Snow Ice Cream

Do you love silly? I love silly and this is one of those recipes. Yes, it’s only possible to make when the snow flies… and that will be soon enough. DRAT!

After seeing the snow in Minnesota last week, I must admit I am mentally prepared for winter. It did, however, take a long time to get my head in this “winter state of mind.”

I like to make this recipe with the ones I make snow angles with. You can catch me on any given day in the middle of winter doing just that. Snow angles and snow ice cream just go together don’t you think?

I’m a plain vanilla girl – my favorite color is white even if my son tells me it’s not a color. If you happen to try flavors, let me know which ones worked the best.

Bon Appetit!

Snow Ice Cream

Large mixing bowl of fresh snow

1-2 c. Whole Milk

1-2 tsp. Vanilla Extract

1/2 - 1 c. Sugar

Take your large bowl of snow and stir the snow. Add just enough milk to make the right consistency of ice cream. Start with about 1/2 cup and keep going until you have enough to make the snow creamy.

If you add too much milk and it becomes runny, but all you do is just add some more snow.

Stir in a little vanilla and sugar and you've got yourself some homemade snow ice cream.

You can also add some other flavoring such as chocolate or strawberry syrup if desired.

Snow ice cream can be put in the freezer but it's best served right away.
