Fancy some snow cream?

It’s amazing what you’ll find on a random Google search. Snow cream is a dessert that comes in two vareties:

  • A whipped cream variant with added flavourings
  • A dessert using real snow mixed with a dairy ingredient, sugar, and flavourings

Due to its appearance, whipped cream was known as snow cream until the 17th century and sometimes contained whipped egg whites. The latter mixed “clean snow” with a dairy-based ingredient and some sugar until it melted and congealed into an ice cream substitute.
