A recent video featuring a man creating ice cream from freshly scooped outdoor snow has captured the Internet's attention, amassing over 27 million views and sparking a heated debate online.
In the viral video, shared on social media, the man is seen mixing various ingredients with snow to prepare the unique dessert. His approach to making ice cream has garnered mixed reactions from viewers, with some praising the innovative recipe and others expressing disgust at the thought of consuming snow.
Instagram user and writer Jimmy Proffitt is the man behind the video. He also provided a detailed caption with his recipe for making snow cream.
In his post, Proffitt described the process:
"It's been snowing here all day. We started with about an inch, and now we're up to six inches, with more coming down. Everyone has their version of the recipe, but here's how I do it. You need a bowl of clean, fresh snow, sugar, evaporated milk, and vanilla. The quantities vary depending on how much snow you have and its texture. The best snow is nice and fluffy; it's not as good when it's icy. Keep your evaporated milk chilled, and it's best to make this outdoors so everything stays cold."
The video has led to an engaging discussion among netizens, reflecting the diverse opinions on unconventional cooking methods and the use of natural ingredients like snow.
Many are impressed by Jimmy's ability to create a dessert out of snow, while others are disgusted.
One person wrote a comment that garnered no less than 22,000 likes, stating, "I'd like to see that under a microscope," while another commented, "Snow is SO dirty."
Would you consider making a dessert out of snow like Jimmy Proffitt, or do you prefer sticking to the kinds of desserts found in the supermarket freezer section?
