Eating snow...beware of yellow

As children, we have all eaten snow. We know to avoid snow that isn't well, snow colored. I didn't realize until recently, that you could collect snow in a clean container, then make foods and drinks with it. Granted, they will all be cold treats, but it's a neat idea. Here are some different ways to consume this frozen wonder.

Snow Cream

1) Collect snow in a large clean bowl. You will need about 8 cups.
2) Add 1 14oz can of Sweetened Condense Milk, 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract and sugar (to taste) to the bowl of snow.
3) Mix to combine and serve immediately.

Snow Slushies

1) Collect snow in a large clean bowl. You need about a gallon.
2) Add 1 pack of Kool-aid and 1 cup of sugar to the snow. You can use juice instead if wanted
3) If you would like an alcoholic slushie, add 1-2 shots of clear rum or vodka per glassful to the mixture.
4) Stir ingredients together.
5) Spoon mixture into glasses with large straws or straws and spoons.

Snow Cones

1) Collect Snow in a large clean bowl. You will about 1 cup per person...more if you want larger portions.
2) Scoop snow into paper cones, short glasses or small bowls.
3) Drizzle snow cone syrup over the snow. If you don't have or can't find snow cone syrup in the Winter, you can make your own with either of the 1 recipes below.
