|Snow granitas chilled and ready to serve....mmmmmm. I want one now!|
What you'll need:
6 quart pan
1 1/2 coffee mugs full of coffee (doesn't matter if it's hot)
1/2 cup sugar (add more to taste)
1/4 cup powdered milk (I didn't have milk. You might substitute 1/2 cup of milk instead)
I got out my 6 quart pan and filled it 3/4 full with snow. I had the best luck when I mixed the sugar and powdered milk with the coffee before pouring it on the snow. You can pour them directly into the snow, but the sugar crystals may not dissolve and the powdered milk may be lumpy. I tried pouring both hot coffee and room temp coffee, and it didn't make too much of a difference. I actually liked that the snow was melted a little more by the hot coffee.
After you mix the sugar and powdered milk into the coffee, just pour it over the snow and mix. Put it in a mug and drink it or eat with a spoon. Add more sugar, milk and even coffee to taste. I liked mine not too strong, so this may be a milder recipe. I left the pan out in the cold as the snow thawed, and the snow melted into iced coffee that kind of tasted like a bottled frappucino. Yummy and successful experiment!
