It’s definitely winter. Even here in the South there is snow on the ground for the second time this month, power is out due to ice, and Facebook is full of pictures of snowmen, snow angels, and icy roads. What does my niece do in light of all of this winter mayhem? She makes ice cream, of course! And from her creation and photos comes today’s recipe, Snow Ice Cream!
I’ve always known that I have cool brothers, but my brother Jeff got lucky with his wife Annie, and his two daughters Natalie and Emily. Fortunately, that meant I got lucky, too! I do have the coolest nieces ever, after all. In fact, they can really be considered contributors to the blog–they give me great ideas. (They gave me great info for a teenager gift guide at Christmas, but I never wrote the post…oops…)
Emily started the contributions with the idea for my Bacon Wrapped Apples with Chocolate Drizzle. She and her friends had done it. My first thought was…eww…but the more I thought about it, the more I knew it was a great idea…and it was! It’s a great, unique appetizer idea. I do like it best without the chocolate, though…
Not to be topped, now Natalie has provided me with pictures and a full recipe for her latest creation, Snow Ice Cream! I’m excited about it because I actually have snow outside and can make some!!! All that you need is milk, sugar, vanilla, and snow. How simple is that? Oh, and like I told Natalie this afternoon, make sure you stay away from the yellow snow…especially if my brothers or my husband are around…haha!
All you have to do to make this awesome creation is gather your ingredients…milk…
Sugar and vanilla…
Finally, add snow!
Stir it up, stick it in the freezer, and…
- 1.5 Cups of Milk
- 1/3 Cup of Sugar
- 1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
- 6.5 Cups of Snow
- Gather your snow in a bowl and place in the freezer.
- In a large bowl, whisk together your milk, sugar, and vanilla extract.
- Gradually add your snow, continuing to whisk until the consistency is too thick to stir.
- Place your mixture in the freezer for approximately 10 minutes, or until the ice cream reaches your desired consistency.
- Scoop, serve, and enjoy!
Have you made Snow Ice Cream before? What would you add?
