Remember those days of snow angels, snow men and snow ice cream? Mom or dad would get a bowl of fresh fallen snow and make that delicious seasonal treat we loved! As many of you are in areas getting snowfall I thought I'd share a few snow ice cream recipes and ideas. Let's go back to the "good old days" and make some memories (and a sweet treat too).
NOTE: Always make sure you've had snow falling a while before you collect snow for ice cream so you know it will be clean and free from contaminates.
You can experiment with other extracts like almond, mint and other flavors.
Or you can use orange, lime or lemon extracts for a "sherbet".
To make ice cream even creamier add 1/2 of a mashed banana or mashed mango or other fruit you enjoy for another way to flavor this delicious concoction.
It is recommended that pregnant women, elderly and small children avoid raw eggs so I've included a recipe that does not include eggs in it as well. I hope you enjoy these.
