So when winter weather rolled around, the idea of snow ice cream was completely out of the question. I had seen recipes, heard people talk about it but never actually experienced the stuff for myself.
But all that's changed now. Over the past 7 years we've had several winter storms, and we've even had a decent amount of snow during those storms. Nothing compared to the northeast, but still decent for our neck of the woods.
We had one big winter storm the weekend Spencer and I got married. Yes, while I was trying to prepare to say "I Do" we got one of the biggest snows we had ever gotten. I was a nervous wreck, because over half my bridal party, along with my husband to be was 2 hours away with the storm hit. Needless to say I was starting to wonder if there would be a wedding. Since I had all that stuff on my mind, it's understandable that snow ice cream was not. As stressed as I was, I was thankful it wasn't an infamous ice storm.
He loves playing in the white stuff. And aside from making snow angels and pelting me with snowballs, he loves sticking his tongue out and catching snowflakes in his mouth. So he was ecstatic when I mentioned getting a bowl full of snow and making ice cream. Ice cream and snow, two of his favorite things ever, combined.
He loved it! After the first bite he turned to me, smiled and then said "deee-licious". He took a few more bites and then did what he does with his favorite ice cream, waited for it to melt a little so he could slurp up the goodness. I must admit, it is pretty deee-licious and definitely everything I expected!
3 Ingredient Snow Ice Cream
8-12 Cups snow
1 Can sweetened condensed milk
1 Tsp vanilla
Place half of the snow in a large bowl and set aside. Place the remaining snow in a smaller bowl, add vanilla and half of the condensed milk. Fold the mixture together using a spatula or wooden spoon. Once incorporated combine the mixture with the remaining snow along with the rest of the condensed milk and fold until completely incorporated.
