8cupsclean snowapproximate, can substitute shaved ice
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk milk, sugar and vanilla until sugar dissolves.
Collect clean snow. Pour mixture over the snow and whisk until well combined.
Cream – or milk, whatever you have on hand. I prefer to use Whole Milk, Half and Half or Heavy Cream if possible, but any milk including 1% or skim will do! You can make this recipe with rice milk to make it naturally dairy-free!
Sugar - Substitute with sweetened condensed milk, just eliminate both the sugar and milk, blend to taste.
Snow - this recipe was designed for snow, but you can use fresh shaved ice if you prefer.
Use Chocolate Milk
Use Strawberry Milk
Your result will largely depend on what kind of snow you have. If needed, freeze your snow for a few minutes first. If you have a wet snow, you'll use less milk / cream. A dry snow may use more.
Start by adding a small amount of milk. After you incorporate the snow you can blend in more milk as needed. If the consistency is too runny, add more snow or freeze.
Be sure to blend sugar into milk mixture first to help the sugar dissolve so it doesn't result in a gritty dessert.
Make your mixture first before bringing in snow as it will quickly melt. You can always pop it in the freezer, if needed.
To make this dairy free, use rice milk!
Top with sprinkles, chocolate chips, chocolate sauce or nuts if you wish.
