Xplor More: It's Time to Make Snow Ice Cream

By | December 1, 2010
From Xplor: December 2010/January 2011

Need a good way to refuel after a long day of playing in the snow? Make some snow cream. Just follow the recipe below to make this easy, yummy treat.


  • 2 cups fresh, clean snow
  • ¼ cup of cold milk
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Vanilla flavoring, chocolate syrup or mini chocolate chips


  1. Gather 2 cups of fresh, clean snow in a cup. Newly fallen snow is best. Don’t pack it in as you would to make a snowball. Let it stay loose and fluffy.
  2. Pour milk and sugar into the cup.
  3. Add your choice of flavoring. For vanilla snow cream, add ½ teaspoon of vanilla flavoring. For chocolate snow cream, add about 3 tablespoons of chocolate syrup—more if you really like chocolate. A handful of mini chocolate chips is a yummy addition to either kind.
  4. Mix well with a spoon. Don’t mix too much, though, or your snow cream will get watery. It should have the texture of a thick ice cream shake.
  5. Enjoy!
