When life gives you snow.....make Snow Ice Cream!!!

As you all know a good portion of the Midwest was hit with a giant snow storm yesterday. Or as some headlines called it Storm Q, Snowmagedon, Thundersnow, or Snowpocolyps. But where I live we were lucky enough to miss the worst of it. We still managed to get a few inches of the fluffy white stuff. A friend of mine on FB decided to make the best of a bad situation by making snow ice cream for her and her roommate at college.  So I googled snow ice cream to find a recipe and the best one I found came from TLC the TV channel's website. I thought that would be a fun little activity to try so my sister and  I gave it a shot and it turned out amazing!!!

The tools/ingredients are:
  • Snow- for some reason they tell you to use pure white snow. I don't know why we have to be racist against our snow :)
  • Bowl
  • Spoon
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Milk/cream

Scoop some snow into a bowl enough for a serving and enough so that when you add the milk it doesn't all melt away

Add a little sugar and a few drops of vanilla

Mix together adding the milk little at a time until you get consistency you want
This is the finished product!! Enjoy


  1. My husband LOVES snow ice cream! I will have to put this on our "pros" list of moving back to the frozen tundra. Funny story- I had never heard of it before dating him and he still to this day insists that he invented it! Ha, I'm gonna tell him someone stole the secret family recipe and posted it on TLC.

    1. That's funny. I have had friends before make it but we never did. But yesterday a friend on FB posted a picture of it and I thought I should finally make it. It was the best decision ever!!!
