When Life Gives You Snow, You Just Need to Make Snow Ice Cream!


It stands to reason that here on the farm we use what we have, and make do with it.  Happily that means there are all sorts of delicious meat, veggies, and fruits stashed out in my freezer, but with the recent snows and the fact Tink and Bear missed the whole first week plus one day of school in this new yer, we have been trying to be a bit creative to keep the crazies away.

Since Tall Guy's actual 50 birthday was Monday, and we had made him his favorite dessert, peach cobbler, the girls wanted to make him some ice cream to go with it!  (From this link, looks like TG's birthday is inclined to also be a snow day with peach cobbler served!  It's a super easy recipe to try!)

Snow Ice Cream


Clicking on the link above will get you to my super simple peach cobbler recipe, but this time we are going to focus on an easy peasy way to make snow ice cream.  You need just 1 can of Borden's Sweetened Condensed Milk, a bit of vanilla, and about 8 cups of 99% CLEAN snow!

Heather Hill, you are mentioned in the following video because I know how precise you are about measuring ingredients.  I still love you anyway!  ;-)



So now there are TWO big ice cream buckets filled with "Snow Cream," and the girls are in heaven because they were able to make it.  Tall Guy is NOT in heaven after turning 50, and he is quite grateful for that. Turning 50 is not the end of the world; you just start to see the world from a different view point!

    1. Michelle, I sure hope you found some wood to knock on as you typed the words" no real snow....." At least you don't have to make up any snow days; we have 5 to make up as of this week. Wooooo (NOT)

    1. Leslie, We are so happy to see the sun now and enjoy "warmer temperatures," which means it was in the low 30's today! Snow is starting to get a bit messy though, so no more snow ice cream until we get a new batch of the main ingredient!
