I’d been wanting to make this for awhile, but because of the unseasonably warm temperatures and melting snow we had over Christmas, I had to wait. Sure enough we had quite a few big snowfalls last week and we were good to go in the snow department. You want to do this right after a nice big snowfall so you have lots of fresh, white, fluffy snow to choose from. Don’t use the dirty yellow stuff! Cam absolutely loved this and cried for more when he was done his bowl. I even tried it, and although not the same consistency as ice cream, it does taste just like vanilla ice cream. I was actually surprised with how tasty it was. If you live somewhere with lots of snow, you should definitely try this with the kiddos. Here’s how you make it:
What you’ll need:
Uh oh, there’s a little hand in there trying to steal the milk!
1 large bowl of fresh, white snow – no dirty stuff here!
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup milk (plus more if necessary)
sprinkles – optional
In a large bowl filled with fresh snow, mix in the sugar and vanilla. Add a cup of milk and stir completely. Add more milk as necessary to get to your desired consistency. Divide into bowls and eat immediately. Sprinkles are optional, but necessary with my kids!
Cam LOVED this – just look at his little face!
and my darling little Kirsten always loves a treat!
