Lemon Snow Cream

This winter, we have enjoyed a lot of snow.

Believe it or not, we probably still have a lot more to come.

Here in Minnesota, March is traditionally the snowiest month!

So, should a March snowstorm blow your way, may we suggest making a Snow Cream treat?

It is really best made with fresh snow.  Then you know you aren't getting any "extra additives" in your snow cream. :)  We like to collect the snow during our play and then enjoy our treat after we warm up inside.

Snow Cream
serves 4

8 heaping cups of fresh snow
1 cup of skim milk
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup lemon juice (Meyer lemons are great if available)
1/2 tsp vanilla

Collect the snow in a large bowl.
Combine milk, sugar, lemon juice and vanilla in a small bowl and whisk to combine.
Drizzle snow with milk mixture and gently fold in with a large spoon or spatula.

 Scoop your snow cream into serving cups and enjoy immediately!

We give it eight thumbs up.  Yum!

Love this, except that your kids won't develop the aversion to "yellow snow" that I had hammered into me as a kid :) Made me smile! Hope y'all are doing well! Love to all!
