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!

 

Cuisinart ICE-30BC 2-Quart Automatic Frozen Yogurt, Sorbet, and Ice Cream Maker

August 6, 2010

This machine has been really neat to use. It’s has a very small counter foot print, everything stores within itself, and it’s very easy to use and clean. The quality of ice cream, yogurt, sorbet or mixed drink is dependent upon what you place into the freeze bowl before you switch it on. I’ve made ice cream, ice milk, frozen yogurt, frozen drinks and everything mixed up quite well and were very flavorful. The more fat in the mix the better the consistency and flavor. The ice milk did freeze up nice but after going into the deep freeze it hardened up too much. My recommendation is to stick with the full flavor varieties of ice cream and yogurt.

However, sugar free drinks did not freeze well at all in the machine. They tended to cause the machine to run hard and stop when the ice built up on the sides. That nice slushy granular ice texture never formed and I had to stop the machine and pour warm water into the bowl to remove the ice. You need the sugar to combine with the ice to get he granulated texture so I suggest to sticking to the real thing and use sugar.

Cleanup is fast and simple and took just 2 to 3 minutes and every component was cleaned and the freeze bowl was back in the freezer ready for the next mixed drink or luscious creamy dessert. You need to be careful with the freeze bowl and make sure that you refreeze the bowl upside down so any water can run out of it while it’s drying and freezing.

You won’t be disappointed when you purchase this machine, and you will have loads of fun creating a plethora of frozen delights.
