Courtesy of Winter Storm Janice, I was treated to lots of snow and a couple of snow days with my kids. We decided to take advantage of both things and make (and eat) some snow ice cream together.
Snow Ice Cream
At the first sign of snow, I put a bowl out on our patio table to collect snow. The next day we brought in our very full bowl (pictured below).
Because the bowl was so full, I had to transfer the snow to a larger bowl. Then I added one can of sweetened condensed milk and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. After mixing it well, it looked like this:
I know, it’s not very pretty. My kids weren’t impressed with how it looked either. This is why they were shocked when they finally braved a bite and discovered it tastes just like store-bought vanilla ice cream! Everyone from my 6-year old to my 16-year old gave this a big thumbs-up.
If you don’t count the length of time it took to collect the snow, this recipe literally took less than a minute to make. A quick and easy treat for snow days!
