If you ate this as a kid, you’ll recognize the flavor immediately. There’s hardly a child anywhere who doesn’t go wild with excitement over a bowl of ice cream made out of snow. You might want to supervise the snow collecting to make sure it’s clean and white, but once you’re all back inside, let your child stir in the sugar and vanilla and pour the creamy milk over his or her own bowl of snow. The mixing is half the fun!
- Yield: 1 Serving
- ¼ cup whole milk
- 2 tablespoons sugar (or to taste)
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1½ cups (more or less) clean, fresh snow
- In a small jug, mix the milk, sugar, and vanilla.
- Fill a serving bowl with the fresh snow.
- Pour the sweetened milk over the snow, stirring to combine. Some people like their snow cream stiff and snowy; others like it slushy and milky. How the snow cream turns out will also depend on whether the snow is light and fluffy or heavy and slushy. Pour on as much sweetened milk as looks good to you. Take the time to experiment to make the snow cream taste right. Your kids will remember the taste forever.
