It’s a snow day for the kids today, and I wanted to show the kids how to make snow ice cream…but I didn’t have any sweetened condensed milk! Sure, I could use sugar and milk to make snow ice cream, but then I’d have to dissolve the sugar and then cool the mixture. All of this takes time – something I didn’t have a lot of.
Okay, so I lied. I had the time, but when I decide I want ice cream, I want it now.
Then, I remembered picking up Left Field Farms Milk & Coffee Creamer at Walmart over the weekend. It’s delicious and I love that it has real ingredients: It’s made with real sugar, real milk, real cream, and it’s non-gmo project verified (If you won’t eat GMOs, why should cows?)
After a little trial and error, I’ve come up with the perfect recipe. Be sure to use freshly fallen snow (I typically set out a bowl to catch the snow). You can mix all sorts of things in it – eat it as-is, or use this as a base for any concoction you can come up with. In fact, when I was in high school one of my first jobs was at Dairy Queen. I became known for really crazy recipes, like pineapple-strawberry sundaes with chocolate cone dip, pecans, and pop rocks. My latest obsession? Oreo + pineapple.
You don’t need any added sugar for this, as the Left Field Farms coffee creamer is already sweetened.
How to Make Snow Ice Cream
- 8 cups fresh snow*
- 1 cup Left Field Farms coffee creamer, any flavor
- Optional mix-ins, including sugar to taste
Mix all of the ingredients together – quickly! It melts fast. Each bit of snow should be soaked in the creamer, add more creamer or snow if necessary.
