What You Need

  • bowl
  • spoon
  • clean snow
  • sugar
  • vanilla extract
  • milk or cream
  • toppings such as berries, jam, chocolate sauce or maple syrup (optional)

What You Do

  1. Put your bowl in the snow to keep it cold.
  2. Scoop some fresh, clean snow into the bowl.
  3. Add a little sugar, a few drops of vanilla extract, and some very cold milk or cream. Stir everything together. Do a taste test to see if you need to add more of something to get the thickness or flavor just right.
  4. Add a topping or two if you want to dress up your snow ice cream.
  5. Enjoy the ice cream at a snowy winter picnic!
