Before you scoop the snow, prep the fruit and have the blender ready to go. Incorporate all of your favorite ingredients — we included a pound of strawberries, one mango, one banana and a 1/2 cup coconut milk.

Scoop up six cups of clean, fresh white snow. Avoid snow from piles you shoveled, and don’t grab any that's near the road, beneath gutters or in pet areas.

If you have extra, pour the smoothie into molds, and re-freeze to make ice pops. Plastic spoons are a great substitute for sticks. The shape of the spoon makes it easier to extract, so you can enjoy the ice pop before it melts.
