We have had plenty of snow this winter in Minnesota. There are plenty of fun things you can do with snow! From a snow paint sensory bin to snow day treats, there are so many fun things to do!

The kids wanted to try making all different flavors of snow ice cream! We decided to experiment with a bunch of different flavors. We don’t drink a lot of dairy so I have a non-dairy option for those of you that don’t do dairy. It worked great!

Snow Ice Cream

Making snow ice cream is something that every kid should try at least once! It’s a right of passage in the areas where snow falls. You can either find a good source for clean snow or you can put out a bowl before a snowstorm and collect fresh snow in the bowl. It only takes five minutes to whip up a batch of snow ice cream so you don’t need much time or many ingredients!

How To Make Snow Ice Cream

To make snow ice cream you’ll need four cups of fresh, clean snow. Take it from an area where no one walks (we took it from our back deck because no one goes on it in the winter).


snow ice cream ingredients


Mix together milk (we used rice milk for non-dairy snow ice cream), sugar and the extract of your choosing. We have tried all different flavors! We used vanilla extract, almond extract, banana extract, and root beer extract. They were all yummy!!

There are so many different flavors of extracts available that you could make all kinds of flavors.
