Snow Cream

Basic Recipe:

1c Milk
1/2c sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
large bowl of snow (about 3 qts)

Blend milk, sugar, and vanilla. Stir in enough snow to make snow cream to an ice cream consistency. Some variations: Substitute canned cream for milk for a heavier flavor. Or add Nestles Quick for a chocolate snow cream or use instant cocoa mix. Another variation is to add a raisins and cinnamon or add a beaten egg for a nog taste. Or puree any fruit like a banana and add to the mixture. We have tried the chocolate snow cream and that was really good too!!! Get creative:)

Note: Always make sure the snow is clean. It takes at least one to two hours for snow to clean the pollutants from the air, then use only snow that has fallen after that. Obviously also make sure that you do not collect the snow where animals or birds have been. Cleanliness first!!!!
