Orange Julius – Light with Dairy-Free Smoothie Options


Eat Dairy Free - Your Essential Cookbook for Everyday Meals, Snacks, and SweetsUpdated 2020! Orange Julius outlets can be found in malls across the U.S., but they are no longer in Dairy Queen restaurants.

They’re famous for their Julius drinks (which do contain dairy and eggs), but also whip up some smoothie lines and serve hot dogs. They do have a smattering of non-dairy options, but be sure to ask for a cleaned blender cup when they mix your smoothie.

Orange Julius - Dairy-Free Menu Items

No Dairy (Milk-Based) Ingredients (see disclaimer below)

  • Hot Dogs – Relish Dog

*The Light Smoothies are not shown on their website, but I confirmed with Orange Julius in January 2020 that they are still on their in-store menus.

Other Allergen Notes

  • Their hot dogs do contain wheat (we’re assuming the bun) and the Tropi-Colada Light Smoothie contains tree nuts. But aside from these, all of the other options above are listed without top allergens. They might also be vegan, but you might want to inquire on honey or other animal-derived ingredients.

  2. This is the same list as DQ. There are no Orange Julius products listed. They must have somethings that’s nondairy even in possible cross-contamination?
