Stick a bowl outside before a big snow so you can make Snow Ice Cream! So easy – the perfect project for kids!
Happy Friday! I’ve got a quick and easy recipe today! You can make it with your kids next time you’re snowed in or just make it for yourself and don’t share with anyone.
I won’t judge you.
We got, like, 8 inches of snow on Wednesday. Which was fun because the weatherman said we’d get 2. He has a history of playing with my emotions so I took a chance and put a ginormous mixing bowl in the background to collect snow.
By lunchtime we had a full bowl of snow and I had a sore throat from yelling at Penelope (the husky) to keep her face out the bowl every time she went out. Seriously, a yard full of snow and she wants to eat my snow?
Ingredients for Snow Ice Cream
- Snow (I recommend putting a bowl outside to catch it so you’re not collecting snow right from the ground)
- Sweetened condensed milk
- Sprinkles or other toppings
How To Make Homemade Snow Ice Cream
- In a large mixing bowl, quickly stir together snow and sweetened condensed milk until it resembles ice cream
- Serve immediately with sprinkles or toppings of choice
We had a ton of fun making it so I put another bowl out that night and it was COVERED with snow by the time I went to bed. By about 9 am, it had all melted. Because… well, welcome to Colorado.
What Do Snow Ice Cream Taste Like?
It mostly tastes like sweetened condensed milk since that’s the only ingredient other than snow. You can always add vanilla if you wanted it to taste like vanilla ice cream.
You could also add chocolate syrup to the top for more of a chocolate ice cream.
Can You Make Snow Ice Cream with Regular Milk?
No, I wouldn’t recommend trying to use regular milk. Sweetened condensed milk is thicker than regular milk and is also already sweetened.
Can You Freeze Snow Ice Cream?
If you have leftover snow ice cream, you can put it in the freezer for another time. You may need to let it soften up a little before trying to serve it though.
I like to store my homemade ice cream in a container like this. It’s made for ice cream so it stores it perfectly and makes scooping really easy.
