Snow Ice Cream

This is the current scene out our back door right now:

We’re currently mid-blizzard. There’s about six inches on the ground and the heaviest bands of snow are just getting to us now. It’s been snowing for about nine hours and we’ve yet to see a plow. It’s safe to say we’re snowed in. 

Ice cream might seem like an odd treat for a day like today but it’s so fun I had to make it anyway. This is so kid-friendly; I wish we had made this growing up!

The best way gather the snow for this is to put a large, clean bowl out when it starts snowing to collect it. If you’re currently getting hit by the blizzard, your bowl should fill up in no time!

  1. I love snow cream. We’ve been making it as long as I can remember. Due to our white Christmas I introduced my great niece and two great nephews to snow cream last night. They loved it.
