Snow Ice Cream

It’s snowing! What can you do with all that snow…besides admiring its beauty, and then shoveling it into piles?

Try eating it as a delicious dessert. When our girls were growing up, fresh snow meant creating snow angels, tractor tire tracks (I’m a farm girl), Fox and Geese games, honey poured over snow for instant sweet treats, and snow ice cream.

When it snows, I’m out there with a big bowl and spoon, gathering snow for ice cream. Collect fresh snow that contains no dirt or other debris. And yes, I know about “don’t eat  yellow snow”!

Ingredients:

  • Approximately 2 quarts of fresh snow
  • 2 tsp vanilla, or to taste
  • Approximately 2 cups condensed milk, cream or coconut cream. For non-dairy you may use any nut or alternative milk of choice to make a more icy “cream”
  • Approximately 1 cup sugar or other sweetener to taste

 

Instructions:

  • Blend a half cup of milk at a time into the snow,  until you create  a very thick slush
  • Add vanilla
  • Work in the sugar to sweeten your mixture to preferred taste
  • Adjust by adding more snow if needed to thicken to desired consistency
  • Add flavoring as desired, or drizzle with chocolate or coffee syrup

The final consistency will be similar to a thick creamy vanilla slushy. Its cold!!! So eat it slowly or you’re gonna get a super brain freeze. I’d post a photo here but we haven’t had enough snow yet to make some. I’ll add that later when winter finally arrives.
