When Life Gives You Snow, Make Snow Ice Cream!

by Warren Clark March 14, 2017

While I spent most of my younger years growing up in the south, my family spent a few years in West Virginia as part of my dad's Navy career.  Some of my fondest memories about those years were the winters.  (Granted, I was just a little boy so winter nuisances like shoveling snow and salting sidewalks weren't really on my radar back then.)  And of the winter memories, the ones that stand out most were of my mom making snow ice cream for my sisters and me.  

So when Derrick and I moved to Pennsylvania a few years ago, you can imagine I was quick to introduce him to this childhood favorite.  I assumed most everyone in this part of the country was familiar with this "delicacy", but after I mentioned making it during our last snowfall, I got a few puzzled glances.  So now that Stella has dumped several inches of the main ingredient upon us, I figured I'd share the simple recipe for Snow Ice Cream with everyone

5-6 cups of FRESH snow
1 cup cold milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Whisk together the milk, sugar, and vanilla in a small bowl.  Set aside.  Gather your fresh snow and place in a large mixing bowl.  Slowly stir in the milk mixture until you reach your desired consistency.  (Note: Snow ice cream won't be as smooth and creamy as regular ice cream, but that doesn't affect its deliciousness!)  Then scoop into bowls and serve.  And don't hesitate to add some sprinkles if you want.  Snow ice cream will melt quickly . . .so if it begins to melt, put it in the freezer for 10-15 minutes.
