Growing up, I have many fond memories of drinking an Orange Julius. I wasn’t picky-I’d drink them no matter what the weather may be! I found myself wanting to make one for my littles the other day, so I came up with this variation. My Kefir Orange Julius is a healthy alternative to an old classic, yet it still is satisfyingly creamy. It might be my favorite drink yet. I know my boys rate this pretty high since they’ve been asking me to make it every other day!
This shake uses kefir in a tasty way, perfect for those of you who are just starting to use this ingredient in your recipes. It adds a great tartness and I love knowing there’s a special boost! Speaking of boost, you’ll notice I have an optional ingredient, my beloved Baobab Powder. Throw it in there if you have it on hand, it does give this drink an extra kick, but if you don’t have it, leave it out to make this a great NSI drink.

Just curious, how is this an E, with the kefir in it?
I double ferment my kefir by leaving it on the counter for 24 hours! 🙂 This takes it from an “S” to a “Fuel Pull”! The orange is a carb source so that is where the “E” comes from.
This is delicious!! All of the kids liked it so much, I had to make 4 batches. Thank you very much. ?
Love it! 🙂 SO glad you guys liked it!
Wait! Is this milk kefir? Or water kefir? I haven’t done either in a while. Is it 12 hours you usually soak it for? I need a refresher.
Milk! I grab mine from the store and leave it on the counter to ferment for 24 hours. 🙂
