How to make snow ice cream or granita

Snow ice cream

This recipe, tried and tested back in 2010 when we had massive snow fall, will make four generous cups of ice cream. 

125ml of milk
60g of sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups of fluffy snow (preferably not compact if you do not want it slushy like in the pic - a cup is about 4oz)

Mix milk, vanilla and sugar in a bowl or jug, then slowly spoon in the snow, stirring carefully. Enjoy! My photo shows a slushy mixture as the snow I used was a bit compact, but it was tasty. 

In Italy we have a simpler version of snow ice cream, just get the snow in a cup with a metal spoon, add lemon juice and sprinkle with sugar to your taste. It's just like a fluffy, lovely granita from the sky....
