I can’t decide what exactly to feel about all of you who live in warm climates. On one had…I’m CRAVING a bit of your warm weather and sunshine. On the other hand…bless your heart you can’t make Snow Ice Cream like we can. Everyone should be able to experience the joy of making snow ice cream!
Here’s what you need to make Snow Ice Cream:
A big bowl of snow (um, no substitutions)
Real maple syrup (you can use sugar if you want…but it’s a much healthier dessert if you use real maple syrup)
Heavy Cream (you can use milk too…but OH you really should use cream!)
Go out and gather a big bowl of snow. Clean snow is preferred, unless you enjoy gritty ice cream….
Fill cereal sized bowls with snow.
Drop 1/4 t. of vanilla extract into each bowl.
Drizzle 1-3 Tablespoons of real maple syrup in each bowl, depending on how sweet you want your ice cream to be. I really didn’t mean to drizzle this maple syrup into a heart shape, but the effect is sure lovely, isn’t it?
Pour 4-6 Tablespoons of cream over the top of everything in your bowl.
Stir all the ingredients together until…what do you know…there’s Ice Cream in your bowl! Eat it right away before it melts!
Warning: Contents in bowl will be extremely cold.
My kids had SO much fun making this…and I didn’t feel one bit bad about feeding it to them (twice in one day).
Bring on the snow!! (Okay, but yeah…I’m still ready for some warm days and sunshine!)
