This snow ice cream recipe is made with just 4 ingredients: fresh snow, evaporated milk, a little sugar & vanilla. Four ingredients never tasted so good!



  • 1 can evaporated milk (12 ounces)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Bowl of Snow (about 1/2 gallon)


  1. In a small bowl, mix the milk, sugar, and vanilla together until well combined.
  2. In a large bowl, add about 8-10 cups of snow. Pour the milk mixture over the top and stir well to combine. The texture will be close to that of homemade ice cream (thinner than store-bought ice cream but still have some structure when scooped).
  3. Serve right away, adding sprinkles if you’d like.
