How many of you have heard of snow cream before??? I think it is totally a “south thing”:) My husband and I both grew up in South Dakota around ALOT of snow for many years and we had never heard of it before we moved down south. A couple of years ago it snowed down here and all of a sudden I see “Making some snow cream” all over everyone’s Facebook status's . So I had to see what all the hype was all about. Here is our take on making snow cream in case there are some of you out there that have never heard or made it before:) If you have made it before we would love to hear how you make it!!!
All you need is a few basic ingredients: Milk, sugar, vanilla, and snow
Blend: 1c milk, 1/2c sugar, 1/2tsp vanilla
Stir in enough snow to make snow cream to an ice cream consistency.
Some variations: Substitute canned cream for milk for a heavier flavor. Or add Nestles Quick for a chocolate snow cream or use instant cocoa mix. Another variation is to add a raisins and cinnamon or add a beaten egg for a nog taste. Or puree any fruit like a banana and add to the mixture. We have tried the chocolate snow cream and that was really good too!!! Get creative:)
Note: Always make sure the snow is clean. It takes at least one to two hours for snow to clean the pollutants from the air, then use only snow that has fallen after that. Obviously also make sure that you do not collect the snow where animals or birds have been. Cleanliness first!!!!
This is a treat even the younger ones can make for the whole family!!!!
