Who wants some snow ice cream?

Posted by Turkey Hill Team on January 28th, 2015


If you’re like us here in Lancaster County (or many folks in New England), you’ve probably got a lot of snow lying around and you don’t know what to do with it. One thing you can do with it — besides build a snowman, of course — is use it to make snow ice cream. That’s right, ice cream made from snow.

It’s surprisingly easy to do, and only requires four ingredients — snow, whipping cream, sugar, and vanilla extract (plus some cocoa if you’re making chocolate ice cream). Of course, if you make some snow ice cream, you’ll want to make sure you use CLEAN snow. To get started on your own snow ice cream, check out the recipe below. You can also watch the video below, which shows you how to make vanilla snow ice cream AND chocolate snow ice cream. Enjoy!

SNOW ICE CREAM

INGREDIENTS

5-6 cups of clean snow
1/3 cup of heavy whipping cream (half and half or whole milk can also be used)
1 cap full of vanilla extract
2-3 tablespoons of sugar
1 tablespoon of cocoa powder (for chocolate ice cream)

DIRECTIONS

Whisk together the whipping cream, vanilla extract, and sugar until the sugar is dissolved. To make chocolate ice cream, add cocoa powder to the cream mixture (you’ll still use vanilla extract in the chocolate ice cream). Pour cream mixture into the snow and stir until combined. Avoid overstirring, or your snow will melt!
