Snow Day Snow Cream

Snow Day Snow Cream

Print Recipe
  1. 1 cup milk (any kind)
  2. 1/3 cup granulated sugar.
  3. 1 tsp. vanilla extract, store-bought or homemade.
  4. 1 pinch salt.
  5. 8 cups clean snow or shaved ice (more or less depending on the density of the snow)
  6. optional (but strongly suggested) toppings of your choice.


First, gather all of your non-snow ingredients:

  • granulated sugar
  • milk (you can use any kind of milk)
  • salt
  • vanilla extract

Whisk the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl until combined.  Then pop the bowl in the freezer while you run outside to get your snow. For this batch, you need about 8 cups (more or less) of fresh, clean snow.  But since ours was super light and airy, I brought in a little extra.  Immediately stir the snow into the milk mixture, and keep adding until an ice-cream-ish consistency is achieved.  It should be fluffy and scoop-able, but not runny.  It melts really quickly, so dish it up right away.

Happy Snow Day!
