Snow Ice Cream

I know, there is no fresh snow to be found in Overland Park right now.  But, this is for the next time it snows and so that you can be prepared!

My mom made snow ice cream when I was a kid.  I loved it!  I haven't a clue as to what she put in it, though.  I tried a recipe last year, but it was too watery and sweet.  I found an extremely simple recipe and added a little more snow because it was also rather sweet.  But, we were quite satisfied with it overall and ate a bit too much of it since it doesn't store well.  Another bonus besides simplicity is that this doesn't call for raw eggs like a lot of the recipes out there.

Snow Ice Cream

9-10 cups of clean snow
14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp. vanilla

Combine in a bowl and serve immediately.  This is a yummy vanilla ice cream with a delightful texture.
