I would file this under making lemonade out of lemons. In the Midwest, our Winters now mean surviving the polar vortex, and excessive amounts of snow.
But getting a lot of snow is not necessarily a bad thing. It turns out you can make ice cream with snow! Diane (An Extraordinary Day) shares a recipe for snow ice cream. All you need are 8 or 9 cups of clean, fresh snow. Diane uses a whisk to make this recipe.
Garnish with sprinkles, or chocolate syrup or caramel…mmmmm. Click on the How to Make Snow Ice Cream link below to see Diane’s recipe.
By the way, I considered suggesting using a blender instead of a whisk (Yes I’m lazy 🙂 ). However, when I spoke to Diane she raised a couple of good points: The average blender is probably not big enough. Also, the heat created by a blender, night turn the snow to slush. So I think the whisk is the better way to go.
