Snow ice creamWhen it begins to snow, place a bowl outside to catch the snow as it falls. The bowl should hold approximately 8 cups so it can fit 6 cups of snow and have room to mix. When the bowl is full, mix in sugar and vanilla and then slowly add milk until it is the desired consistency. Snow ice cream in bowlWe found that we prefer for the finished ice cream to be more like crumbles than traditional ice cream because it packs down when you scoop it into bowls or cones. If you add too much milk, the ice cream will melt incredibly fast, especially if you eat it indoors. For this reason, we like to eat it outside while enjoying a little snow.

  1. I will have to try your recipe. Ever since I was a kid we would just pour homemade maple syrup on our snow to make our “ice cream.”

  2. I like that yoiu specify clean snow. If you don’t have access to clean snow, just make chocolate. The added dirt would make it organic.
