Homemade Snow Ice Cream!
Snow Ice Cream
15 cups fresh, clean snow (approximate, that's about what my largest bowl holds)
1 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons real vanilla extract
1-2 cups of milk (this will vary depending on how dry or wet the snow God sent is!)
Mix all ingredients together well in your large bowl, starting with 1 cup of milk and adding more as needed. You can see in the photo above that the consistency will be similiar to 'real' ice cream when it's ready.
If the mixture starts to get too 'soupy' or liquidy, just add more snow! Enjoy!
Please note that you want to use *clean* snow! I usually scoop it from the top of our covered grill, ledge on our outdoor fireplace, or somewhere like that. Not off of the ground, and I always scrape the top off, not digging down deep enough that you're actually scraping the object you're getting the snow off of.
