Snow Ice Cream


We Arkansans live pretty humid-weathered lives. We dream of snow, but we really don’t cope well with the cold. Seriously, this southern gal is not built for this. But, here it is. Right now, we have over 9 inches on Petit Jean Mountain and projecting -4 degrees tonight, for the love. The kids are all in virtual school so that means after that last online discussion, they’re outside and ready to enjoy the beautiful snow. That also means moms are washing 12 extra loads of clothes and trying to find some warm, fun games for when they are inside warming up drinking their hot cocoa.

Want a fun, delicious way to create fond memories of the February 2021 Snowpocalypse? Then let’s make SNOW ICE CREAM. It takes just a couple minutes and is such a special treat.

When it starts to snow, place a large, clean bowl outside to collect the flakes. While it is filling, here are some fun ideas for the kids:

Snow Ice Cream

  • Build a snowman or sculpture.
  • Go sledding.
  • Walk around with a yardstick and measure how deep the snow is in different areas.
  • Fill spray bottles with water and food coloring and let the kids loose in the yard to draw graffiti on the snow.
  • Make Big Foot footprints then try to convince your brother that Big Foot lives in your woods. Oh wait, that is just at my house, sorry.
  • Snowball fight, OUCH!
  • Redeem yourself from hitting people with snowballs by making snow angels.

Hopefully, the bowl is full now.

Snow Ice Cream

You will need:

  • 8 cups snow, clean
  • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk (or 1 cup of milk plus half cup of sugar)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions for Snow Ice Cream: Pour condensed milk over bowl of snow and add vanilla. Mix to combine. Eat immediately (by a fire)!

For chocolate snow ice cream, add 5 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder. And, add sprinkles, yes, always add sprinkles.

Stay safe, stay warm, round 2 is on its way. Have mercy.
