snow ice cream.

I don't know why I've never done this before. It was so easy! 
I did it with my students first. A total experiment. I kept telling them... this could be good or bad... we'll have to see. Luckily, it turned out really yummy! We even did some experimenting at school and tried it 3 different ways. It was really fun! One of those moments that makes me remember why I love teaching. 

I figured if I could do it with 19 kids, then I could handle it with these two. I sent them out with a couple bowls, spoons and instructions to scoop up lots of CLEAN snow! 

Mix together 1 cup milk, 1/2 c sugar and 1 tsp. vanilla. Add enough snow until it gets to ice cream consistency. (With my students, I planned this about 20 minutes before we actually did it. I managed to find sugar, but no vanilla. So we used chocolate milk instead!) The vanilla tastes a lot like homemade ice cream, we thought! So yummy!

Someone wouldn't eat any ice cream (who's child is this?!), but she had fun playing in the leftover snow...

this winter I just kinda dumped it all in a bowl a splish of that and a splash of that and hoped it turned out!

it's always a hit though!

Chocolate milk!?
