Paleo Snow Cream Flavors (Coffee, Cocoa, and Strawberry Snow Cream)

What do you do when life gives you lemons? We all know the answer to this one - Make lemonade. What do you do when life gives you record amounts of snow? Make snow cream. Here's my classic recipe:  Paleo Snow Cream
What do you do when it's a week and a half later and school is still out, snow is still here and water lines are breaking all over the area? You keep working and stay positive, that's what, and you make many different versions of Paleo Snow Cream.

Paleo Coffee Snow Cream
I stirred the following ingredients in a huge bowl:

1/4 cup strong coffee, cooled 
1/3 cup coconut milk from a can, CHILLED ( or almond milk if you prefer)
1 tsp real vanilla
1/4 cup real maple syrup  ( you can also use 1/4 cup local honey instead if you prefer)

I added 4-5 cups of fresh snow and stirred it all up. (You will want to add 4 cups of snow and stir it up and taste it just to see if you need more. Different moisture levels in the snow make a big difference.

To make Paleo Cocoa Snow Cream, just add cocoa to the original snow cream recipe, starting with 1 TBSP and adding until it's as chocolaty as you like it. (Kids love this!)
You could add cocoa to the coffee version, too.

Here's a photo from Abigail Edwards. She adds strawberries to Paleo Snow Cream. Try smashed blackberries, little wild blueberries and whatever else you might think of.  Leave a comment or send me a photo on the Feeding Ger Sasser Facebook page or tag me on Instagram @feedinggersasser.

Make the most of whatever the weather throws at you.
