Snow ice cream

January 21, 2014

We had yet another snow day today, which means all four of us were home from school.  The kids might not agree with me, but I’m a little over this whole winter thing.  Snow and freezing temps are wearing me down and it’s only January.

To add a little fun to our day, I told Claudia she could make snow ice cream.  Any time that child hears the words “ice” and “cream” together, she’s absolutely delighted.  So imagine combining her favorite food with snow!  She couldn’t have been happier!  After two bowls, she declared snow ice cream to be the best thing she’s ever eaten.

Recipe:  Snow Ice Cream

(found at Gimme Some Oven)

1 c. milk, any fat content
1/3 c. granulated sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
pinch of salt
8 c. clean snow

In a large bowl, whisk milk, sugar, vanilla and salt together until combined. Scoop some fresh, clean snow, and immediately stir it into the milk mixture until you reach your desired consistency. Top with sprinkles and enjoy your snow day!

    I’m so jealous. We don’t get snow here in Houston very often. In fact the only time it really snowed enough to go out and make a snowman and toss snowballs and eat snow ice cream was back in ’72 when I was a kid. We have gotten some snow dustings a time or two but nothing in the past decade or more. I’m soooooo stinking jealous lol. I’m like a big kid when it comes to snow, fireworks and roller coasters lol. Y’all enjoy it. I wish I could have some with y’all.

    This is a great idea! I’ve heard of snow slushies before but never of ice cream. I wish we’d had some snow so that I could try this out!
