All mixed and ready to eat in a matter of minutes. (This is only half a batch here.)

 

We used almond milk for our snow cream recipe, which I suspect gave it more of an icier texture rather than the creamier texture we’re used to. (It reminded me more of the ice cream in Europe than what we have here in America.) Of course, that didn’t seem to bother the kids at all! They loved making ice cream from snow.
