Southern Snow Cream

Herb is chillin'.

Popsicle toys!

My mom and grandma always treated us with snow cream when it snowed. They always said you couldn't use the first snow. I'm not sure if that was just superstition or if it's grounded in some theory that the first snow catches pollution from the air and after that first snow, it's 'clean'. Since this is not our first snow of the season, I set a bowl outside to catch some. Here's my recipe for snow cream. I like to top it with cinnamon, for what I like to call "Snickerdoodle Snow Cream". Bailey's makes for a very nice topping as well. ;) Do you have a different recipe for snow cream? I'd love to hear it! Please share.

Southern Snow Cream


    • fresh clean snow
    • 1 (14 ounce) cans sweetened condensed milk ( fat free works great too)
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla


  1. Gather fresh, clean snow in a large bowl or place a bowl outside after it starts to snow to catch it.
  2. You will need the bowl to be very full.
  3. Mix in the sweetened condensed milk& vanilla.
  4. As you stir the snow will reduce by about half.
  5. Keep mixing, by hand, until thoroughly combined; it will take a few minutes.
  6. Mix in or top with desired candies, sprinkles or ice cream toppings; or enjoy plain.
