How To Make Snow Ice Cream 

Gather the kids around the patio table and learn how to make Snow Ice Cream. It is the perfect afternoon activity on a snow day and it’s tasty too.

My family has recently relocated from Southern California to Washington so you can imagine the excitement for our first days of snow. One of the many snow activities I have always wanted to try is Fresh Snow Ice Cream. 

The Prep Work

Freeze Stainless Steel Bowls for collecting your snow. This will help keep your snow from melting too soon.

Place your empty bowls out on a patio table to catch the falling snow instead of scooping it up out of the yard for obvious reasons. Fresh clean snow is always best!


Unpacked snow works best. Do not pack the snow into the bowl, as this will make your snow cream less creamy. I used my largest mixing bowl, so I had plenty of mixing space to work with.

This is a dessert to be enjoyed freshly made and will not freeze or hold up in the freezer properly. Make sure to eat right away. 


  • 1/3 Cup of Sugar
  • 1 Cup of Milk
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Vanilla
  • 8-10 Cups of Fresh Snow
  • Sprinkles (optional)


  • Fill your bowl with snow
  • Add in your sugar, milk and vanilla and mix it up well.
  • Serve in a small bowl, in a mug or even in an ice cream cone. 
  • Don’t forget the sprinkles for an extra special touch.
I should have had some ice cream cones prepared but bowls work all the same.

Don’t be afraid to play with flavors. This is all about for the fun. This is a milk-based dessert so stick with the basics Strawberry, Chocolate, or Cherry I would like to try adding shredded coconut to the mix next time I made it. Yum! 

Flavor Add-in Ideas

McCormick makes a nice selection if you would like to try a flavor other than vanilla.

Such a great idea to make with the kids.
