Have you ever made snow ice cream? It is super easy and it’s such a fun activity with the kids! You can make all different flavors and there is even a non-dairy option! Try making some today.
The kids wanted to try making all different flavors of snow ice cream! We decided to experiment with a bunch of different flavors. We don’t drink a lot of dairy so I have a non-dairy option for those of you that don’t do dairy. It worked great!
Snow Ice Cream
Making snow ice cream is something that every kid should try at least once! It’s a right of passage in the areas where snow falls. You can either find a good source for clean snow or you can put out a bowl before a snowstorm and collect fresh snow in the bowl. It only takes five minutes to whip up a batch of snow ice cream so you don’t need much time or many ingredients!
How To Make Snow Ice Cream
To make snow ice cream you’ll need four cups of fresh, clean snow. Take it from an area where no one walks (we took it from our back deck because no one goes on it in the winter).
Mix together milk (we used rice milk for non-dairy snow ice cream), sugar and the extract of your choosing. We have tried all different flavors! We used vanilla extract, almond extract, banana extract, and root beer extract. They were all yummy!!
There are so many different flavors of extracts available that you could make all kinds of flavors.
