Snow Ice Cream

Over the weekend a snowstorm called “Nemo” dropped more than 2 feet of snow on Massachusetts. In our yard the snow measured in at 28-30 inches, so we are still looking at quite a lot of it 5 days later. We’ve seen a lot of snowmen, igloos, forts, tunnels and other things built out of the towering banks around here, but today CJ and I decided to do something different. We ate it!

My friend Denise pointed me to this recipe so we decided to try it. We are so glad we did!

First we gathered our supplies: snow, condensed milk, and vanilla.

Pour on the condensed milk and vanilla (we used up what was in our bottle, it was closer to a tablespoon than a teaspoon!)

Stir!

We stopped when it looked like this. Newer, powdery snow might act a little differently.

Lip-licking good! I think it tastes like a Starbucks Vanilla Creme Frappuccino! Easy and delicious.

Please note that this recipe makes a lot. We containerized the rest for later (and sharing with Dada) but I don’t know yet how well it will keep. Next time, I’ll probably cut the recipe in half.

  1. We froze some, too. Richard chopped it with a knife later. We had used a potato masher initially for mixing, which was pretty good. Using it again last night helped to break it up again. I had thought about putting the remaining mix in popsicle holders. We never got around to it.
