snow ice cream recipe

This winter has been the coldest and snowiest that I have ever remembered.  My children enjoy it because we have had far too many winters where there was just no snow to make snowmen.  Well that is not the case this year, we have had multiple batches of snow dumped on us and there isn’t much relief in sight.

One thing that I like to do with my little ones is bring some of that snow inside for them to play with.  When you have little ones being outside is not an option. But we can fill up the sink with buckets of snow and give them some kitchen tools and let them play.  We make sure to put down a few large towels because it will make a mess.  But they will have fun without getting all cold.

Another thing we like to do is make snow ice cream.  We have tried different recipes and this one tastes the best we think. First you have a child go out in the snow and collect a big bowl full of clean fresh snow.

Then you add your sugar.  In this photo it looks like we add by the Tablespoon but actually we added about 1/2 to 1 cup of sugar.  Add it to your tasting.  Some like it sweeter than others.
