THM Snow Ice Cream

Snow Ice Cream (S)

5 to 6 cups clean snow
4oz heavy cream*
4 oz unsweetened almond milk (I use the 30 cal. one)
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbs Truvia

for orange creamsicle flavor add 1/8 tsp orange extract

Measure out 5 to 6 cups of clean snow into one bowl.  No yellow or brown icky snow!!
In another bowl mix cream, almond milk (you could skip the cream and use 1 cup of almond milk instead), vanilla and truvia (or sweetener of your choice) until the truvia has pretty much dissolved.   Add milk mixture to snow and mix until creamy.

You could use the mix of heavy cream & almond milk, coconut milk or  just almond milk!

I got about 4 servings from this.

  1. What a neat idea! We just got 17.1 inches of snow so I'll have to try this!

    1. This snow is so pretty! We had a good 7 or 8 inches then another 11 inches from this storm. It's beautiful outside but dangerously cold! My kids are dying to play in it and say Mother Nature is torturing them lol We made it to 0 today and the windchill right now is about -21 which is much better than the -48 windchill we had earlier! No school tomorrow due to icy dirt roads!

  2. You could add an egg or two for richness.

    1. Stay away from raw eggs in a non cooked food.

  6. We had the perfect snow ice cream snow last night here too ... much to the delight of the children. I like to whip up the cream, but one batch of my raw cream would not whip up thick and fluffy. This time though, I had a new trick to try. Glucomannan! While it does add a bit of taste/texture that some of my "men" do not care for. it does also add a creamy smoothness to the ice cream/ Not sure how it will "perform" after freezing though?

  7. In the Carolinas here and seeing pigs fly is more chancy than snow. I do have a Snow Cone Maker. Wonder if that would work?

    1. It might! I grew up in Georgia and now live Michigan. I used to really dislike the winters here but I dislike the heat even more lol
