As a kid growing up there was nothing more exciting then finding out it was going to snow. I have great memories of building snowmen, ice skating in my driveway, and snowball fights with my brother and friends, but one of my favorite things was my Mom making snow cream.

How to make Snow Cream


When you hear a storm is coming the fastest things to fly off the shelf are bread and milk.  A friend asked why milk and I told her to make snow cream of course.

Ingredients needed:
Snow – 4-6 cups
Milk – 1 cup
Sugar – 1/2 cup
Vanilla – 1/2 teaspoon
Optional:  Toppings (sprinkles, chocolate sauce or chips, caramel, the possibilities are endless)

Step 1:  Combine Milk, sugar and vanilla into a bowl
Step 2:  Get 4-6 cups of fresh white snow and stir into the bowl

With all the snow we’re getting I decided to let my kids enjoy this special treat, and I’m looking forward to keeping this traditional alive.

Did you grow up eating snow cream?  How do you eat it plain or with toppings?
