Snow Cream Recipes

As we're preparing to be hit with several inches of snow, here are some snow cream recipes I've collected from various sources online. I grew up in Cleveland and never even heard of Snow Cream until I moved to NC - I might need to try this with my kids today!

Some suggestions I've read:

  • Add in chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, or sprinkles
  • Use food coloring to change the color
  • Use different flavorings in place of (or in addition to) vanilla
  • Use chocolate milk instead of regular milk
  • Top with syrups or candy
  • Use almond milk, coconut milk, or other alternative milk instead of cow milk
  • Sweeten with maple syrup or honey instead of sugar


Snow Cream Recipes

Snow Cream I (makes 4 servings)
  • 1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 gallon snow
Directions: In a large bowl, combine evaporated milk, eggs, vanilla and sugar until smooth. Gradually stir in snow until mixture reaches desired consistency. Eat at once.


Snow Cream II (makes 8 servings)

  • 1 gallon snow
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups milk
Directions: When it starts to snow, place a large, clean bowl outside to collect the flakes. When full, stir in sugar and vanilla to taste, then stir in just enough milk for the desired consistency. Serve at once.


Snow Cream III (makes 6 servings)

  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 gallon clean fresh snow
Directions: Stir sweetened condensed milk, sugar, and vanilla extract together in a large bowl until smooth. Gradually stir snow into milk mixture until your desired consistency is reached.


Snow Cream IV (makes 8-10 servings)
  • 8 cups snow, or shaved ice
  • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Directions: Place snow or shaved ice into a large bowl. Pour condensed milk over and add vanilla. Mix to combine. Serve immediately in bowls.


Snow Cream V (makes 4 servings)
  • 1 cup half and half or milk
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup granulated sugar (adjust to your taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 to 6 cups clean, freshly fallen snow
Directions: In a large bowl combine half and half, vanilla extract and sugar. Stir until sugar is dissolved, about 3 minutes. Stir in snow, a cup at a time, until the ice cream magically forms! Freeze for several minutes if desired before serving.



Happy Snow Day!
