Snow Cream

Last week, after a fresh snowfall, I had the urge to teach my family about snowcream.  Troy had never had it, growing up in Chicagoland I would guess the snow was too poluted to use?

I sent him and Camdyn out to scoop me a bowl of snow.

While they did that, I mixed up the sweetness.  I used 2 cups of whole milk, 1 T. vanilla and 1 cup of sugar.  I ended up doubling this, because it seems Troy was able to scoop about 2 gallons of snow into my bowl instead of the 1 gallon I had origionally anticipated.

We mixed in the sink, because it was a bit - messy.

And, the result is a light, creamy, just sweet enough slushy snowcream!

Enjoyable in a cone or a bowl :-)
