Well, when life gives you snow, I think it’s a must that you at least make one batch of snow ice cream. ♡ Especially if you’re a kid. And especially if you’re an adult. (Hey, there’s gotta be some reward for shoveling that driveway!)
If you’re never made snow ice cream before, it literally couldn’t be easier. All you need are 4 simple ingredients (that I’m sure are already in your kitchen), about 5 minutes, and maybe a few sprinkles to throw on top for extra fun.
I decided to make a batch for a spontaneous snow day Sunday breakfast today. (Yes, ice cream for breakfast.) And since I had never shared this favorite on the blog, I just typed out my fastest blog post ever to share it with you before heading to church so that everyone else having a snow day today could have a sweet treat too. And you’ll be happy to know that — since we’re having a healthy eating month on the blog — this healthier version calls for less sugar and milk (instead of cream), and is still full of great flavor!
In a large bowl, whisk milk, sugar, vanilla and salt together until combined. Go scoop up some fresh (clean!) snow, and immediately stir it into the milk mixture until you reach your desired consistency. (The ice cream should be fluffy, not runny. But it melts quickly, so dive in quickly.)
Top with sprinkles or other ice cream toppings if desired, and enjoy!
