Although it’s now October and fall is almost upon us, it still feels like summer with the 100/90 degree Arizona weather. My mom started making these Strawberry Julius’s last week and we can’t get enough of them! It’s a copycat recipe from the Dairy Queen menu. You can make it thin like strawberry milk or thick like a strawberry smoothie. Either way is delicious! Cool down with this creamy, frothy and fruity drink!


Homemade Strawberry Julius

1 cup milk

1 cup ice

½ cup sliced strawberries (replace with ½ cup of orange juice for an Orange Julius!)

¼ cup sugar

¼ tsp vanilla


Get your strawberries from Mortimer Farms!

Remember that 97% of your milk you find in the dairy case at the grocery store is from our local Arizona dairies. Drink milk, it’s local!



Combine all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth. Add more ice and strawberries for a thicker smoothie. It’s that simple and easy!
