Snow is a novelty here in Texas. We were supposed to get a “light dusting” yesterday, and ended up waking up to much more than that. Andrew was so excited to see it — he kept watching it fall out the window. As a special treat, I wanted to introduce him to one of the best parts of a snow day — getting to make Snow Ice Cream. But when you have a lactose intolerant toddler, you’ve got to roll with the punches.
This recipe for Snow Ice Cream uses Silk Soy Milk to flavor the snow, which makes it perfect for the lactose intolerant. So the next time you have a snow day, go grab some handfuls and make a yummy treat!
Snow Ice Cream with Silk Soy Milk
8 cups fresh snow
1 cup Very Vanilla Silk Soy Milk*
1/3 cup sugar
Pinch of salt
*You can substitute whole milk for the soy milk and add 1 tsp vanilla extract for flavoring.
Scoop out the snow into a large bowl.
In a smaller bowl, mix together the milk, sugar and salt, and pour the mixture over the snow. Stir together. The mixture should be light and fluffy — not runny or dense.
Scoop it into bowls and serve immediately.
Add some sprinkles on top for a festive, fun look.
What’s your favorite thing about a Snow Day?

I’m the lactose intolerant one in our house, so this is perfect! I’m pinning it to try next time we get snow.
I wish I’d thought to make ice cream out of the snow…how fun!

Visiting via SITS. Thanks for sharing this! I feel like the last person to know of snow ice cream and crazy since I grew up with a lot more snow. Expecting a nice snowfall tomorrow so I will have to give this a try. Have a great week! 🙂
I’m also lactose intolerant and so are both of my boys now young men. They live out in Phoenix and I live in Illinois. We just got snow, so I”m going to try this. Love the idea!
