Snow Ice Cream

I saw a recipe on Pinterest for snow ice cream so I thought that today would be the perfect day to try a snowy recipe!

Start with mixing 1 cup of milk, 1/3 cup of sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, and a pinch of salt together.

Time to venture into the wild. It hasn’t let up snowing since 8AM and its STILL going strong!

You are going to need about 8 cups of snow. Travis was a little freaked out by the idea of using snow that was in our yard, so you can also do this with shaved ice. My opinion, #YOLO, eat that snow off the front lawn! I was just careful to pick it away from where Uno likes to hang out.

Mix the snow with your milk mixture.

You’re going to want to mix it until its fluffy and looks like normal ice cream. This picture is about halfway there.

I mixed for probably 3-4 minutes.

Put in bowls and top with your favorite ice cream topping. I went for sprinkles!

Yum! It tastes pretty similar to normal ice cream, just very “airy”. It melts quick though so eat up fast! This also makes a lot of ice cream. Travis and I didn’t even get close to eating it all. Good thing snow is free!

We love snow days (and staying in our PJs all day) 🙂

Uno got a small scoop too! His favorite treat is Sheridan’s Frozen Custard, so I figured he would gobble down some snow ice cream! He cleaned that bowl! I uploaded a video of him eating it to my Facebook. Since I have the free version of wordpress, I don’t think I can upload videos straight from my phone, but I’ll look into it (or maybe some else out there can help me!)

Travis has already got his call for the snow day tomorrow (that’s three days now for him) and I’m just waiting for mine! Fingers crossed!

*******SNOW ICE CREAM UPDATED RECIPE*******

I decided I would try to make chocolate snow ice cream! Success! Here’s what I did:

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 6 cups of snow

Make it just like before, just replacing the vanilla with the cocoa powder. I used less snow this time around since I knew I wasn’t going to give any chocolate to Uno. With less snow, it melts even faster!

What other combinations could I try? Hmmm….
