Ah, Orange Snowmen. I first came upon this recipe on AllRecipes a couple of years ago and immediately wanted to make it because of my lifelong love of snowmen. Orange Snowmen are kind of hard to describe. They're intensely orange-y and refreshing, but creamy and slushy and vanilla-y as well. Look elsewhere if you're trying to make an Orange Julius, though, because this is not the same (I actually had a perfect Orange Julius recipe posted but it disappeared, I will re-post it in a couple of weeks). These are definitely their own thing and very good if you love orange juice as much as I do!
This is actually a slightly odd time of year for me to be posting the recipe for Orange Snowmen, because they've become a Christmas morning tradition! Just because we drink them on Christmas doesn't mean they wouldn't be great any other time of year, though. They'd also make a good afternoon snack or dessert, too- not just for breakfast.
Quick Note: This recipe halves very well. I've never made the full batch since it's just the two of us.
