Did your kids ever watch Little Bear? Do you remember when Granny made her simple Snow Cream recipe? Well, we do and we made some of our own!
The other day, I was watching the “Whether, Weather (Snowball)“ episode of Little Bear with the kids. Little Bear and his parents got stuck in a snow storm at Emily’s Grandmother’s house. In true Little Bear fashion, they took a potentially negative situation and turned it into a positive. So while they were all snowbound, Granny decided to make them some Snow Cream. My kids were glued to the tv as they watched Emily, Little Bear, and his family gather around Granny and chant,
As soon as the kids saw Little Bear chowing down on some Snow Cream, they demanded to know if it could really be done. To be completely honest, I had no idea that you could make ice cream out of snow. So, we decided to give it a whirl. After all, you only need a few ingredients – snow, honey and milk – and we had all of that on hand.
We had a great time making Snow Cream together and we were all really surprised at just how tasty Granny’s version really was. Just for kicks, we also made some Chocolate Snow Cream because my husband has a hideous sweet tooth! So, if you happen t have some nice, fluffy ‘ve got clean snow on the ground, surprise your kids by turning it into ice cream.
So, if you happen to have some nice, fluffy, clean snow on the ground, surprise your kids by turning it into ice cream for them. Thanks to Little Bear, we started a fun new tradition in our home!
