Snowpocalypse 2016 Ice Cream

January 23, 2016

Stephanie and Caitlin from WHAG-25, are always looking for new ideas on the show, and while messaging Stephanie on the longevity of the storm she asked about Snow Ice Cream. I’ve had Snow Ice Cream but never made it but did some research into several recipes and this is the creation I came up with at Shepherd Dining Services. There’s lots of snow out there – so gather up a bowl and get cooking!

Ingredients:

1-gallon fresh snow – no yellow snow
1-cup sugar
1 tbsp. natural vanilla
1 can sweetened condensed milk (14oz) – more to taste

Directions:

Place the snow in a large clean metal bowl, gradually add in sugar, vanilla and slowly stir in the condensed milk to desired consistency. You may need more so have another ready just in case.

Scoop into bowls top with favorite additions or enjoy plain!
