How To Turn Snow Into Ice Cream

Make Orange Dreamsicle Ice Cream using snow!

I’ve lived in the upper midwest my whole life, but it wasn’t until this year that I heard of snow cream. Snow cream! Ice cream made out of snow! My children were beyond excited when we gathered the snow and turned it into delicious orange dreamsicle ice cream. Now we look forward to each and every snowfall.

Orange Dreamsicle Ice Cream Recipe (made from snow!)

Snow cream is just a simple mixture of fresh snow, sweetened condensed milk, and flavors of your choice. This version is based on an orange dreamsicle, but the possibilities are endless. Coffee, vanilla beans, other juices, and chocolate sauce can all be flavors. Have fun experimenting this winter!
