Cool down with a big glass of refreshing Mango Strawberry Julius! Like a traditional Julius, this smoothie calls for egg whites. The whites provide a boost of protein and create that classic thick and frothy consistency. However, I have also included egg-free options below. The recipe was shared with us by Pacific Foods and calls for their vanilla soy milk, but feel free to use whatever non-dairy milk beverage you have on hand. Either way, this sweet and fresh drink is a breeze to whip up and is so full of flavor!
Special Diet Notes: Mango Strawberry Julius
By ingredients, this recipe is dairy-free, gluten-free, peanut-free, and optionally soy-free and/or nut-free depending on dairy-free milk beverage of choice.
Eggs give the “julius” its unique froth, and I’ve yet to see a truly equivalent swap for them. But you can make an egg-free and vegan version of this mango strawberry julius that’s still delicious! Just substitute 2 tablespoons pea protein powder plus 2 tablespoons water, 1/4 cup frozen banana, or 1 tablespoon flaxmeal or ground chia seeds plus 3 tablespoons water for the egg.
- 1 cup vanilla dairy-free milk beverage (originally tested with this one)
- ¼ cup orange juice
- ¼ cup refrigerated or frozen egg product, thawed, or 2 tablespoons egg white protein powder + 2 tablespoons water (see the notes above for egg-free)
- 1 tablespoon honey or agave nectar
- ½ cup diced, peeled mango
- ½ cup fresh or frozen strawberries (or another berry of choice).
- Add the milk beverage, orange juice, egg product, and honey to your blender. Cover and blend for 10 seconds.
- Add the mango and frozen berries. Cover and blend until the mixture is smooth.
- Immediately pour into 2 glasses and serve.
