Orange Julius Recipe in the Vitamix

Most mornings these days I've been making smoothies in my new Vitamix blender.  I decided to adapt one of my previous favorite smoothie recipes, the Orange Julius Smoothie for use in the Vitamix.  I added a couple ingredients to make it a Raspberry Orange Banana flavor, but otherwise it's the same.

Kids loved it, I loved it.  It's a winner!


Raspberry Banana Orange Julius (copy-cat) Smoothie
Ingredients
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup cold water
1/2 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup raspberries
1 banana
1 1/2 cup ice cubes
6 oz frozen orange juice concentrate

Directions
Place into the Vitamix (or blender) in the order listed.  Start on the lowest setting and slowly bring up to the highest.  Blend until smooth.

*note: I used a frozen banana and frozen raspberries.

  1. Looks really good. How long have you had your Vitamix? I see you have a 5200?
