Snow Ice Cream

When God blesses you with 5 more inches of fresh snow in your yard you naturally enjoy looking at it for awhile, but then you really need to take dominion. One usually takes dominion by shoveling and placing the snow in a place where it doesn't make life difficult. A better way to take dominion is to eat the snow! Granted, we only took dominion over one gallon this time, but you've got to start somewhere.

The recipe below came from our neighbors at Marjo Acres, who also turn out a tasty gallon or two of milk on a regular basis.

1 cup cream (I can't imagine this recipe with anything but fresh, raw cream)
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup sugar

Mix all ingredients and pour over 4 quarts of clean snow. Mix well.

The original recipe called for 1 cup of sugar, but we found half that amount was plenty.

After warming yourself with lots of shoveling, who doesn't crave ice cream in the middle of winter?

Thanks for visiting!


  1. I'm glad that your ice cream turned out well. So, if you put it into a cone, does it count as a snow cone? ;-)

    BTW, I'm really weird when it comes to my favorite method of taking dominion over snow. When I have a cup of coffee, there's something very satisfying about dumping just a little bit of it into the snow. Melting a smiley face into the snow can also be nifty provided that not too much coffee gets wasted.

  2. Oh my gracious me! Eggs? Raw cream? This is snow ice cream as I have never seen it before. I have been looking for a source of raw milk for ages now, and had kinda given up hope. I think you just might have given me the motivation to renew my efforts☺

  3. We used to do something sort of like this, only we called it "Chocolate Snow". I don't even remember how we made it, but it sure tasted good!

  4. How funny! I've never met anyone else who makes snow ice cream! My grandfather always made it for my brother and I!

    Thanks for sharing! :)
