I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for Snow-Cream

Here's our attempt at having a little snow-fun. Since we had drifts almost 3 feet high of pristine, white snow, we thought we'd try the snow ice cream creation recipe.

Collect 8 cups snow (supposed to do this in a bowl as it falls...but our bowl would have been buried under a giant drift)

Add to the snow:
1 1/2 Cups Sugar
1 to 1 1/2 tsp Vanilla
1 Cup Milk (use more/less to achieve ice cream consistency)

Mix together all ingredients until mixture is desired consistency.

Serve and enjoy!

Our 8 cups of snow in a big bowl.

Andrew and Nathan adding sugar.

Nathan helps add milk and stir.

Two crazy boys with their ice cream. Nathan is giving a nice posed effect and Andrew is showing off his culinary skills by pretending to stir.
I have to say I was stunned at how close to ice cream this was. Unfortunately, ours had way too much vanilla since I use pure vanilla extract instead of imitation vanilla. I should have reduced the vanilla. Just add about 1/2 the milk and see if you need the rest. We ended up needing a little more than a cup to get the right texture.
Next time, I may try chocolate!
