Snow Ice Cream

Snow day!!  Since Jackson goes to school twice a week, I can be excited about snow days again!!  I wanted to do something fun with him today, but we're all still fighting colds so I didn't think playing outside would be the best.  He actually asked for ice cream this morning, and little did he know I already had a plan...snow ice cream!
It's very easy, quick, and of course cheap to make.  In a medium sized bowl, combine 1 cup milk, 1/2 cup sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla.  Stir until the sugar is dissolved.
Go out and collect 4-5 or more cups of clean fresh snow - don't pack it, just scoop.

Add the snow to the milk mixture a little at a time, stirring to mix.  Stop when the consistency gets how you want it.  We probably could have added a little snow more snow to ours, or even put it in the freezer for a bit, but we were impatient and wanted to try it.  Here's our finished product....
Actually, those were almost the finished products.  Here's the actual finished product, with an added ingredient suggested by Jackson.
Time to taste!  Was it a success?
Definitely!

Looks good. This could very well be a desert to serve when you have guests. I'm sure that adults will love it as much as children do.

This is such a sweet idea. My kids would think I was the best mom on the planet if I told them we were going to make ice cream from some of the snow in the back yard. You are the coolest. I featured your snow ice cream on my blog. You can find the link here:
