It is FREEZING outside! With 1 snow day for the kids under our belts, and another one coming tomorrow what can we do with all this snow, and the kids!? How about making some ice cream from the snow? We intend on making some tomorrow during our play date with our neighbors!! Last year, we didn’t have the opportunity to make any snow ice cream, because we barely had snow, BUT this year – we definitely will have a chance!!





Prep Time: 20 minutes


Total Time: 20 minutes



  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cups sugar
  • CLEAN Snow



Put on your warm clothes and take the kids outside to collect 4 – 5 cups of fresh, clean snow. Don’t pack the snow, just scoop it up. Bring it in the house and set it in the freezer while you prepare the other ingredients.Mix together the milk, vanilla, and the sugar. Stir this mixture until the sugar is dissolved. Slowly add the snow to your mixture, stirring constantly, until it is as thick as ice cream. Now it is ready to east and enjoy. 
PLEASE feel free to post and share your experience with us. If you do not have little ones, why not make it with some friends or your spouse!? Either way, bundle up and stay warm!! Plus, let’s hope for a few more snow days/cold days this week to spend some more time together….

My 6 year old has her jammies backwards and has flushed ice cubes down the toilet the past few days!!!
