This recipe for Snow Ice Cream is a super simple treat to make when you get that first, fresh snowfall of the winter season. A kid favorite!
SNOW ICE CREAM
This particular recipe is pretty special to my hubby. He has some pretty fond memories of his Grandpa making it for all the grandkids. Growing up in northern Indiana, Gene was used to seeing the white stuff a lot during winter. And you learn to make the best of something that can easily become a nuisance. But here in our part of Virginia, we don’t see it quite that often. So I thought this special event deserved a special, just for fun recipe.
TIPS FOR MAKING SNOW CREAM:
- We all know the basic rule of snow gathering.- no yellow snow. You want that fresh stuff. The stuff no one has stepped on and you want to get it not too long after the snowfall.
- Vanilla extract is not absolutely necessary but it really adds a kick of flavor. You can also use mint extract for a twist!
- Don’t have sweetened condensed milk? Just use a combination of milk and sugar. You’ll have to stir and taste until you get it to the texture and flavor you love!
8 cups snow (or shaved ice)
HOW TO MAKE SNOW ICE CREAM:
