  1. Is an Orange Julep just like an Orange Julius drink; I don’t remember egg whites? You’ll have to excuse my lack of awareness! I used to enjoy Orange Julius as a child, but since moving away from Canada, I haven’t had that drink in over sixteen years; that creamy orange juice was so delicious! We might have to try and whip something up soon. 🙂

    1. Yes, it’s basically the same thing! The egg whites are definitely optional; I leave them out most of the time. After seeing your comment, I looked up other recipes and it seems like egg ingredients make an appearance in recipes from the States it seems. One person even recommended using whole eggs and not just the yolks (eek- I don’t know about that). Can’t wait to see what you whip up! I don’t ingest a lot of sugar during a day, so I don’t mind the 1/2 cup of sugar but if there was something to substitute all of that sugar without changing the taste, that would be great! Thank you for the comment!!

      1. Nice! I’m pretty sure that if I had known there was egg in it as a child, I probably wouldn’t have touched it (I was really fussy)! A whole egg… that sounds like crossing a fine line (like a summer ‘eggnog’)! We don’t eat a lot of free sugars either so we wouldn’t be making it with it, but how to keep it’s authenticity? Hmm, we’ll have to get our thinking caps on. Thanks for reposting this recipe as it’s given us lots to think about! 🙂
