By Gloria Pitzer, The Great Imitator’s Cookbook (Secret RecipesTM, Marysville, MI; Oct. 1999, p. 31
2 C club soda
1/2 C light Cool Whip
1/2 C orange Tang powder
1/2 C dry creamer powder
8-10 ice cubes, smashed
Blend briefly, until it’s smooth and frothy. Makes 3 heavenly drinks!
NOTE: Other versions of this recipe have been printed in at least 14 of Gloria Pitzer’s cookbooks since 1977. The company for the original “Orange Julius” drink was VERY upset over Gloria’s imitation(s) of their product and kept threatening her with lawsuits unless she changed the name of her recipe(s); which, originally, had been called “Orange Judas” and first appeared in Gloria Pitzer’s The Secret Restaurant Recipes Book (Nat’l Homemakers Newsletter, Pearl Beach, MI; Jan. 1977) in 3 different versions. The many different versions that Gloria developed over the years to imitate the original have also been re-titled as “Orange Justice”, “Orange Brutus” (also “Strawberry Brutus”), “Orange Jeweless” and “Orange Glorious”. All of them make the same great tasting drink!
