruits & veggies and eating breakfast. Thus, I became a smoothie-aholic.

Mostly I would throw whatever fruits & juice from the fridge into the blender (mostly orange juice, bananas, & strawberry yogurt). But now I am starting to branch out a little bit. If you follow me on Instagram at all, you will notice my multi-colored smoothie concoctions. I loved to add spinach, avocados, honey, &/or dry oats. Some combinations are excellent, others are dumped down the drain.

But no matter how much I branch out, I still find that the strawberry, banana & orange combination is my favorite of all. If you have ever been to the Orange Julius and tried one of their Strawberry Banana smoothies, you will know why.

Orange Julius Strawberry Banana Smoothie Recipe

  • 3 oz Orange Juice (you could also use Orange Cubes!)

  • 1 cup frozen strawberries  (or fresh, having them frozen makes your smoothie a bit colder)

Woo Hoo I’ve got all those ingredients in the house & I’m going in there right now and make those for my hubby & I. Sounds like that’s just what we need. It’s so hot out I’m sure that would be a great refreshing drink for us right about now. Thanks for sharing. Won’t you come by me and sign up on my linky to share your recipe with my readers too?

This recipe interests me because you say it’s your favorite ever. I don’t know that I’ve ever had exactly this, but I love my Orange Banana and Carrot smoothie (I use cooked and cooled carrots).
I’ve pinned this to try. It looks like such a pretty color!

I found that I really did have all the ingredient (almost, I subbed orange pineapple juice for the orange juice).
This is delicious and definitely sweet enough as is.

Thanks for the great recipe! I was craving an Orange Julius smoothie but not the price. I also agree with Julie, it is perfectly sweet as you wrote it and anymore sugar would override the yummyness of the fruits!
