Seeing as there may be snow in the next few days I thought now would be a good time to share one of my favourite recipes of all time – Snow flavoured ice cream!
First you need to send a small child outside in to the snow with a big bowl to gather up some clean fresh snow, making sure that they know that the top of the wheelie bin is not the best place to gather clean snow from!
When you’ve got your bowl of snow, you need to put in in the freezer for a while so it doesn’t melt while you sort out the rest of the ingredients, otherwise it’ll be snow flavoured milkshake and not snow flavoured ice cream
Next, mix 1 cup of milk, 1/2 a cup of sugar and 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence together in another large bowl. Add the snow bit by but to the milk mixture and just keep stirring until it looks like ice cream. It’s ready when it gets to this point and you need to eat it straight away because it does melt quite quickly!
Add more snow if it’s a bit watery and pop the bowl back into the freezer to harden it up a bit.
Pity that it doesn’t snow more often or this would definitely be a regular in our house!
