Snow cream

Yesterday was a snow day here in Tennessee.  There wasn’t a ton but just enough to get outside and play for a bit and most importantly make some snow cream.  It always amazes me how much Camden remembers from when he was just a toddler.  When he saw the snow he immediately asked if we could scoop it up and make some “snow ice-cream.”  So without hesitation I said of course!  I googled the Paula Dean recipe we used in the past and we made a fast easy snow day treat and some sweet memories too.

The Paula Dean recipe calls for:

8 cups of fresh snow or shaved ice
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp vanilla extract

We found that using about a quarter of the can of sweetened condensed milk is really all you need.  We added half the can and had to add lots more snow to make it edible.  The snow will condense down quite a bit so don’t hesitate to go back for another bowl full.  This amount was made with two heaping bowls of snow and was just right.  A little creamy, a little icey and a whole lot of yummy.

Most of the fun is in the making it and it is so simple you really can’t go wrong.  I hope you all enjoy making some snow cream of your own and enjoying this fun winter treat.
