Kids in the Kitchen: Snow Ice Cream

kids in the kitchen

What was supposed to be the first full week back from Christmas vacation turned into a week of snow and BELOW freezing temperatures. All over Facebook I was seeing friends talk about snow ice cream so I decided to finally give it a try with my kids. I was making Roasted Tomato Soup for dinner and still had 40 minutes before it would be ready so we had our dessert first.

Kids in the Kitchen Making Snow Ice Cream

Snow Ice Cream


  • 1 cup Milk or Heavy Cream
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 6 cups Fresh Fluffy Snow


  1. Stir together your milk or cream with the sugar and vanilla. Start adding in the snow until you have an ice cream consistency.

I think this recipe would taste better with cream instead of milk. It was an overwhelming vanilla taste to it and I think the cream would have balanced it out a bit more. The kids absolutely loved it, though!

  1. As long as the kids loved it!

    I can’t see us ever making this, but I guess that’s the downfall to living in South Texas!

  2. thank you for the party! no snow here in FL either 🙁 but i bet the ice cream’s wonderful!

  3. Oh my goodness, how fun! We haven’t had any snowfall yet this season – I’m hoping it comes soon! I love fresh snow – it’s so pretty!

  4. I am an embarrassed Canadian – I have never heard of this before. On our next good snow fall I will have to try it out.

  5. This is a wonderful idea! Looks like tons of fun!

  6. It’s been a few years since we made snow ice cream. I am not sure what recipe I used, I am seeing a lot of different ones out there. Hoping to get enough snow to make some this year.
    I would love if you would stop by and share on my weekly recipe linky, Kids and a Mom in the Kitchen
    Have a great evening.
