Orange Julius Banana Protein Shake

Orange Julius Banana Protein Shake

I LOVE Orange Julius. It’s probably borderline addiction. I remember going with my best friend and each of us getting one and walking around the mall. It was our thing – she introduced me to this addiction! For the longest time, there was no place near me to get an Orange Julius until recently when Dairy Queen started to offer them. I was THRILLED. But that’s a LOT of sugar and empty calories! So I created my own version. And I love it. I could have this every morning as a pick-me-up. If you’re looking to mimic the flavor of an Orange Julius, get a protein punch after a hard workout, or just have a better-for-you drink, this is for you!

    That looks great! I tried one for the first time at DQ a few months ago and it was delicious but had a funky chemical flavor to it. I’d much rather make a homemade version like this.
