Snow Ice Cream

Snow Ice Cream Recipe

  • Author: Anna Harpe
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Total Time: 5 minutes


  • 1 12 oz can evaporated milk
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Fresh snow, about 10 cups


  1. Mix together the evaporated milk, sugar, and vanilla in a medium bowl.
  2. Fill a large bowl with fresh, clean snow.  I try to think ahead a bit and put my biggest mixing bowl outside during a heavy snowfall.
  3. Pour your milk mixture into the bowl of snow while gently stirring.  Feel free to add more snow if needed.
  4. Scoop and top as desired.  I highly recommend sprinkles!
  5. Enjoy immediately and store any leftover snow ice cream in the freezer.


  • You can substitute the evaporated milk for half and half, heavy cream, or a dairy-free milk.  Alternatively, you can omit the sugar and use sweetened condensed milk.
  • The amount of snow you need may vary.  If your snow is light and dry, you may need more.  If your snow is heavy and wet, you could need less.
  • Try different toppings and flavors!  You can swap out vanilla for peppermint or another favorite extract and add any kind of topping you like.
