I hope you are enjoying our beautiful snow today!
We are not posting our weekly Fort Worth Free & Cheap Weekend Events (for Feb. 27 & 28) since most events are cancelled or postponed due to this lovely winter weather. Instead, we decided to “dust off” and share this archived post/recipe from a few years ago — How to Make Snow Ice Cream.
Have fun and stay warm! : )
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 the treat when they were kiddos (they grew up where snow was a more frequent occurrence than here in Fort 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 used, which comes with great reviews from allrecipes.com:
Bon Appetite, y’all!
Snow Ice Cream Recipe
1 gallon snow
1 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups milk (or half and half for a richer taste)
- 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: Personally, we like this recipe best, as is, but you can also 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.
Did you try this recipe? We’d love to hear about your experience in the comments section.
Enjoy and Share! :)
