With snow finally falling here in New England, it is time to pull out a fun winter tradition and make snow cream! It is a fun activity with the kids if they have a snow day or a fun afternoon after they get home from school. So here is an easy snow cream recipe to try.
For 8ish servings, you need 1 gallon of (clean) snow (about 16 cups), 1 cup of sugar (more or less to taste), 1 tablespoon of vanilla and 2 cups of milk. Put it in a large bowl. Mix it together until creamy. You can add flavors like peppermint oil or cocoa powder. Or you can add ingredients like M&Ms, crushed candy canes, or chocolate chips. Have fun with it!
Have the kids get the snow and add the ingredients, which are safe to handle. Have them play around with ingredients to see what unique flavor they can come up with. For older children, have them name their new snow cream flavor, and/or sketch a logo or design for their snow cream. For brave souls, set up a snow cream stand in lieu of a lemonade stand and see what happens.
Most of all, enjoy eating it!
