The easiest vanilla ice cream… made of snow

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Easy ways to make kids happy|Recipes and Food

Did you know you can make ice cream out of snow? Just make sure you use the clean white stuff for this recipe, okay? :)

Did you know you can make ice cream out of snow?

Now that we finally have SNOW here in Ottawa we can make a batch of this stuff. It’s not as creamy as the kind you’d find at the grocery store, but it’s a neat treat and only takes a few minutes to make.

You will need:

  • 4 cups clean snow
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (or you can also use maple syrup instead!)

Put the snow in a large mixing bowl. Combine the milk, sugar, and vanilla extract in a measuring cup or separate bowl. Pour the mixture over the snow and stir well to combine. Wait a couple minutes before serving. That’s it!

This is a fun little thing to do over the winter break. Also worth trying, is this maple “taffy” recipe in case you REALLY want to impress your kids. :)

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (18) and Sarah (16). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
