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 at home that I’ve made quite 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!)
