There is nothing is more refreshing than a great Strawberry Julius on a hot summer day! This copycat recipe is creamy, fresh and totally delicious!
Here are a few more refreshing drinks we love – Fresh Cherry Lemonade Slush, Fizzy Yogurt Drink, and Non-Alcoholic Sangria.
A couple of weeks ago, my husband and I stopped off at Orange Julius on our way home from running errands. I hadn’t been there in years and I forgot how much I LOVE that place! (It is so good.) I have a copycat Orange Julius recipe that I’ve made a few times over the years, but our little impromptu trip to Orange Julius reminded me that they also sell Strawberry Julius. (Seriously, that drink is heaven!)
A few days later, that Strawberry Julius was still on my mind, so I set out to find a recipe. I wanted to be able to recreate that delightful drink and have endless yumminess in my own home, whenever I wanted. I made just a few tweaks ’til the recipe was pure perfection and I am sharing it with you today. (You’re welcome!)
How To Make A Strawberry Julius
Puree – Before adding the rest of the ingredients, puree the cup of strawberries in the blender.
Blend – And the remaining ingredients to the blender and mix until everything has fully blended together and the liquid is a little frothy. While I haven’t met a Strawberry Julius I didn’t like, my favorite daiquiri mix is the Master of Mixes brand.

I just made this & am drinking it now. It’s The best copy cat julius I’ve made so far.
‘ Thanks for sharing the recipe.
I had totally forgotten about Orange Julius – I’m so glad you reminded me! They had an orange julius in the mall when I was a kid and it was a tradition to stop whenever we were there, but sadly it disappeared years ago and I haven’t thought or heard of it since.
I seem to remember we also had a copycat recipe that involved powdered creamer, but I guess milk works too….and it’s not nearly as gross as powdered creamer.
I love your blog and am so inspired! This drink looks very good, too.
Looks delish! Perfect for a hot summer day! I love orange julius too, but this is a great alternative to the orange!
With the heat we’ve been getting… this sounds absolutely delicious! Thanks for the recipe!
Oh that looks and sounds so delicious. I have everything but the dacqari mix. 🙁 Thanks for sharing this.
Looks beautiful! My strawberry drink of choice is rather less healthy I hate to say… featuring half a tub of Ben and Jerries strawberry shortcake frozen yoghurt… YUM!! =) x
I like Almond extract in mine too.
mmmm looks totally delish!
