  1. Orange juice concentrate isn’t same as orange juice.  Use frozen canned concentrate, orange juice won’t add as strong flavor. Frozen orange juice concentrate works best.
  2. The secret ingredient in the recipe that adds fluffy/foamy, smooth texture to the drink is a small amount of powdered sugar.
  3. Orange zest is optional step but highly recommended. It enhances orange flavor in orange Julius recipe.
  4. I skipped egg white. The idea of eating raw egg whites and the risk of contracting salmonella made me decide to skip egg whites. Also, finding egg white powder is next to impossible in my part of the world.
