Snow Day Ice Cream.

Did you survive the Snowpocalypse?

Here in Chicago, we witnessed one of the biggest storms in our history.  We had a record breaking 21 inches of snow in the city proper, which created massive snow drifts upwards of 6 feet in my neighborhood.  Winds reached up to 70 miles per hour.  Hundreds of people were stranded on Lake Shore Drive for upwards of 12 hours.  With such a large amount of snow, it’s going to take a while to get back to some sort of normalcy.

So today is day 3 of being snowed in.  The snow has stopped but it’s been bitter cold and our household has started to go stir crazy.  I bundled up the Fruitaholic and took him outside to try to get some pictures but he was having none of it.  He took me on a short walk down the block (I think he was headed towards the park?) and we collected some snow from our yard and brought it back to the warmth inside to make a snow day treat using only 2 ingredients.  YUM!

Snow Day Ice Cream – inspired by Kate’s Recipe Box

  • 1 Large Bowl of Fresh Snow
  • 1/2 Can Sweetened Condensed Milk

Pour sweetened condensed milk into a large bowl.  Add snow gradually until it reaches a creamy consistency.  Serve immediately.

  1. Our last few storms here have been ice instead of snow. It’s disappointing! I wanted to experiment with different snow ice cream flavors.

    • We’re supposed to get more snow this weekend (and on top of 21 inches, I don’t know where it’s going to go!). I’m hoping to try your exact recipe this time.

  2. Someone posted on facebook about this as well and that was my first time ever hearing about Snow Day Ice Cream! I grew up and still live in New England and have seriously been missing out! I am sure my kids would love this. :)
