Updated February 2023! Orange Julius outlets can be found in some malls across the U.S., but they are no longer in Dairy Queen restaurants. Dairy Queen rolled the Orange Julius line into their own menu, and proceeded to change the recipes. And unfortunately, it doesn’t look like Orange Julius has dairy-free options anymore.
Orange Julius is famous for their Julius drinks (which do contain dairy and eggs), but they also whipped up some smoothie lines and they used to serve hot dogs. Their Premium Smoothie selection used to include a whole array of Light Smoothies. The regular smoothies were made with dairy, but the Light Smoothies were all dairy free.
Those fruit-heavy “light” blends weren’t sold at every location, but the company confirmed they were still available as of 2020. But it looks like they might have finally fallen off the menu. In fact, their selection overall appears rather streamlined. But if you do spot a return of the Light Smoothies, they may still be a good non-dairy and vegan option!

Where to Find Orange Julius
During their heyday, Orange Julius peaked with well over 5000 locations in kiosks, mall counters, and in combination with many Dairy Queen locations. But they have been vanishing over the years. At last count, there were just a few hundred, and the Julius options at select Dairy Queen stores are a distant relative of past recipes. See the website below for addresses and hours.
