Sweet Tea Snow Cream

2 Comments

We don’t often get snow in Alabama, so it is an epic event when we eventually get some.  Everyone is outside, making snowmen and forts, sledding on sheet pans and cardboard, having snowball fights, and of course making snow cream.  But rather than make the tradition snow cream, I made snow cream with a southern twist: sweet tea!  I used Peaches and Cream Tea from the amazing Piper & Leaf and it was delicious.  You can purchase it at the link above and I highly recommend that you do!Untitled-2The only snag I ran into was placing a bowl outside to catch clean snow and then forgetting about it.  At first I thought someone had stolen my bowl, but then I realized I just had to dig it out from the snow.  At least I had plenty to work with!

My bowl 5 minutes after putting it out vs my bowl 2 hours after putting it out.

To make the Sweet Tea Snow Cream I just added cold tea, heavy cream, and raw sugar to fresh snow.  It was so tasted I made a second batch as soon as I ate the first one.

I am a freelance photographer and writer, working for various magazines, cookbooks and blogs. I love what I do, but I have a lot of restrictions depending on which brand and publication I'm working for. This blog gives me the opportunity to have fun. I'm also a pretty terrible cook, so this blog is forcing me to learn some kitchen skills, which is both thrilling and infuriating. I hope you enjoy reading the blog, half as much as I enjoy making it.

  1. How cool is that. Snow cream. When I was a child I used to love to eat snow. Been a long time and this sounds really good!!

  2. Thanks! I still love eating snow. Not sure how healthy it, but we only get it once a year so I think it is okay. I also love making maple candy in the snow.
