Absolute Best Snow Cream Recipe!

Snow Cream Recipe You Must Try!

Here in North Carolina, snow has been falling all day today. It is like a winter wonderland here with over EIGHT inches of fluffy white snow. I am originally from the suburbs of Chicago. Snow was pretty common for me growing up but when we moved to North Carolina, snow was few and far between. This winter, we have already had three good snow falls here! That is far more than a normal winter.

Today, we enjoyed a pot of hot chili after pulling the kids behind the four-wheeler on a sled. A little redneck… maybe… but if you have tried it before and do not have snow or a four-wheeler readily available you are probably a little jealous right now! Regardless of all the fun, we are finishing out with a game of spades with some friends and snow cream!

My mom called about the time that I was serving my daughter her first ever snow cream. She told my mom what she was about to eat. Of course, the common phrase when someone talks about eating snow came out of my mom’s mouth, “Don’t eat yellow snow!”. Camila looked down at her bowl and looked back at me. The look she gave was priceless! Yes, this snow cream IS yellow but not because we used yellow snow. Just a tip… make sure shortly after the snow begins to place a clean bowl outside. We like to set it on top of the car so that it is out of the way of any neighborhood dogs.

Just make sure that you have some sweetened condensed milk, milk, and vanilla on hand for the next snow! This snow cream recipe is AMAZING!

  1. My mom used to make snow cream when I was a little girl in TN. We only got a few flurries and tons of rain where I live in SC bu looks like you had fun!

  2. I use to eat snow ice cream a lot when I was a kid. I think the next snow we have I will make it again. Thanks for the memory

  3. Snow cream was a treat when I was a child. We get plenty of snow here an dit is still fun making it. Also keep it out of the way of bird feeders or under trees 🙂 I like vanilla the best!

  4. What a fun way to celebrate a fresh snow storm. I’ve always wanted to try this, if I ever live where the air is clean enough that I feel the snow is OK, I would love to make this.

  5. What a fun treat to make. I have never had snow cream before and it looks and sounds so delicious. We haven’t had a lot of heavy snows here so I will have to wait and see if we get more snow this winter or not. I would love to try it.

  6. Oh, you HAVE to make some snow cream if you get some snow there! Even if you only get a small amount of snow, you can use multiple containers to catch the snow or even cut the recipe down to make a smaller portion. It is amazing. We are making more tonight. It isn’t typical for us to get this much snow. We wound up with 8 inches of snow total! In the 60’s this Saturday and Sunday so it will go away fast!

  7. I have always wanted to try making this with my nephew! I know what we’re going to do next time it snows! Thank you for the recipe!

  8. It sounds like y’all had so much fun. I wish we got enough snow to enjoy it like that. We have seen snow this year which is not the normal. And that snow cream looks so so good. I could eat some now. I’m so glad she enjoyed it.

  9. Wow, I can’t believe that I have never heard of snow cream before! And I grew up in Oregon where it used to snow all of the time! I am sad that we live in Texas now, so I won’t be able to try this! It sounds so good, and I bet my kids would get a kick out of it too. 🙂 Thank you so much for sharing!

  10. This sounds yummy! It is 50 degrees today here in Michigan, not normal for January. Honestly, I wish it was snowing like that.

  11. I remember when my husband made me my first snow cream years ago. It was really good. He also shared the story when he was a young boy and his first snow cream.

  12. I have never heard of snow cream. Maybe it’s because I live in Florida. It looks so delicious and easy to make.

  13. i havent had snow cream in years,,my dad used to make the best ever,,will try this reciepe as soon as we get some good snow

  14. I was raised up on snow cream, in Tennessee, I always looked forward to it snowing so I could have snow cream, love the recipe

  15. It sounds yummy but when I first read it I was like eww snow can’t be safe to eat.

  16. This would be so much fun to do with my granddaughter this winter. She would get a kick out of it

  17. This is a great idea! I bet my kids would think that this was the most amazing thing to do with snow.
