I always make the kids wait until the first BIG snow, you know the kind, big snow that stops school buses!  Then we hop on google and type in “Snow ice cream”.  There are a ton of variations, but they are all close to this one.  This one is VERY simple and we had everything, so here is the one we made:

  • 8 cups snow
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup milk

“When it starts to snow, place a large, clean bowl outside to collect the flakes. When full, stir in sugar and vanilla to taste, then stir in just enough milk for the desired consistency. Serve at once.”

We just scooped up some snow in a huge bowl, then made it.  It was OK, as long as your not expecting it to taste like…. ice cream.  But then Ethan had a GREAT idea, he took oreo cookies and crushed them into powder in a ziplock.  We added that to our snow ice cream, and it was then fantastic.  Hint: make and consume immediately!  The taste and texture drop very quick as it warms up!

Let me know if you make some, and let me know what you think.  Did you try a different recipe or add something extra?  Post in comments to let us know!
