We went on an adventure today. JJ got all rugged up in his snow suit, settled in his sled, with his bowl in hand. We were on a quest to find the perfect, freshest, fluffiest clean snow so that we could make snow ice-cream!
First we had to test out the snow for overall perfectness.
Hmm... this stuff sure seems fluffy enough... but I am not sure if it is right....
So the quest continued... we searched near and we searched far....
Hey! Lets check out the snow over there. So we continued on.
And like no true adventurer, no quest is complete without a few bumps and bruises along the way... or in this case an overturned sled.
And like the noble adventurer he is JJ was quickly back on his sled.
Once the snow was collected it had to pass intense inspection.This snow is just right.
By now our stalwart adventurer was cold, weary and hungry. Time to make some much anticipated snow ice-cream.
This is the recipe we used to make snow ice-cream.
- 4-6 cups of fresh fluffy snow
- 1/2 cup of thick cream
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla
- Several drop of food dye (optional)
Mix the cream, sugar and vanilla in a bowl. Then gradually add cups of snow to the mix until it is the desired consistency. We chose to make it a little thicker than soft serve.
Surprisingly it tastes a lot like vanilla ice-cream. Initially I forgot to add the sugar and it tasted pretty nasty, just like snow and cream. JJ didn't seem to mind though.
