Snow Cream

How's the social distancing going for you? We had a snow storm at the end of last week which made staying inside all day and away from other people much easier! 

It also meant that the kids got to have a little snow fun in the backyard. While Mathilde threw snowballs at Yetta, Lola and I made snow cream for the first time. I can't believe it's taken us this long to make snow cream before, but judging by how much the kids (and I) loved it, it won't be the last time.

Have you ever had snow cream before? Are you wondering what it is? If, like me, you grew up somewhere with no snow then it's probably something you're not familiar with, but trust me you'll want to try it!

As you can probably guess from the name, and the pictures below, snow cream is ice cream made from fresh snow. It tastes so good and its super easy to make.


Got snow and want to make snow cream for yourself? It's super easy and it only requires three ingredient - two of which you can find in your pantry and one in your backyard! 


Here's how to make snow cream...

What you'll need:
8 Cups fresh snow
1 Can condensed milk
1 Teaspoon vanilla essence



Start by collecting your snow. Make sure to collect fresh snow and avoid anything yellow! We used a cup measurement to scoop up the snow and pour it directly into a large mixing bowl. 


Now add your vanilla essence and the condensed milk.


Give it all a good stir to combine the ingredients. If the snow starts to melt you can always add a little more. We were able to scoop it directly off our "kitchen" surface ie. our outdoor table covered in snow!


And that's it!

Scoop the snow cream into bowls and add any topping you'd like. We went with sprinkles, because sprinkles make everything better - even things that are already delicious!


Enjoy!


Wasn't that easy?

The snow cream melts pretty quickly; much faster than regular ice cream does. Make sure to eat it right away and store any left overs in the freezer.

We have snow forecast again at the end of this week so I have a feeling there will be more snow cream coming soon!
