You may have noticed that we’ve had snow… With six snow days so far, we’re running out of ideas, and we’ve had to get creative in an effort to keep from going completely stir crazy.
After yet another day trapped inside by a snowstorm on Monday, we needed something special to cheer everyone up. On Tuesday, the snow had stopped but school was still closed, so in the morning we trekked (and I really do mean that) through snow clogged pavements to get to a local café for breakfast.
On the way home we chatted about other activities we could do, now that there was another foot of fresh snow… I suggested snow ice cream and was met with an excited chorus of yes!
So, after lunch we made vanilla snow ice cream.
This is incredibly simple, and very tasty.
You will need:
1. a large bowl of fresh, clean snow (I used a 4 quart bowl)
2. a tin of sweetened condensed milk (I used a 14oz can)
3. a teaspoon of vanilla extract
Just mix them all together and eat immediately :)
I had willing helpers for the mixing…
And very willing helpers for the tasting…
I have to admit, it was very yummy! It had the light, fluffy texture of snow, but tasted just like vanilla ice cream; we added some sprinkles and everyone’s mood was much improved :)
