When it snows in the South, it’s a cause for great panic and great celebration. Schools close over a half inch of powder, grocery stores run out of bread and water and the local news has a field day treating single snow flakes as breaking news!
In Brentwood, Tennessee, this is our second snow fall in 5 days and also the 5th day without school for my 8, 4 and 2 year olds. Yeah.
So when I saw legit snow flakes covering the ground this morning, I thought back to my Montana childhood and decided to make snow cream for breakfast! Mainly because I have no idea how long the snow will last, but also because childhood is awesome and making an ice cream treat for breakfast makes me a hero to my kids.
The recipe is simple:
Combine the following ingredients in a bowl and whisk:
1 cup of milk
1/3 cup of sugar
A sprinkle of sea salt
Mia wisked the ingredients together on our kitchen floor. Yes, we serve floor-food in the Degala house!
Next, scoop 8-10 cups of fresh snow
Pour the milk mixture over the snow and mix until small balls form.
Top your snow cream with sprinkles and scoop into balls with an ice cream scoop.
Enjoy and eat immediately. It will turn into snow soup very quickly!
Here’s to a sane and fun-filled snow day to all of my southern friends!
