Currently,here on the East Coast There is 2 feet of snow on the ground. I have been making snow ice cream for years,mut it would turn watery quckly.It also did not taste like real ice cream,more of a snow cone.There is more than enough snow to experiment with.There are infinite possibilities with this recipe. I will show how to make three and give you some ideas. If you skip putting it in the freezer you get a very good moctail!!
Step 1: The Basic Recipe
So snow ice cream is the following plus a flavoring:
½ a cup of heavy cream
½ a cup of sugar
a bowl of snow
When you have finished mixing things up,put it in the freezer for about a half an hour to thicken it up(it does not take long to freeze snow)
Step 2: How to Make Strawberry
We got,for no particular reason,some frozen strawberries at Target. The juice in there is great for ice cream-making.Throw the sugar,a half cup of strawberry juice,some heavy cream,and (optional) a little bit of vannilla extract. mix well,be sure to get rid of lumps,and put in the freezer for about a half an hour(to thicken it) Serves 1.It has a nice pink color.It tastes great!
