  After watching the episode were Alton Brown makes his own knock off of the Orange Julius, I decided to try it myself.  I found a recipe online and made a few adjustments to make it extra orange-y.  Recipe below the pic.

My Recipe for an Orange Whats His Name

(makes about 2 servings)

6-8oz fresh squeezed orange juice (I think I squeezed 2 oranges)
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup water
2 tbs sugar (I used rounded, but this is more of a matter of taste)
1/2 tsp vanilla
5-6 ice cubes

Combine all ingredients in blender until nice and smooth.

Mind you, this recipe is pretty flexible. I wanted something like an Orange Julius but a bit stronger on the orange and less sweet. Im pretty happy with the results and hope to make it more often in the summer.

That looks mighty good! I heard somewhere that they used to put a raw egg in those drinks. Thanks for the recipe.

Wish Alton Brown would be my valentine.

I worked @ an OJ in highschool. The customers had to ask for the egg, it wasn't a standard ingredient.( usually guys trying to impress someone)  Be on the lookout for bits of finger from cutting and juicing all those bleeping oranges. Just kidding.  The way I remember: Restaurant/baretender size blender cup filled most of the way with crushed ice, add 8 oz of OJ, one scoop "milk" powder. (I'm guessing 2 oz and have no idea of other ingredients as it came in plain white packages) fill to full line with sugar water. you will see it fill in the gaps between the ice as it fills up. then blend 8 to 10 seconds.  All  other flavors contained OJ (4 oz) and then 6 oz of whatever fruit except the raspberry which was only 4oz. If i was to make this at home i'd use ice and juice with some pulp.  Back in the day there was a creamy version that contained "coconut"  powder( 1 oz) in addition to the milk powder, no idea what the home substitute would be.

 Oh, I used to love the one with coconut!  And the raspberry one.  I think I might try this other version too and treat myself to a little more sugar.
