Gourmet Snow Cream Recipe
A classic old-fashioned snow cream is made up of two ingredients: snow and condensed milk. Vanilla extract is occasionally added to the mix.
The idea is to mix the snow in a bowl while adding a bit of condensed milk a little at a time until obtaining the desired sweetness. If you don't have condensed milk on hand a mixture of cream and sugar may be used instead. Even evaporated milk can be used in a pinch.
