When life hands you a foot of snow, make SNOW ICE CREAM!!!! This is the second year of this fun tradition. Special thanks to our church friend Susan for the yummy recipe. This is a great budget saver when ice cream is a staple in your household and you can’t get to the store because of the weather! (Nate tells me that this costs about 65 cents!)
Here is the recipe we use:
Snow Ice Cream
1 gallon fresh snow (exact measurement is not necessary, just grab a big bowl)
2 cups milk
1 cup sugar
2-3 teaspoons Vanilla
Put the snow in a bowl and add the other ingredients on top.
Then stir. If the snow melts too much in the process, you can place it in the freezer for a little bit before serving.
Serve with your favorite toppings.
There are some other benefits to the fluffy white stuff. For example, here is a tip I learned from one of my kids yesterday: if you get thirsty while sledding just grab a handful of snow and pop it in your mouth. They did inform me that it was clean, white snow! 🙂
