Snow Ice Cream Recipe

Snow Ice Cream Recipe – Here’s a recipe that I’m sure is centuries-old in many variations. Snow Ice Cream is a great way to enjoy the abundance of Michigan snow and a great recipe for kids to try on snow days!

Snow Ice Cream Recipe Ingredients

  • 5 cups of fresh snow
  • 1 cup of cream or milk
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 T. cocoa powder (optional)

How to Make Snow Ice Cream
Gather snow by removing top layer and scooping up some fresh snow. Pack the snow in a bowl. Add milk, sugar, vanilla, and cocoa powder if desired. Mix and serve immediately. Do not overmix… it will melt too quickly.

Note – you cannot store snow ice cream or freeze for later. It will turn solid. And, if you don’t eat it right away, it will melt into a liquid.

Snow Ice Cream Recipe Variations

I used Coconut milk so it would be dairy free and I enjoyed it. Other variations to add to the snow ice cream include…

  • using chocolate syrup
  • make it an adult version – add Kahlua
  • make a healthier version using half cane sugar and half coconut sugar
  • add lemon extract
  • add almond extract
  • add flavored coffee creamer
  • use half and half or heavy whipping cream instead of the cream or milk

Head outside, grab some snow, and make your own snow ice cream recipe!
