Snow Day + Snow Cream

We've had inches and inches of snow turning the Northwest into a winter wonderland. The kids are LOVING it! They've been playing in it for hours.

When I was a kid, one thing we used to when it snowed was make ice cream out of snow, or SNOW CREAM! We never really had a recipe, but one of my Facebook friends posted one, so I thought I'd share.

Start with 4-6 cups fresh, clean snow

Let your helpers measure ;)

Add one cup of milk, cream or half & half and 1/2 cup sugar (more or less, depending on how sweet you like it).

Add 1 tsp. vanilla extract or other flavoring (we've tried almond and coconuts flavors and both are delicious). Lightly mix and serve.

Recipe adapted from here.

Stay warm!
