If God Gives You Snow . . .


The calendar on my wall and my internal clock both tell me it's time for spring. Someone failed to get the memo to Old Man Winter - we have snow in the forcast again this weekend! And so this post I prepared last month but failed to publish is still timely, I suppose. 

We won't get enough snow this weekend to make ice cream (I hope!) but we did last month. 2 storms totaling nearly 2 feet of snow meant snow ice cream!

 What you'll need:
1 gallon or so of fresh, beautiful snow
1 cup sugar (a little more or less will do, to suit your taste)
1 tsp vanilla extract (or your favorite flavoring (mint, cherry, maple)
1 cup cream or milk (or chocolate milk or strawberry milk, half 'n half works too)

Step 1:  Mix snow, sugar and flavoring together.

 Step 2: Add cream (or milk) and mix well.

Step 3: Serve it up with your favorite toppings

Step 4: Have your handy-dandy taste testers standing by making sure you've followed your recipe accurately.

You can't go wrong with Classic Vanilla Ice Cream, but you can easily adapt this to your family's favorite flavors.  This recipe is very forgiving - if it isn't sweet enough, add more sugar, if it is too dry, add more cream. Need more flavor? Add more! Enjoy!!!


  1. Oh my goodness - My children would be thrilled with this! What a wonderful winter treat!

    1. It's been several winters since we've had enough snow to enjoy this treat, so yes,it was wonderful! Thank you for stopping by!

  2. This is SUCH a creative idea! I grew up in New York and when it would snow, I actually enjoyed eating the snow as it with the incredible sweet tooth God has given me, you can see why this recipe for "snow" ice cream is right up my alley! Now my husband and I live in Florida, and I don't expect a major snowstorm in the foreseeable future, but my next trip "home" for the holidays, you can bet I'm going to be looking for an opportunity to whip up this yummy, chilly creation!

    (Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog, by the way. They have me smiling from ear to ear. So happy that Beth connected us!)

    1. I'm surprised a girl from New York has never made snow ice cream! I hope you'll get a chance to experience it one day.
      Love visiting your blog, you are fun and inspiring!
