The white stuff is really coming down out there!
The kids were home from school, and I had a big pot of homemade chicken noodle soup
simmering on the stove, and I told the kids,
Today would be a great day to make snow ice cream!!
I barely got the word out and there was a gallon sized ice cream bucket on the patio catching flakes!
I remember the first time I ever made snow ice cream.
I still have the recipe, written in my first grade teacher, Mrs. Hallstrom’s handwriting.
My Mom would always let my brother and I make this on snow days after that.
This kind of white fluffy snow is the perfect kind for making snow ice cream!
Snow Ice Cream
1 gallon of clean white snow
1 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon Pure Vanilla
2 cups milk (I used a little more)
Combine all ingredients in a big bowl until creamy. I did add a little more milk to mine.
The kids put chocolate syrup on theirs, you could vary the flavors by syrups or adding fruit. you could even use chocolate milk!
Enjoy a snow day with your kids,
make a memory using what Mother Nature is dishing out!
