Code Name: Mama - Dairy Free Snow Ice Cream Recipes

We love our snow ice cream, but we never get enough opportunities to eat it. Before we went dairy free, I’d compiled these snow ice cream recipes. Now, though, we are a dairy free family, so we needed to find some alternatives. Several of the recipes below are based off of my previous post, I’ve just swapped the cow milk for a different milk.

Let me know which is your favorite!

For each recipe, simply stir the ingredients together with approximately one gallon of snow in your favorite large mixing bowl.

Vanilla Coconut Milk Snow Ice Cream

*Chill a can of coconut milk, skim off the thick cream.
*1 tsp vanilla
*2 Tbsp sugar (or to taste)
*Stir the ingredients together with approximately one gallon of snow in a large mixing bowl
*Add coconut milk until desired consistency is reached

    I usually just put mint syrup in the snow and eat it that way. It’s a surprise to see such recipes, though, my parents hate it when I eat snow, they say it’s probably full of the chemicals that there is in the rain, and that I shouldn’t do it. Do you know of any studies about that ?

    Yum! These are great! My friend’s son is allergic to milk..I’ll have to sent her this recipe! With the kids I work with, we usually just pour juice on the snow and eat it like that. I like this idea, though! Also, during the summer, you can use this recipe for a similar effect:
    1 cup any milk or milk substitute
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    2 tablespoons sugar
    Combine ingredients in a small bag. Then, fill a gallon bag with ice and salt(I like Kosher salt, but normal salt will work as well). Place the smaller bag(VERY well sealed!!) into the larger(also well sealed!). Then, wrap the bags in a towel and shake, shake, shake! You can have your kiddos do the shaking, but it is hard work!! It’s like a workout, haha. Usually my kiddos will shake it for about 30 seconds, but then it’s delegated to me. After about 3 minuets, it will have an ice cream like consistency, and can be eaten. Remove the smaller bag from the larger-you may want to rinse it carefully or wipe the opening, because there will be salt all over it, and salty ice cream is not very tasty XP I speak from experience, haha.
    This is nice because it can be done in the summer, as well! You may have already seen this recipe before, though-I think it’s been floating around online for a while. Thanks for the fun recipes!
