Sugar-Free, Paleo-Friendly Snow Cream (THM FP)

It snowed!!! Here in Coastal South Carolina, this is a super rare occasion! It was also my toddler’s first time getting to play in the snow, and she totally loved it. So, to commemorate the big event, of course we had to have snow cream! But what’s a Trim Healthy Mama to do when it’s snow cream season? Make some Fuel Pull, Sugar-Free Snow Cream, of course!

Friends, can I just pause a moment and point out the wonder of this? First, we had snow, and then we had a fabulous fuel pull dessert from it?! God is good!

Fuel Pull Fun

Fuel Pull, in the THM world, means that the food is both low carb and low fat (and always sugar free to stick with THM principles). This allows you to pair it with a snack or dessert after a meal of any fuel type and still lose weight! Hooray!

Do you struggle with fuel pull foods? I know that I do! Somehow heavy S desserts tend to call my name. Last spring, I decided to change things up with my diet for a few weeks, and along with cutting back on dairy, I also became BFF’s with fuel pulls. I had one fuel pull snack or dessert a day and started the THM Workins exercise program, and my body said, “Thank you,” by dropping one pants size! Woohoo for fuel pulls (and the Workins)!

All of the THM snow cream recipes that I found online were an S fuel, so I came up with this lighter version. Mainly, it was because I’m almost out of heavy whipping cream, but necessity is thankfully the mother of invention!

My Sugar-Free Snow Cream Disclosure

Okay, I need to share a little snow cream disclosure with you… This was my first time ever making snow cream. Ever!

So, there’s the potential that this won’t quite taste like the snow cream that you remember as a kid. Feel free to adapt the recipe to recapture childhood memories, and please share those tweaks with us in the comments!

This sugar-free snow cream was actually my second batch of snow cream ever. The first I made with regular sugar for my husband from a Pinterest recipe so that I could see the process (nothing to it) and consistency. My sugar-free snow cream looked and felt exactly the same as his, but it’s so much kinder to my blood sugar and belly!

I made my snow cream in a KitchenAid mixer. It was quick and easy, but the vigorous stirring action from the KitchenAid might be a bit much for the snow cream. Mine started to melt a bit before I ate it. It was still delicious, but you can try mixing it by hand or not being as crazy as I was with the stand mixer.

This is a pretty basic recipe, so feel free to add in different extracts or toppings as your palate pleases. Just remember that the base is a fuel pull, but if you add in nuts and skinny chocolate (that would be cool and create a magic-shell effect), then you’ll probably end up in S territory.
