some of us

...really wanted to make this
so some of us collected ingredients
and some of us poured coconut milk into the bowl
then some of us mixed...
and mixed

some of us ate huge spoonfuls
and some of us used a care bear for a spoon
some of us spilled on our shirt
and some of us laughed...
a lot
some of us spilled on the table
but we all LOVED
snow ice cream!
.snow ice cream.

big batch
16 cups fresh snow {not hard packed}
2 3/4 cups coconut milk
1 dropper full of liquid stevia
3/4 cup demerara sugar
2 T pure vanilla

mix. mix. mix.
and enjoy! {grin}

    Oh, if only we had snow!!! That looks so yummy!!

  3. when did your children grow up?!! i cant get over how much they've changed so quickly!

  4. I had snow cream for the first time at the end of December during our major snowfall. It was so yummy!

  5. I cant believe how big Grayson is getting! they all are.
    Id love to make this, to bad its like 70 here ;-)
    where can I find liquid stevia?!

  6. OH how yummy! Last time we had a big snow, I made my kids frozen hot chocolate, it was sooo good and they keep asking for it, unfortunately we don't live where it snows a lot. :)

  7. We made this a few weeks back when we were up to our necks in snow! A big hit around here...btw, your children are adorable!

  8. yum, yum, yum!

    Impossible for me to even imagine..... But it looks like it was a lot of fun to make & very popular! Your ideas amaze me x

  10. I am curious where you got that tin measuring cup. I have the same one (I think) and it was passed down from my grandma. It is super beat up but I love using it because it reminds me of her. :)

  11. Yum. The best dessert I have ever had in my life was at a Thai restaurant. It was coconut ice cream (or sorbet... can't remember exactly), some carmelized banana and a little dark chocolate drizzle. So amazing, and I totally hated coconut at the time.

  12. That's just to cute. Looks like they really enjoyed it.

    What fun!! I'm sitting down here in Alabama pining for my days in the upper midwest with all that snow. (okay.. just pining only a little. Certainly don't want to get stuck in those snow drifts!)

    We have you a little shout-out tonight, BTW


  14. Love these! Great family idea! That last picture of Eliza or Nolia is simply beautiful. The curl by her eye and the ice cream dripping down her chin. I would positively be framing that one if I was you!

    That sounds really, really good! Carmelized bananas... mmmmmm!


Thank you for blessing me with your words!
