With the additional snowfall we received last night, it’s the perfect day to make snow cream.

What is snow cream? Basically, it’s snow ice cream and many consider it a Southern thing. In the South, it’s not a “dessert” you can make very often, so now is a great time to try it!

The recipe is super simple. If you Google it, you will see a pretty consistent recipe with a few variations.

Here’s a basic recipe. You can expand on this by trying different types of milk/cream or toppings.

  • 1 cup Milk (any kind of milk – the snow cream will have a different texture based on what type of milk you use)
    *I’ve seen recipes that use evaporated milk, whipping cream, heavy cream or a combination. Use whatever you have and experiment!
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 8 (or so) cups of clean snow
  • a pinch of salt

Whisk milk, sugar, vanilla and salt and set aside while you gather your 8 cups of snow (I put mine in the freezer.)

Once you’ve collected your snow, give your ingredients another hearty mix and then add your snow. Use a wooden spoon to mix it all up until you reach an ice cream-like consistency (it will look like homemade ice cream, not so much like store bought ice cream). Add toppings, serve and eat immediately. It will melt fast!
