Waking up to a yard blanketed in snow is always exciting for a child. After your kids have had all the outdoor fun they can handle, bring them indoors for a special treat—snow ice cream!
Turning a fresh bowl of pure-white snow into a delicious treat is an easy and fun way to impress the kids. Who knows? Instead of wishing for a snow day to get a day off from school, their hopes may turn toward making a scoop of yummy snow ice cream.
Snow Ice Cream
Prep time: 20 Minutes
4-5 cups fresh, clean snow
1 cup milk
½ teaspoon vanilla
½ cups sugar
1. When it snows, place a large bowl outside to gather 4-5 cups of fresh, clean, unpacked snow. Place it in your freezer until ready for use.
2. In a separate bowl mix together milk, vanilla and sugar until sugar is completely dissolved.
3. Slowly add snow to your mixture, stirring constantly, until it resembles ice cream.
