There are so many things I’ve seen, shared, and would like to try I tend to lose track of them all. That’s why I was glad today when a friend reminded me of one.
Overnight in our area we got 8-12 inches of snow. Quite a lot!
I spent part of the afternoon outside using the snowblower to clear off our driveway. When I finished I came inside and stood on the rug just inside the doorway trying to catch my breath and warm up. I quick checked Facebook on my phone.
A friend had tagged me in a post about snow ice cream and said, “Tony? Is today the day?”
Even though at that point I was in the mood for coffee I recognized that this was the perfect opportunity to give snow ice cream a try.
So I had my daughters put together the milk, vanilla, sugar, and salt while I headed outside to get the snow.
I went for the snow in the middle of the drift. I figured it would be cleaner.
Back inside the warmth our our house it was time to mix it together.
And add sprinkles. My youngest went with pink and red since it’s February.
In less than 5 minutes we had our first ever bowl of snow ice cream! Time to dish it up and give it a taste.
It was really quite good! We all enjoyed it but in typical fashion for our family we started talking about how we could tweak the recipe or do something different.
“We should try making chocolate snow ice cream,” my oldest suggested. Great idea! Next time we’ll try using chocolate milk. Eggnog might be good to use too.
If you ever get plenty of snow you should really give this a try. It’s really easy and takes only 5 ingredients and 5 minutes! Plus, it’s a memory your kids will never forget… and may even repeat someday with their kids!
Have you ever made snow ice cream? What did you think about it?
