Snow Ice Cream

It's finally here!  Today is birthday party day at our house!  The big Micky Mouse birthday bash is happening today!  Well, at least birthday party #1 (with friends).  Birthday party #2 (with family) will be tomorrow.  Whew!  I have no doubts that I will be taking a nap at some point today.  But I absolutely can't wait to share all of the party details with you!

In the mean time, I thought I would share just one quick moment from our W is for Winter Mommy School unit.  I haven't been the best about taking pictures of our activities and art projects this time around.  Maybe I'm still burnt out from taking a bazillion pictures through the holidays!  But I had to grab the camera when Little Man experienced snow ice cream for the very first time.

I'm sure you've made this before.  I remember enjoying this fun treat growing up, too!

Snow ice cream is so easy and fun to make!

Here is the recipe we use:

8 c. clean snow

1-1.5 c. milk

1/2 c. sugar

1/2 tsp. vanilla

Here in Colorado, we have had quite a bit of snow during the last few weeks!  So we just waited for fresh snowfall, and knew we could make our own yummy treat!  Little Man loved helping to measure and mix it up!  And it had a yummy sorbet-like texture.

Do you make snow ice cream?

Stay warm this weekend!

  1. We made snow ice cream growing up…but there has not been enough snow in Chicago this year to even make a snowball 🙁

  2. I live in Aurora! When we had that big storm a few weeks ago, I made snow ice cream for my little guy and myself for the first time! 🙂

  3. Cute, cute, cute! We haven’t had any accountable snow in TN (yay!) this winter and are really only just now getting some cold temps. I know my oldest would love to try this though!!

  4. I grew up in Colorado (Alamosa), and we used to do that all the time! I started to think I was a little strange when nobody else I’ve ever met seemed to know about snow ice cream. Glad to know I’m not alone!

  5. What an awesome idea!! I must try this next time it snows (it’s summer here right now). I love the look on this face – pure joy!

  6. I’m from AZ and I’ve never heard of snow ice cream….until now. I thought you were talking about sno cones and shaved ice!

    I have been wondering who your little man looks like and I now remember. He looks like the twins on Everyone loves Raymond. I hope the birthday party goes well.

  8. Happy Birthday to your adorable little man! Hope he has a great party.

    We’ve made Snow Cream (as we call it) in the past, but we’ve been sorely lacking in the snow department this year in Ohio.

    I’m distressed!

  9. I love you site and just wanted to let you know that I grabbed your button to link up on my blog! 🙂 Keep up the great work!

  10. You know that snow comes from the same air which is polluted not only by gas fumes from vehicles, but from whatever might have been in the original water source it came from? So… maybe not so clean now as when we were kids. Sorry to burst your snow cone bubble.

      No bubble burst here! We enjoyed every bite of our snow ice cream and will definitely plan to make it again! 🙂
