Snow Cream

First real snow storm of the season here in Maine, with all that great clean snow, there was only one thing to do beside make a snowman.

We stole the recipe from my good friend Shel over at her blog One Sweet World, and it was tasty.

What we did.

6 cups fresh, clean snow
1 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract

Into a large bowl combine cream, sugar, and vanilla.
Fold in snow. Coat snow with the mixture, but be careful no to over-mix or it will turn to slush.
Serve immediately.  

The amount that can been accumulating in a bowl I had put out as the storm was starting.
Adding in sugar

Adding in Milk, you can also use light cream.
Final Product was a hit!

Mia said this was a great idea!

Chia Vitality Review

I actually did know about Chia, when I got the book.
The book itself is a great intro to this awesome super food, gives simple layperson terms, on how and why you can and should incorporate it into you daily life and diet.
I love how the author turned this into a lifestyle...the meditations,and the recipes, made it feel like a great lifestyle change
that could be easily done vs. a diet that cannot be kept up.
I did try a few of the recipes and they were amazing,
I have also been putting chia into my smoothies in the morning, with awesome results
Would recommend this to anyone looking to bring a boost to their diet and life.
