When Life Gives You Snow, Make Ice Cream! Here's the Simple Recipe!

One of our family's favorite things to do in a snowy winter is to make snow ice cream. It's a fun annual tradition that only takes four ingredients and some fresh, clean snow. 

You'll need:

  • snow
  • 1 cup milk (any kind)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • salt

Here's how to make it:

  1. In a bowl, whisk together the milk, vanilla, sugar and a pinch of salt until the sugar is dissolved. 
  2. Place the bowl in the freezer while you bundle up and collect 5 to 6 cups of clean snow. 
  3. Immediately begin to stir the snow into the mixture until an ice cream-like consistency is achieved. 

Add sprinkles or chocolate chips and enjoy!
