How to Make Snow Ice Cream

What is Snow Ice Cream, You Ask?

Snow Ice Cream is something fun to make out of freshly fallen snow. Kids will love to try this recipe sometime, and with the number of snow days much of the country has been having these days, there is no better time to try it out. No need to get bored when its snowing outside and you think there is nothing to do. Or just top of a fun time after sledding outside. Try out this fun idea next time you want a homemade treat with a little help from Mother Nature!

Snow Ice Cream - Here are the Ingredients:

Two Cups of Freshly Fallen, Clean Snow

One quarter cup of cold milk

One Table spoons of sugar

Vanilla Flavoring, or Strawberry Syrup, Mini Chocolate Chips or chocolate shavings, and a cherry for on top if you like.


First, have everything ready to go and get your fresh clean snow last, so that it retains as much of its consistency as it can. Don't pack the snow, like you would a snowball, and don't mash it down with a spoon or anything.

Second, Once you have everything ready to go, gather up two cups of clean fresh snow and put into a large cup or mug.

Third, Have the milk and sugar stirred together, or just put in with the snow and mix it up. Then add your choice of flavoring.

If you like vanilla add one half teaspoon of vanilla flavoring. For chocolate, add about 3 Tablespoons of chocolate syrup (or to taste). Throw in a few mini chocolate chips or chocolate shavings for some added flavor and texture.

Last, mix all together with a spoon, but do NOT over mix it as it can get too thin or watery. You are looking for the texture of a soft ice cream or thick shake.

Have fun and enjoy!

      Wow - sounds like a lot of fun! My kids would love it. Normally, we have a lot of snow in January, but its been unseasonably warm this year. Rated up and awesome!

      Wow, fun hub. Since today was a "snow day" for my daughter's half-day Kindergarten class, we will go out and gather some snow and make it.

      Suzette, its a fair question! Thanks for stopping by and sharing your comment :) I grew up in Southern California, and so it was never something I ever even heard about until I was an adult.

      My mom used to make it too...I used to ask, if I can't eat it from the ground why can I eat the ice cream? I always ate it though.
