Snow Day Ice Cream
This winter has been BRUTAL. Living in Nebraska, we are used to snow, but this COLD? It’s good for nothing. One thing about this winter, though, almost all of the snow, has missed us.
Snow Ice Cream Recipes
Old Fashioned Snow Cream
Back in the 1950’s they referred to this frozen winter treat as “snow cream.” It was actually made by making a traditional vanilla custard with eggs on the stovetop, then letting it cool before mixing the snow into it to make it. That just sounds like a whole lotta work doesn’t it?
My original recipe actually called for eggs, but I make it without these days. Apparently, in the 1970s nobody knew you shouldn’t eat raw eggs? I’m still here, but I figured, I’d leave them out anyway.
Of course, the custard option cooked the eggs and made them safe. But I am all about instant gratification, and not adding extra steps to recipes. How about you?
Snow Ice Cream Ingredients
Doesn’t get much easier than a can of sweetened condensed milk, some vanilla extract, and clean white fluffy snow. Well, I guess unless you live where there isn’t snow, then this recipe might pose a problem.
I love using vanilla bean paste instead of just plain ‘ol vanilla extract. It gives it that extra depth of flavor. My favorite is this organic one from Taylor & Colledge. But don’t fret, it’s not a deal-breaker if you don’t have it.
How to Make Snow Ice Cream with Sweetened Condensed Milk
You are going to need a big bowl. Combine all of the ingredients together.
It will be really slushy.
Pour it into a metal baking pan and place it in the freezer. I typically use a loaf pan.
In a couple of hours, it’ll be ready to scoop and enjoy!
Adding some sprinkles always makes it more fun, right?
