What is snow cream made of?

As you see in this recipe, the easiest recipe for snow cream simply calls for two ingredients: clean snow and sweetened condensed milk. Some recipes call for a milk and sugar mixture.

The concept of snow cream is not to make ice cream out of snow. The finished “product” will not be as creamy as ice cream. Instead, think of snow cream as more of a creamy snow cone. It’s meant to be quick, easy, and lots of fun.

Is Snow Cream a southern thing?

Yes! Snow Cream is a Southern tradition that celebrates the first snowfall of winter by gathering the falling snow in a bowl to make the sweet treat.

What flavor is snow cream?

Snow cream is meant to be made quickly and without a lot of fuss, so the flavor is usually a vanilla. But you could always add flavors by mixing in any of the following:

– flavor extract
– flavored syrup (maple, strawberry, chocolate, etc)
– essential oils (orange, lemon, lime, etc…)
– Jell-O powdered mix
– cocoa powder
