Homemade snow ice cream will never be confused with rich, creamy premium ice cream, but if you have access to some pristine, freshly fallen snow, making your own ice cream is a fun winter project.

Makes 4-6 Servings of Snow Ice Cream


  • 2 quarts packed fresh snow
  • 1/2 cup half and half, or as needed
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips, optional


Be sure you have pure, clean snow - preferably collected by placing out a large bowl in a snowstorm. Stir in the sugar, vanilla extract, and enough half and half to create the proper texture. Stir in chocolate chips if using. Serve immediately!
