Snow Ice Cream – Tutorial

We had a beautiful, fluffy snowfall Christmas Eve morning.  My friend Joanne suggested we make some Snow Ice Cream.  So, the girls and I collected a huge bowl of clean, fresh snow, and set to it! 

Snow Ice Cream

You will need:

1 gallon fresh, fluffy snow, give or take.

2 cups whole milk or 1 cup whole milk + 1 cup eggnog (or for vegans, 2 cups hazelnut or almond milk would be tasty, don’t you think?)

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

1 scant cup granulated sugar

In a very large bowl, combine the milk, sugar and vanilla.

Add in handfuls of snow until the mixture comes together.

Keep stirring, it takes a while!

Firecracker declares it, “Martha Stewart good!”

  1. I’d love to try this, but it somehow seems less appealing living in NYC. Any tips on enhancing the color of gray snow?

  2. Oh wow, this brings back memories! sadly it doesn’t ever snow where we live now, but i might just have to make my mum send me some snow!

  3. What a great idea! I have never heard of this before. But I’ve only lived in a snowy area for a couple years now. I’ll have to ask my friends if they’ve tried it. I’m not sure we’ve got any clean snow right now, but after the next snow fall I am totally doing this with my kids. They are going to love it!

  5. This brings back great memories – sadly it doesn’t snow much in Texas!

    Perhaps our next vacation up “north” will give us a chance to try this out.

  6. We have been doing this since I was a kid in Kentucky (I live in Illinois for about 24 years now)> Anyway, I was concerned about the quality of snow up here i the north (we rarely saw an airplane where I grew up at). So, I set boundaries, not the first snow, unless it was really deep, so as to clear the air of a lot of pollutants. We scrape of the top layer and ‘go for the gold……I mean snow.’ Jo
