We had a fantastic and especially odd first day of Spring here in Maryland. We had a whammy of a snow storm that dropped about 8 inches of snow on us.
I love looking out of the house and seeing all the snow on the trees and our yard filled with that fluffy white stuff.
And of course the kids definitely love playing in it!
We decided to make a special snow treat, some snow ice cream.
Let the kids fill a bowl with fresh, clean snow. (If you have littles, you may want to supervise this step).
Next thing you need to do is mix together your sweetened condensed milk, sugar, and vanilla.
Add the milk mixture to the bowl of snow and stir until well combined.
Both of the boys wanted something different in their ice cream. Charlie wanted chocolate chips and Owen chose sprinkles.
I divided our mix in half and put it in a gallon sized bag with their desired mix-ins and let them have at it.
Using their hands, the boys mixed up their snow ice cream!
- 6-8 cups of snow (depending on snow density)
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk
- ⅓ cup sugar
- 1 Tbsp vanilla
- Sprinkles or chocolate chips (optional)
- Mix sweetened condensed milk, sugar, and vanilla together.
- Pour milk mixture over 4-6 cups of snow and stir to combine.
- Add in more snow until you reach desired consistency.
- You can also add ingredients to plastic freezer bag and mash bag until combined.
The fun part about snow ice cream, like any ice cream recipe, is that you can add just about any ingredient as a mix-in!
Here's Charlie's snow ice cream with chocolate chips in it.
No one will judge you if you feed your kids snow ice cream for breakfast! Enjoy that snow day!
