Snow Ice Cream

One of my favorite family traditions is making snow ice cream.  It is such a magical thing to turn snow into something so yummy right before you kids own eyes.  My mom used to always send me out into the first snow of the year with a big bowl and spoon.  After filling it up to the top I would bring it in to her and she would make the magic happen.  Now that I have my own kids we enjoy doing the same thing.  The recipe we use is very simple.

Snow Ice Cream
1 extra large bowl full of snow, fluffy not mashed
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
1 Tbsp. of vanilla

Mix snow, sweetened condensed milk and vanilla together (I like to use a potato masher).  Add milk until the creaminess you immediately.  It melts quite fast!!  Add your favorite toppings...chocolate chips, bananas, nuts, chocolate syrup etc...  The remaining ice cream (if you have any) can be frozen.  However, you will have to slightly defrost it and mix it up again.  Otherwise, it tends to form a hard rock.

  1. Snow cream! I always thought this was so cool growing up. Too bad we never have any snow around here to make any!

  2. Ohh! How fun, I just posted about us making some awhile back!! Our recipe is the same except we use egg in ours. Not sure if it makes a difference but I'll have to try it without now! PS-I'm loving the new background too! :)

  3. We LOVE this and are featuring you today on our blog!!! Thanks for sharing this in our crafty showcase!
