Snow Cream

Fittingly, our themes for the past few weeks have been snow and ice. So we decided to put some of our snow to good use this weekend and make snow cream!

This is quite simple to do and my 2.5 year old was able to virtually make this on his own!

Gather 4-6 cups of fresh snow.

Mix in (these are approximate-- measure to taste) 3/4 cup of heavy cream or milk, 1 teaspoon of vanilla, and 1/4 cup of sugar. Stir briskly a few times, and voila! Homemade ice cream!

This tastes amazing-- just like homemade ice cream from an ice cream maker!

We made another batch yesterday for Grandma and Auntie and plan to do some more for dessert tonight!


  1. What fun! If we ever got snow down here, I'd give it a try. :o(

  2. Very fun! I wouldn't mind some snow.

    Did you get my invitation?

  3. Hi Chrissy! I wish I could FedEx you some...there's plenty to spare! No, I didn't get your invitation. Was it via email? I don't have Yahoo anymore, but my Hotmail address is zuzu 822 at hotmail dot com. :-)
