What you’ll need for a normal batch (serves 6):

  • 13 ounces canned evaporated milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 ¾ cups sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 8 cups (more or less) clean snow

What you’ll need for a smaller batch (serves 3):

  • 5 ounces canned evaporated milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 4 cups (more or less) clean snow
  • Kitchen tools you’ll need:
  • 2 large mixing bowls
  • Large spoon


In a large mixing bowl, combine evaporated milk, vanilla extract, sugar and salt. Mix until all ingredients are well-blended.

Take one of your large mixing bowls and fill it with fresh, clean snow. Feel free to get more than you think you’ll need. It’s just frozen water, after all.

Slowly combine snow with liquid mixture. Add and mix in a cup or spoonful at a time until you reach desired consistency.

Split into individual bowls (or just eat it all by yourself) and enjoy!
