Frugal Fun: How to Make Snow Ice Cream (a.k.a. Winter Bliss in a Bowl)

 

Something New to Try
On this fluffy-white, beautiful snow day, I thought it would be fun to make
snow ice cream for the first time.  I remember my parents sharing memories
about making such a yummy treat when they were kiddos (they grew up where
snow was a more frequent occurence than Ft. Worth), and I always thought it
sounded like the ultimate “fun food!”

I do believe this is just the thing to try on this wonderful winter day, and
have already set my largest bowl outside to catch a container-full of winter bliss.

Following is the recipe I found, which comes with great reviews
from
allrecipes.com:

 Snow Ice Cream Recipe

Ingredients
1 gallon snow
1 cup white sugar (or half cup of Splenda to make S/F)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups milk (or half and half for a richer taste)

Directions
When it starts to snow, place a large, clean bowl outside to
collect the flakes. When full, stir in sugar and vanilla to taste,
then stir in just enough milk for the desired consistency.

Serve at once.

 Options:  Try mixing other favorite ingredients such as
cocoa powder, cinnamon, coconut, or chocolate chips. 
Get creative and the kids (big and small) will have a blast
making it.
