Snow ice cream is not about creamy, gourmet ice cream. It's about gathering snow together in between making snow angels and snowball fights, celebrating winter, and making memories. Today, we made a memory. Thank you! Read More

This recipe wasn't a total bomb as it didn't taste bad. I dont think you can really call it ice cream. The sugar makes it chunky while adding milk makes the snow runny. It also gets little chunks of frozen milk in it. I would like to try the first snow ice cream recipe but I'll have to wait as I can't leave my house for eggs due to all the smelly snow. Read More

Oh boy! This is such a fun and yummy treat! We make this everytime it snows. Another variation is to sprinkle in some kool-aid mix and have the snow cream flavored! Lime is my very favorite. Read More
