What To Do On a Snowy Day? Make Snow Ice Cream!

How do you become the “Best Mom in the World” in 5 Minutes…..Show your kids how to make Snow Ice Cream!  

Is it snowing out and the kids are cooped up and getting restless?  Send them outside to gather some snow.  Then, throw the snow and the other 4 ingredients in a mixer and five minutes later, you will have vanilla snow ice cream.  Top your Snow Ice Cream with Sprinkles

Ingredients for Snow Ice Cream:

  • 12-16 cups of fresh snow
  • 1.5 cups of milk
  • 3 tablespoons vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup sugar


Mix 5 Ingredients together to make Snow Ice Cream

Gather all your ingredients first (except the snow because we don’t want it to star melting). Mix the milk, vanilla, salt and sugar together in a large measuring cup or bowl.

Grab a large bowl and head outside to get approximately 12-16 cups of snow (if your ice cream is too liquidy, then add more snow later).

Fill your mixing bowl with the snow, and slowly add the milk mixture.  Run your mixer until all the ingredients are mixed together.  Viola!  Snow Ice cream.    *Generally after all that mixing, it is a little soft.  I put it into a freezer safe bowl and refreeze it before serving.*

Top with your favorite toppings, sprinkles are always a favorite!

Trust me, your kids will think an instant ‘Mom of the Year’ award  should be given to you.
