This vegan Strawberry Orange Julius recipe by the Kitchn was inspired by a childhood fondness for the classic Dairy Queen beverage.
The plant-based recipe replaces egg whites with ground flax, which gives the beverage its slightly thickened consistency, and instead of sugar, it uses agave syrup to sweeten. Orange extract is used to ramp up the citrus flavor without adding extra calories, making the vegan Strawberry Orange Julius a truly guilt-free indulgence.
Vegan beverages are rising in popularity as consumer preferences change to reflect their growing health-consciousness. However, consumers are unwilling to give up their favorite treats, even as they make the switch to a vegan lifestyle, which is where fun recipes like these come in.
