Frugal Fun: How to Make Snow Ice Cream (a.k.a. Winter Bliss in a Bowl)

Bookmark and Share

We are getting lots of traffic on our Snow Ice Cream recipe from a few years ago ~ thought we’d pull it out of the archives and “dust it off” for all of our readers…

Something New to Try
On this fluffy-white, beautiful snow day, I thought it would be fun to make snow ice cream for the first time.  I remember my parents sharing memories about making the treat when they were kiddos (they grew up where snow was a more frequent occurence than Fort Worth), and I always thought it sounded like the ultimate “fun food!”

I do believe this is just the thing to try on this wonderful winter day, and have already set my largest bowl outside to catch a container-full of winter bliss.

Following is the recipe I used, which comes with great reviews from

Bon Appetite, y’all!

Snow Ice Cream Recipe


1 gallon snow
1 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups milk (or half and half for a richer taste)


  1. When it starts to snow, place a large, clean bowl outside to collect the flakes.
  2. When full, stir in sugar and vanilla to taste, then stir in just enough milk for the desired consistency.
  3. Serve at once.

Options:  Personally, we like ths recipe best, as is, but you can also try mixing other favorite ingredients such as cocoa powder, cinnamon, coconut, or chocolate chips. Get creative and the kids (big and small) will have a blast making it.

Do you have a special winter memory?  We’d love to hear about it
