Snow cream is something that I used to make with my mom growing up and I have fond memories of gathering up a big bowl of snow and then bringing it in to make this yummy treat. And, the best part? It’s surprisingly simple!
For our snow cream recipe, we’ve paired it up with (what else?) a book about winter!
‘It’s Winter!’ Children’s Book
It’s Winter! (Celebrate the Seasons!) by Linda Glaser is a winter snow book that follows a young girl who completely appreciates the offerings of winter. Like most kids, she loves the snowflakes and sledding and even the hibernating animals.
The illustrations are so cool in this book, with a feeling of cut out images that have been pasted onto the page. (If you know me, you know how much I love unique illustrations.)
With all the snowy talk in the book, the snow cream is a perfect pairing for a theme recipe! Plan ahead the night before a snowstorm (or during the day while it’s snowing) and put a big bowl outside to catch some clean snow. Then, after an afternoon of playing in the snow, bring in your bowl of snow and make your snow cream!
