On my very first free gift message, I asked viewers to comment with their preferred snowy day tasks. Amber uploaded these guidelines for Snow Ice Cream:

one of my preferred wintertime tasks is making snow ice cream! we did this after the initial BIG snow each year when i was a youngster– it needed to be a BIG snow because you do not wish to obtain items of yard or leaves in your gelato. (:


* fresh WHITE snow (heehee)

* a bit of vanilla extract

* a gob of fifty percent & fifty percent (milk will do)

* a smidgen of granulated sugar

* sprays (optional)

guidelines: blend the snow with the vanilla, fifty percent & fifty percent and sugar. put it in a bowl, leading with tinted sprays (it’s just so charming!) as well as consume it FAST! (:”

She most definitely piqued my passion, and I just had to attempt it out with my very own kids after our recent snow storm.

I started by scooping some of the leading layer of snow, and afterwards leaving the bowls out to accumulate even more of the snow as it dropped. You can see it was a substantial tornado. My bowls runneth over! I brought them in as well as scooped off the tops right into an additional dish. When you start adding components, you shed a great deal of elevation, so you could require even more snow to add back in!

I had ingredients waiting ready so that we might solve to function. Complying with Amber’s directions, we scooped, mixed, as well as tasted.

My young boys were surprised as the snow seemed to magically become gelato!

They said it tasted just like vanilla ice cream! They possibly would have said extra, however their mouths were full.

This was such an enjoyable task! It offered every one of the developmental chances I stated earlier in this blog post concerning cooking with kids, plus it’s a distinct scientific research task in its use snow as an ingredient. (It additionally reminded me a little bit of the cut ice you get in Hawaii- you could attempt that also! Shave ice/snow, flavored syrup, drizzled sweetened condensed milk.)

Many thanks so much, Amber! This was a great task!
