This is the funniest thing I've ever read.

basic recipe

1 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar
scant 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
large bowl of snow (about 3 quarts)
Blend milk, sugar and vanilla. Stir in enough snow to make snow cream to an ice cream consistency.
if you want heavier flavor substitute milk with cream milk or make it chocolate with Nestle Quik

there is more advance on google but people generally have the above contents

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, as an emergency measure, if no other water is available, snow can be melted for water. Bringing water to a rolling boil for one minute will kill most microorganisms or parasites that may be present but won’t remove chemical pollutants sometimes found in snow.

Of course, you can't make snow cream if you melt the snow.

Bon apetit!

Um, you know that the same snow that falls in your yard also falls into the resivoir that your water comes from? Or, melts and runs into the ground where your well is? So you're gonna be drinking it anyways Might as well have a little fun!


Just a little caution about filling tubs with water-if you have small children, make sure they can't get in the bathroom and fall in. A child can drown in even a small amount of water. Please be careful
