Posted: Updated:

My kids have been going WILD for Strawberry snow ice cream this year. I think I made it once last year and apparently they remembered!

Here is the recipe

Large bowl of fresh snow (or shaved ice)

In a separate bowl mix:

1/3 cup of milk (cow, soy, almond, rice, evaporated or any kind of milk)
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon strawberry extract

Using an ice cream scoop, I scoop 1-2 scoops of fresh snow into a small bowl. Drizzle the milk mixture over the snow.

Voila!

Variations:

Vanilla snow ice cream - use vanilla instead of strawberry

Fruit Snow Flavored Icee

Fresh snow or shaved ice

1 packet unsweetened fruit flavored drink mix (like Kool Aid)
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup water

Mix drink mix, sugar and water in a sauce pan over medium heat. Stir until sugar is completely melted/dissolved. Remove from heat and cool.

Drizzle cooled syrup over shaved ice or snow.
