15 of the Best CopyCat Recipes


You know how sometimes you get a craving for something but the place that sells or makes it is closed – or worse, miles upon miles away? I’ve been there… Orange Julius. As a teen, it was my FAVORITE mall-walking drink. It brings back so many memories, and for the longest time we didn’t have an Orange Julius (or a Dairy Queen that sold it) anywhere close to us. The copycat recipe that I had came close and it was such a relief to satisfy that craving with the orange deliciousness whenever I wanted.
