2 cups of milk
1 cup of sugar
2 teaspoons of vanilla
1 egg
A small bucket of snow (6-20 cups depending on how you like your ice cream0


1. Whisk you egg in a bowl until bubbly
2. Add the milk and keep whisking until bubbly
3. Add the vanilla-and yes, keep whisking to keep it bubbly
4. Add the sugar - keep whisking
5. at this point start adding snow, one cup at a time and keep whisking
6. Add maybe 6-12 cups of snow depending on how watery or thick you want your ice-cream
- you'll know when it's reached the perfect "state"
7. Put bowl of ice cream out in a snowbank, or in your freezer (but a snow bank is more fun !) for a few hours to completely chill
8. Enjoy !

P.S. I have heard of people adding all kinds of stuff to their snow ice cream: like melted chocolate or mint leaves and all kinds of crazy stuff-you can whatever you thibk will taste good.  I like it plain with just vanilla.

I hope you that you enjoy this recipe and I hope that you make some-it really is fun !!!!


Thank you Kymber for sharing this recipe with us.  I wanted to get it on New York State of Mind while we still have snow or some coming our way.

GoodMorning Vickie,
I had heard of it when I was a kid, but never tasted it or knew there was a recipe until Kymber said something about it. She was so kind to share the recipe with us when I asked her.

Hi Kymber,
I'm glad you like it. I will have to make it when we get some again. Right now ours is melting away and dirty snow. We are suppose to be getting some tonight. I never thought about a picture of it, either.

Your Friend,

Hello Kymber thank you for sharing the recipe-sounds lovely -glad Marilyn asked you-its probably something we should all attempt at least once in a lifetime-when snow is clean and fresh

I should have said if you have snow-some people will never see it

Hi Fionalina,

Yes, you have to live where there is snow for this recipe. Never could make this when I lived in Florida. Will have to try it with the next snow.

Oh what memories. I used to make snow cream for my kids---years ago.
Whenever we have snow, think I will make some.

I love snow cream and make it very similar to this recipe! Although we don't get much snow in Arkansas!

Hello Melissa,
Thank you for telling. I have never had it. We haven't much snow right now, but when we get some, I want to try it.

This sounds like fun. No snow right now, but it's only the middle of February, so I'm sure there will be plenty of snow coming to try the snow ice cream recipe. ~Doreen
