When life hands you lemons — what should you do? Make lemonade. Well, that’s what we did this week. We made some Snowman Snow Ice Cream! A blizzard hit on Monday and we were stuck inside for four days while we waited for the storm to end, and for daddy to shovel the driveway. It wasn’t an easy task to clear our driveway with up to three foot high snow drifts. Needless to say, we had plenty of snow for our Snowman Snow Ice Cream!
This recipe is really easy. I used my NutriBullet blender to whip up the sweet sauce to add to our snow. I wouldn’t recommend blending the snow because it will make the snow too soft, but a blender is great for whipping up the other ingredients.
Ingredients for Snowman Snow Ice Cream Recipe
- 3 Tablespoons Sweetened Condensed Milk
- 2 Tablespoons Granulated Sugar
- 5 Frozen ice cubes of Whole Milk (you could also use 1/2 Cup Whole Milk from the fridge)
- 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 4-6 Cups of Fresh, Clean Snow
- The candy eyes, candy red bow, and black jelly bean(s) all come from this Wilton 2104-0036 Cupcake Decorating Kit.
- The snowman’s nose is made from a petite carrot.
- The snowman’s hat is made of black construction paper (not edible).
Directions for Snowman Snow Ice Cream Recipe
- Add everything but the snow to a blender and mix for 30-60 seconds – this creates the sweet sauce. It will be slushy if you froze the whole milk into cubes before you added the milk to the blender.
- Use a spoon to gently mix the snow in with the sweet sauce and use an ice cream scoop to serve.
- Add your snowman decorations to create a fun and memorable Snow Ice Cream dessert for your family!

Did the kids enjoy the Snowman Snow Ice Cream?
I asked the boys to think about how they would eat the snowman before I let them start. I wanted them to remove the hat first – which they did! Both boys wanted to eat the candy eyes – so those disappeared first. We all enjoyed eating our Snowman Snow Ice Cream. I hope this easy recipe inspires you to make your own Snowman Snow Ice Cream the next time you get fresh snowfall.
