REPOST FROM JANUARY 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 Living in a climate where it snows around 6 months out of the year, we either need to eat it or shovel it. Eating snow is always the preferred way of using snow. This recipe for homemade soft-serve ice cream is easy and fun. It doesn't store well so plan on making enough to eat immediately. My family doesn't seem to mind that they have to eat any leftovers. Enjoy! One quick and easy dessert that is a fan favorite is making a soft-serve ice cream out of snow and simple ingredients found in the fridge and pantry. Recipe: (These measurements aren't exact because it really depends on the consistency of the snow.) 1 cup heavy cream 1/2 cup confectionary sugar 1 tsp vanilla 4 cups of fresh clean snow • Gather the fresh snow and store it in a mixing bowl. • In a separate cup mix together the cream sugar and vanilla until smooth. • Pour the cream mixture over the fresh snow and stir together until smooth.
