Well, we got dumped on again! Another snow storm hit the Brainerd area this weekend. Sledding for the Boy Scouts was cancelled and the roads were to cruddy to go anywhere. When life gives you snow what do you do? You make snow cream!!
Rumored to originate in ancient Greece but more of a tradition in the northern US and Canada, snow cream has less calories then regular ice cream. Not only are the ingredients simple and easy to assemble, making snow cream is a fun way to make memories on a snowy afternoon.
Zach and I decided we would make this old time treat today. We ate our fill and still had enough to share at my husband’s birthday celebration this evening. My mom even tried it although my dad was hesitant. I think he was afraid that we picked the spot where the dog peed! When you make snow cream it IS important to use fresh clean snow. Our dog had been in the kennel all day and I went way to the middle of the yard where nothing had been since last week’s snowfall.
