A Snowy Treat

Making snow ice cream is one of the yummiest ways to while away a snow day.

A while back, our associate publisher, Logan Aguirre, shared a recipe for snow ice cream on the blog at (That’s her daughter, Lucy, gobbling it up.) It was a hit among readers, so we thought it would be fun to share the snow ice cream love one more time, with variations, for the next time there’s a fresh blanket of snow on your lawn.


Basic Snow Ice Cream Recipe

1 gallon snow
14 ounces Eagle Brand 
Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

Directions: Mix together, and enjoy!

1. Drizzle with maple syrup.
2. Whip out the rainbow sprinkles, and pour ‘em on.
3. Add chocolate chips before you mix.
4. Use rum instead of vanilla—if you’re a grown-up, of course.
5. Drop a scoop of prepared snow ice cream into some soda for a from-the-yard float.
