Snow Ice Cream

Yesterday the kids had a Snow Day from school as a storm was rolling in.  Denver gets most of our snow in March and April, so when I am ready to go plant flowers...I don't until the end of May due to our crazy Spring storms.  Anyway...  I sent them outside to get a big bowl of snow (white, specifically. lol) while I mixed up the rest of the ingredients to make Snow Ice Cream.  I was way impressed with it as it tasted like homemade ice cream.  Possibly a touch sweeter, but who cares, right?

Snow Ice Cream
Big bowl of white snow
2 eggs
4 cups milk
2 cups sugar
3 tsp vanilla extract
1/4cup - 1/2cup sweetened condensed milk

send kids out to get snow
meanwhile, whisk the eggs until bubbly (1-2 minutes)
add milk and whisk until bubbly some more (1-2 minutes)
add sugar and whisk until bubbly again (1-2 minutes...notice a pattern here??)
add vanilla, whisk until you know when
add snow and sweetened condensed milk and stir with wooden spoon

Eat and Enjoy!


  1. Wow, so you made one with raw eggs?? Sarah

    1. I did. That didn't actually cross my mind until you posted that :) I think most homemade ice creams are made with raw eggs. My brother uses a lot of raw eggs making his ice cream...
