snow day

13 February 2010   //     4 comments   //   eat + drink, nature

We got a sweet little snow last night — about 3 inches worth, light and packable — that coated our world with a crisp, bright frosting. And now it’s Saturday — the perfect time to make Snow Cream with the kids!

Here’s our recipe:

  • 1 1/2 cups Milk
  • 2 tbs Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla

Whisk together in a measuring cup. Pour a little bit over a bowl of snow (we use cereal bowls) and stir until it resembles the thickness of ice cream (not too soupy).

Makes 4-6 bowls, depending on how much snow you use. Yum. And fun. It’s Fum!

What are you doing with your Saturday?

    Snow cream. How have I never eaten snow cream? Brilliant idea. Can’t wait to try it..

    My kids got out there so fast this morning but within minutes all I could have made was mud cream. We must have a lot of sunshine on our street! Remembering this for a little more snow one day!

    The key, Brittany, is to leave a bowl out as soon as it starts snowing. Then you get pristine snow right in the bowl! Since I grew up in NC, I know all the tricks for dealing with “southern snow.”

    Hope y’all had a blast today!
