It has taken me about 4 years and a dozen snow storms to FINALLY make some snow ice cream with Lily. I knew that it would be incredibly easy, but for whatever reason, we never ended up making it… until this afternoon!
Making ice cream out of snow is a cinch – and it only takes a couple of minutes. One word of advice regarding how much snow to use – the fluffier (lighter) the snow, the more snow you will need. I like to start with about 10 cups of snow, but always keep extra nearby in case I need more. Today we have a VERY light, fluffy snow coming down so I probably used closer to 15 cups of snow.
You will need:
10 cups of CLEAN white snow (possibly more if the snow is super fluffy)
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup milk
How to make:
1. Place snow in a big bowl. Sprinkle sugar over the top of the snow.
2. Slowly add vanilla and milk. I poured mine down the side of the bowl to melt as little of the snow possible.
3. Fold ingredients into each other until you get a slushy-ice-creamy consistency.
4. Enjoy immediately! This sweet treat is especially enjoyed by kids who have played to their heart’s content out in the snow all afternoon!
