Easy 4 Ingredient Vanilla Snow Cream

Anybody else going a little stir crazy with this #everlastingwinter ❄️ I’ve never longed for warmer weather like I am right now! Today we decided to put the snow to use?? and enjoy one of my favorite little treats that also makes a fun STEM|STEAM activity for the classroom.

Have you ever made Snow Cream??? Literally what childhood dreams are made of. Did I mention those dreams are only made out of 4 ingredients that you can find in your kitchen on any given day. This is one of those recipes were your shocked (in a good way) with the final result. Same flavor profile as homemade ice cream, but with the texture of Vietnamese Snow Creme’, (ever tried one of these?? Let me know if your headed to Disneyland and I’ll point you in the right direction!)

Literally, something magic happens. It’s AWESOME. There are a few things I love about this recipe/activity. It really is an activity. It’s something the kids get excited about, the kids can help every step of the way, and the mess factor is small! We’re talking no ice, no ziplocks, no tossing around the freezing cold canister on the tramp. 5 minute, 4 ingredients, pure deliciousness.
