What is Snow Ice Cream? It is fresh fallen snow, mixed with sweetened condensed milk and vanilla to make ice cream from snow. Snow Ice Cream is the perfect snow day activity!The kids love to make this snow ice cream all by themselves.
Wow is all I can say. We wish for snow every year and nothing. Then finally we got some snow and we hit the jackpot. Everyone was so excited to wake up this morning to see all that white fluffy stuff covering the ground.
The first thing the kids wanted to do was go outside and play and build a snowman. Then we did something really fun and different together we made Snow Ice Cream!! Well, we actually made it twice once yesterday and then again today. I remember snow ice cream when I was younger and lived in Nebraska. What fun to finally make this wonderful sweet treat with my own kids.
I remembered Paula Deen making snow ice cream her show last year, so I knew just where to get the recipe. I love her version because it uses sweetened condensed milk and turns out so creamy. The kids loved making this recipe all by themselves. I think it is the one time they really got along.
When they were finished and got their first taste they loved it!!! so the snow ice cream was a big hit. I hope you enjoy some of our photos from our snow day.
We received a foot of snow, something we probably won't see for along time from now.
