Snow Ice Cream

Alexa normally goes to preschool on Thursdays but today was a SNOW DAY!  I thought we should do something different and fun but didn't know what.  Then we heard someone mention Snow Ice Cream on TV and decided to give it a try.  We put a bowl in the backyard to catch the snow and make sure we gathered only the clean stuff (nobody likes yellow snow after all).  A few hours later, our bowl was full and we went to work.

To make Snow Ice Cream (or how we did it anyway):

1/2 cup white sugar
1/3 cup heavy cream
2/3 cup milk (I used skim)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
8 cups of snow

Mix together the sugar, cream, milk and vanilla until the sugar is dissolved.  Stir in the snow until you get the consistency you want.  I used a mixer and made it pretty creamy.  Add whatever ice cream toppings you want.
