A Snow Day Tradition- Making Snow Ice Cream

Snow Ice Cream Recipe

1 1/2 cup whole milk (I use raw organic whole milk-yum)

1/2 cup sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

large amount of freshly fallen snow

Mix milk and sugar together until sugar is dissoved, then add vanilla. Stir snow into cream until it is ice cream texture. It happens fast! You’ll be amazed, this is truly delicious and fun. The kids will go crazy over this and you’ll be creating memories for them. Have fun!

You can use evaporated milk for a more rich taste, experiment! Raw milk is already rich so I didn’t need to try it.


Must use whole milk or evaporated milk, sugar, vanilla and large batch of freshly fallen snow


Stir milk, sugar and vanilla until sugar is dissolved- Let the sugar and milk get to know each other for a couple of minutes before you stir (helps sugar dissolves)


Needs more snow


It’s ready to eat! Prepare the bowls quickly! Have your toppings ready- maple syrup and nuts, chocolate. . . Oh my this is SO GOOD!!!!!


Just wanted you to see this price. I LOVE deals! Our daughter Rachael bought this bowl at a thrift store for $10. It’s heavy and nice! I wanted you to see the sticker before I washed it for the ice cream. Women need details like this don’t they?

    Looks good Sharon. I wonder if we will get enough snow tomorrow to make. They are calling for 1-3 inches for us tomorrow. We will see. Love you.

    • Hi Dawn! I think we'll get enough to make it tomorrow! I was happily surprised to see the snow we got last night! I love you!

    That looks so delicious. Living in the South, we rarely have an opportunity to make snow ice cream. Enjoy a taste for me next time.

    I went to Panera Bread yesterday and my sweet husband and I had a delicious and healthy lunch. I am trying to lose about 30 pounds and I was able to make really healthy choices. I also enjoyed a cup of the Starbucks coffee last night. I feel so special because of these great gifts.

    My blessing I send to you and your family.

    • Well, one day you'll have to visit me when it has snowed and I'll serve you homemade snow ice cream Charlotte! I'm so happy you were blessed by the gifts! God knew what name He was drawing! Hugs, sharon
