A very sweet memory I have from childhood is making snow ice cream with my mom! I wanted to create this memory with my own little ones, so when the snow fell on Monday, I decided it was the perfect time to give it a try!
Milk or cream
Sugar, Maple Syrup, or Sweetener
1) Scoop some snow into a bowl.
2) Drizzle with maple syrup or other sweetener (to taste). Add about 1/2 cup of milk (add more or less depending on your desired consistency) and a 1/8 tsp. of vanilla. Stir and enjoy!!
*We made this allergy-friendly by using almond milk for my oldest daughter!
(Now, I do realize there is a debate about whether or not to eat snow, but I’m of the opinion that if you collect it while it is falling or shortly thereafter, it can’t be any more harmful than processed food or the other toxins we’re exposed to on a daily basis — you can check out this article for reassurance! However, if you do live in a highly-polluted area, you may not want to try this!!)
