This post was actually written last winter and for some odd reason we never published it. We found Snowday Ice Cream on Pinterest but have since lost the original pin. Here’s our take on it though Yes, the lack of snow continues this year!
Where we live (the frozen tundra) we normally have a surplus of snow for this tasty treat. Notice I said “normally?” Yeah well this year, not so much…in fact this year was the first year I can remember in my 30-something years where we had a brown Christmas. Well we finally got a little bit of snow (just barely enough to cover the ground) and I can finally share this tasty treat with you.
Here is what you will need:
8 cups of CLEAN snow- steer clear of the yellow snow, for obvious reasons
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
1-2 tsp vanilla extract (or almond is great too!)
sprinkles (because who doesn’t like sprinkles)
Grab your largest bowl and fill it with the fresh snow that has just fallen.
Estimate 8 cups (give or take a little) and pour the sweetened condensed milk and flavoring into the snow and mix well. When you are done add some sprinkles, whipped cream, a cherry on top, or whatever else you like on ice cream and ENJOY!
*the only bummer thing is that this “ice cream” doesn’t keep well….so don’t bother trying to freeze the left overs because you won’t enjoy it the second day.
