Looking for The Best Snow Ice Cream – Comparing Recipes

I really like to cook, I use my play kitchen and my pans to mix and stir and taste test all day. But usually I’m not allowed to use the stove or the oven, so when mom said she found something I could help cook, I was very excited. It snowed a whole bunch, almost as much as I am tall, so we made snow ice cream. All you need is some sweet stuff and some milk and some vanilla and some snow. Mom and Sort-of-Aunt Sarah said we would be science chefs and experiment to see which snow ice cream recipe tasted best.

First we mixed up some cake batter snow ice cream from a recipe mom found on her computer, I guess you can find more than kitties in the computer.  But since we mixed in some cake flavored vodka, I couldn’t have any.  Vodka is only for people who are old.  Mom said it tasted pretty good.

Then we tried making a kind of snow ice cream that had instant pudding in the mix.  Mom wouldn’t let me have that either because it had cream in it and if I have dairy it gives me a tummy ache.  Sort-of-Aunt Sarah said she liked that one extra because it had cream instead of condensed milk.  Mom agreed.

Next we tested Paula Deen’s recipe for snow ice cream, but after one little taste, Sort-of-Aunt Sarah and Mom washed it down the sink, so I didn’t get any again!  They said it was waaay too sweet.

I was very unhappy that I helped make so much ice cream and I didn’t get to taste any of it so I told them how mad I was.  Mom didn’t listen, she just said I must need a nap.  Well, I should not have left Sort-of-Aunt Sarah alone in the kitchen.  She tried making snow ice cream without my help and she used sprite instead of milk in the pudding recipe.  She didn’t even let mom taste it, she kept it all for herself and the sink.

Finally mom made a version of snow ice cream that I could eat.  She just added sugar and vanilla to the snow.  It didn’t really taste very good.  She tried mixing in some almond milk, but it was still just sort of crunchy from the sugar.   Maybe I don’t like ice cream.

Mom and Sort-of-Aunt Sarah had one last idea.  Since they liked the pudding version, they decided to try to put the cream and sugar in the mixer and make it all fluffy before they added snow.  One problem with the other snow ice cream was that it melted so fast it turned very soupy.   They decided they liked that version best, but mom said after so much snow ice cream she had a belly ache.

Dad and Almost-Uncle Corey came home and tried some of the snow ice cream from the freezer.  They said they liked the cake batter version best.  I didn’t really care anymore. After all that hard work cooking snow ice cream, I just wanted to go play in the snow.
