An Easy Snow Day DIY Treat: Snow Ice Cream

Snow DaySo…what does a mature 34 year old do with a snow day?  She’s all super productive, right?  She does laundry, cleans her room, works on her taxes…

Um, no.  Not this mature 34 year old anyway.

I blame Facebook, really.  Had I not scrolled through my newsfeed so obsessively, I might never have been introduced to the wonder that is Snow Ice Cream.  But, alas, there it was…plain as day.  Quite honestly, a lot of people were posting about it.  I’d never heard of it before, but it sounded pretty cool (No pun intended.  Aww, who am I kidding?).

At first I told all my friends with kids (and my brother and sister-in-law – my niece and nephew would LOVE it) about it.  Then, I decided I had to try it for myself.  I gotta say, it was definitely worth trying and it was a whole lot more fun than doing anything respectable.

You, too, can make Snow Ice Cream if you follow these easy steps.

1. Mix 3/4 cup milk, 1/4 cup sugar and 1 tsp. vanilla in a bowl (or other container of sorts).

2. Bring that mixture outside and gather 4 – 6 cups of snow.

3. Stir the snow in with the base mixture, adding more snow as necessary…to reach your desired consistency.

4. Add toppings.  I chose chocolate syrup, but, you know, whatever floats your boat.

5. Enjoy ASAP…or it gets kind of soupy…but doesn’t all ice cream?

Boom: Awesomeness!  And also, I actually did something else productive today.  I finished this blog post, so there.  But seriously, go make some of this scrumptiousness.
