When it was done around me it was never real formal just milk, a lot of sugar, a bit of vanilla and some snow.  Amounts depend on how sweet you like it and how hard or stiff

I had never heard of snow cream before about a year ago, and I grew up in Illinois where we had plenty of snow! I don't know that it actually makes a superbly tasty ice cream. It may be that the snow is readily available when it snows and it's fun to use it to make ice cream. But I think I agree with others on this thread that are a little cautious about using snow for ice cream. I don't think I'd trust it unless you live out in the country or mountains or somewhere like that. :peace:

We mix snow, milk, sugar and vanilla together to make snow cream.  There is a local dairy that makes Snow Cream Ice Cream.  It is very good.
Have a wonderful day!

My mom made it a time or two when we were little but I'd be afraid to eat snow cream now.  I'd rather have blue bell or homemade ice cream than snow cream any day lol

For those of you who live in areas where it snows, do you make snow cream and if you do would you be so kind to share how you make it.

I just use milk, sugar, and vanilla.  I have put chocolate syrup and strawberry syrup like for milk in it too.  I have saw different ways to make it on Pinterest.  Adding more stuff.  I like the simple way I do it.

Is snow pure enough these days to eat?

It is as safe as the stuff you get at grocery stores.  Look at all the recalls lately. haha  I guess it could also depend on where you live and the air quality in your area.  If you live in NYC it may be less safe that in a less populated state in the country lands. :D

If it's like a slushy then yes, I've had snow cream. I wouldn't try eating snow from outside though! The president may believe there's no such things as man made or natural climate change happenings but what has happened nature wise last year & the last few months of the new year, tells me different! Last week it snowed here in Florida the sunshine state! Last time it rained the water bucket collected brownish red water! You really can't trust what comes from the sky anymore when it's dealing with anything clean coming from nature!

I never heard of that, but not sure I would eat snow....well maybe a little if it had just fallen.

I love snow though, for the most part....till it melts and becomes ice. Of course, it is not snow at that point.

Snow pretties up the drab leafless trees and dead grass of winter.  I enjoy it.

I love cold stuff to eat, so it is probably very tasty.  So naturally, ice cream is my fave dessert :)

I don't think that would be a good idea, remember don't eat the yellow snow :silly: 8)

I've never heard of that before, but the idea makes me wish even more that I lived somewhere where it snowed! I wonder how that would taste.

We really enjoy it.  Made it with Sweetened Condensed milk and a little vanilla.  Mixed it with a electric hand mixer.  It's a treat for us since we don't get much snow.  Maybe that's why we like it, it's a rare treat!    :)
