Snow Cream!

We enjoy this seasonal snow treat, once maybe twice a year if we’re lucky! Hey… we live in Virginia :- )

 

To make 3-ingredient Vanilla Snow Cream, you’ll need:

8-12 cups of fresh, white, new-fallen snow (a cup here in North America is 8 oz.)
300 ml  can of sweetened condensed milk (10 ounces)
1 tsp vanilla
Large bowl
measuring cup
wooden spoon
freezer-proof container for storing your leftovers
ingredients for snow ice cream – snow, condensed milk and vanilla

Fill a huge salad bowl with fresh snow. Gather about 10-12 cups of snow. Very light and fluffy and impossible to pack.  Your snow might be heavier, and you may not need as much as I did. Don’t worry too much about being precise. You can always add more snow to your ice cream if need be.

Sprinkle a tsp of vanilla onto the snow.

Then drizzle half the condensed milk over top.

With the wooden spoon, fold the condensed milk and vanilla into the snow, kind of chopping, stirring and mixing to combine everything, mixing condensed milk and snow together.

Then we transfer the whole mixture back into the big bowl of remaining snow, and add the rest of the condensed milk as desired.  The condensed milk does not melt the snow, and make it watery.  It’s quite the opposite, actually.  The snow sort of freezes the condensed milk, making it thick and icy.

Lose the easy way! Know your proteins :-)

Choose wisely when picking proteins…less calories, more protein.

Watch out for Sneaky Calories! Just a glance at the label will fool almost anyone. At closer inspection those “feel good” foods like peanut butter, and cheese are loaded down with unwanted calories just waiting to set up camp on your hips. You may be trying to get your vital proteins from foods that are too high in calories. Here’s a simple solution. For female waist watchers a clean serving of protein (approx.18g) should be 100 calories or less. For males a clean serving of protein (approx.30g) should be 200 calories or less. That same serving of protein from peanut butter is packing 475 calories for girls and 855 calories for my guys. Good-bye buff body or hello sexy…your choice. Look for lots of new Info from this spot, make sure to RSS and get the inside scoop for living the life!
