Here’s a a fun snack idea for those outside days in the snow!  You will be the neighborhood hero!

Here’s a simple snow cream recipe you an try!

Snow Cream

1 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. teaspoon vanilla
large bowl of snow (about 3 quarts)

Blend milk, sugar and vanilla. Stir in enough snow to make snow cream to
an ice cream consistency.

Variations – There are many variations for snow cream. For example,
substitute canned cream for milk for a heavier flavor. Add Nestles Quik
for a chocolate snow cream, or use instant cocoa mix.

Note: ALWAYS – ALWAYS make sure the snow is clean. It takes at least one
to two hours for snow to clean the pollutants from the air, so only use
only snow that has fallen after that first cleansing snow. It also goes without
saying (but I will anyway), to make sure you do not collect the snow where
animals and birds eat (or do other things). That would not be very yummy!

Enjoy your snow-filled day!
