The first thing I think of when we get a big snow, is snow ice cream. Well, maybe I grumble a little (okay, maybe a lot) about the cold white stuff, but eventually I come around and try to make the best of it…. (Sometimes that might mean not looking outside while pretending that there is no such thing as snow, and that the temperature always stays about 60*….)
Okay, so I was talking about snow ice cream. This is something we always had when I was a kid. When it snowed, anyway. I think it used to snow more, when I was a kid. Which, make me grateful for global warming, if it’s happening.
Yeah, so back to snow ice cream.
16 cups snow
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or any flavor actually – this morning we used coconut, and it was really good)
Place snow in a large bowl. Pour condensed milk over and add vanilla. Mix to combine. Serve immediately in chilled bowls.
You have to eat this stuff fast, because it melts fast!
