Snow Cream

I scream, you scream, we all scream for snow cream!  Well, when we are supposed to get pounded with 6 to 8 inches of snow you have to think of something to do with it all!  Fortunately we only got about 4 inches in the end, but still, it was a great time to try our first attempt at snow cream.

We found a recipe online that called for

4 cups of snow
1 cup of milk
1/2 cup of sugar
1 tsp of vanilla

To get our snow we just set our measuring cup outside and let the snow fall.


It was this full in about one hour!


Then we brought it inside. You just mix and serve so that was easy enough for any kid to do.


We ate some right away and froze some.  It was the best consistency after about 1 hour in the freezer.  It was a little too soupy when fresh made and way to solid after several hours.  Still, it was delicious each and every time.

Yum! I've so wanted to do this but then get weirded out using snow. Ha! I think it's such a neat activity.
