5 minute Snow Ice Cream

When life gives you snow you make ice cream right? It’s a nice way to treat yourself after breaking a sweat struggling to stuff your kids into their snowpants and jackets and arguing with them why they need a hat and gloves. All that work only for them to run outside and play for 5 minutes, you deserve something sweet.  And I suppose the little ones like it too!

Using only 4 ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen, this is the easiest recipe to make your own snow ice cream.

Ingredients:

  • Fresh snow (I used about 6 cups)
  • 1/3 cup Granulated sugar
  • 1 cup Milk
  • dash of Salt
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract

Directions:

  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together all of your non-snow ingredients. Throw in the fridge while you go gather your snow.

  • Next, go outside and fill a large mixing bowl with snow. Your kids can help you with this part.

  • Bring your snow inside and immediately stir into your mixture you made earlier. Keep adding more snow until you get a scoopable ice cream consistency. I used about 6 cups. (You may need more snow depending on how light it is)

  • Scoop into dishes to serve or store in an air-tight container in your freezer for later. We prefer ours with sprinkles and in our PJs!
