Snow Ice Cream!

Is your region experiencing an excess of white stuff? 

I can pleasantly report that we are not!  Highs are in the 50's and no snow in the forecast.  This winter has been wonderful-  unlike the past few years when the drifts were taller than our vehicles and we were snowed in the house for days and days at a time.  My husband grumbles about the crazy Nebraska weather and how unpredictable it can be, but I am relishing the sunshine and hoping that tomorrow doesn't blow up a blizzard. 


This is a picture of my youngest son two years ago posing in front of my neighbor's RV and full size van.  YES!  Your eyes are not deceiving you-  that snow bank about matches the height of an RV!  Now, you can fully understand my gratitude for 50 degree weather.

So far this year we haven't had a chance to make our annual treat of snow ice cream.  It's a family tradition and a fun project perfect for a dreary snow day.  We put all that fresh white fluff to good use and whip up a batch of ice cream.  It's a lot more fun to shovel this treat into our mouths than clear the sidewalks.  Just remember the old adage about not eating yellow snow...

I thought I would share this delicacy for those of you lucky enough to be enjoying a winter wonderland.

Here are the items you will need for Snow Ice Cream:
  • fresh, clean snow-  this is vital, because you don't want any surprises or gravel
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 cups of milk
Here is how you turn snow into ice cream:
  • Fill a large bowl with fresh snow.  We use the old popcorn bowl, but sometimes we need more than one bowl full.
  • In another bowl, mix sugar, salt, vanilla, and milk.
  • Add the snow and stir. 
  • Keep adding the snow until the mixture becomes thick.  You can adjust this easily to suit your tastes.
  • Enjoy! 

What do you enjoy doing on your snow days?
