Snow Ice Cream

Wow. We have more snow than I have ever seen at one time in my 28 years living in Kansas City. It's both a blessing and a curse, but we're making the most of it! I am thankful I am organized enough that we have everything we need to be stuck at home for a few days. None of those snowy diaper or milk runs around here! We're just fine!

There is even enough snow that I got to try SNOW ICE CREAM for the first time! I was skeptical, but YUM. Even my husband went back for seconds. Here is how we did it.

1 gallon of snow (I filled a big mixing bowl.)
2 cups of milk
1 cup of white sugar
1 tablespoon of vanilla
1/2 teaspoon of almond extract

Basically, you just pour everything in to the mixing bowl with the snow and mix! I did go slowly with the milk to make sure I didn't make the mixture too soggy! The addition of the almond extract was my idea. Another idea would be to sub the almond extract for peppermint extract and to crush up candy canes for a topping. YUM!

  1. *sob* This looks so wonderful. Unfortunately, living in Mississippi means we don't get to use a recipe like this.

  2. I used to have this when I was a kid, it was fun to make.

  3. How fun! Wish it snowed in FL!!! you should link this post up to Kids in The Kitchen. On my blog every Thurs!

  4. The boys would LOVE this. Not that I want any snow to try it out ... LOL :) Thanks so much for sharing ;)

  5. Oh - my mom made this when we were kids! I LOVED it - the best part of a snow day! Thanks for reminding me - I too am stuck in a snow drift. Perfect timing!

  6. Oh how fun. I never thought of that. We are new to the snow. Coming from Texas,we never had much. However, here in Chicagoland, we had 12 inches on Saturday. We sure could have made ice cream with that. I will remember this for the next big snow dump! Thanks for linking to TMTT.

  7. I've never had snow ice cream before! What a cool idea =D

  8. Glad to hear you don't have to have snowy emergency runs to the store. It's great to be organized! This snow ice cream recipe sounds like so much fun! :-) Enjoy the snow, and wishing you a Happy 2010!

  9. We have lots of snow too and I was just thinking about this yesterday! Lots of good memories!

  10. What a fun idea! Maybe the kids can have a little snow fight outside after a bowl of this! ;) Too bad, my kids don't get to experience white winter at where we live.

    I'm having the very first GIVEAWAY on my blog. Please stop by to submit your entry. Good Luck!
