10 Snow Cream Recipes To Make The Most Of What Winter Dishes Out

You likely already have the main ingredient in abundance.

The hottest new dessert trend involves a cool ingredient most Canadians just happen to have in their own backyards.

Snow cream, which is essentially snow made from ice cream (a variation of which was super popular in 2013), is making a comeback. Searches for "snow cream" have snowballed 44 per cent this year, according to Pinterest's top trends blog.

The ingredients typically include freshly fallen snow (which we kind of have in abundance here in Canada right now), condensed milk, and some type of flavour. The best part? You can make it together as a fun family activity that kids will love.

Here's a great recipe to try from Delish.

If you think making ice cream from snow sounds kind of gross, fair enough, but we're willing to bet you'll be a convert soon.

"Using snow as a main ingredient in a dish sounded so bizarre to me, but I kept seeing all these recipes for snow ice cream (also known as snow cream) all over the net, and in every one, people raved about how good it tasted," Canadian blogger Jackie Currie wrote in a recent post.

"It'sbetter than any store-bought ice cream I've ever tasted. It's rich and sweet and packed with flavour. And it was so easy and fun to make!"

Yep... that sounds pretty great.
