Make sure the snow or ice you use is “fluffy” and not small chunks of ice.  The fluffier the better!  I added a little Pinnacle Cake flavored vodka to my ice cream and it seemed to keep the ice cream a softer smoother consistency but you could substitute any liqueur.  If you don’t want the alcohol, just substitute milk or cream and some powdered cake mix

I have a few other snow ice cream recipes to check out (some of these are old so please don’t mind the OLD pictures)…

Make sure you mix all ingredients together BEFORE you go outside and get your snow.  Soon as you bring the snow inside it will melt quick!

A few other snow recipes from other sites that I thought you might enjoy:


  1. I love this–and I love how you work alcohol into everything…I respect that :)

  2. How fun that you used snow to make this!!

  3. I need to get some cake batter vodka. Since we have snow coming, this recipe may be the perfect excuse.

  4. This is INGENIOUS. Now if only we could have another snowpocalypse in London, and if only I could get out there before the snow turns grey/yellow… maybe a trip to the country is in order.

      Anne, you definitely need the right kind of snow to make ice cream. You can also use fluffy shaved ice. Although I love snow ice cream, I’m hoping we don’t get anymore snow this year. :)

  5. What a fun recipe! Love it!

  6. Too bad the snow is already gone! This looks great and so not like Snow Cream that its ridiculous… nice work!! (on a side note, I need to clear space somewhere in my house to buy all these crazy awesome flavored vodkas)

  7. Simply Tia says:

    Oh my! Great start to my morning, this ice cream looks phenomenal! I bet it’s really delicious!

  8. What a fun idea this is! I love the flavor of cake batter ice cream. I have been wanting to try that Vodka, I have heard good things about it!

    This is a faboulous website very user friendly

  10. LOVE this idea!!

  11. I really like how you put a little twist on snow ice cream, I’ve only ever had vanilla, so it;ll be fun to try something else. I love going to the stores or an ice cream shop to get ideas for new flavors. It’s amazing how you can essentially turn anything into a great ice cream flavor if your do it right.
