Wendy's Snow Cream

Make this nectar in a jar so you can make just small batches of snow cream at a time — a big (24-ounce) mason jar is ideal. Keep the jar out in the snow until you need another cup. Exact measurements are not important, but the measurements listed here will help you get started.


  • 1 can (14-ounce) of condensed milk
  • 1 can (12-ounce) of evaporated milk or a pint of Half & Half
  • Vanilla extract (to taste)
  • Sugar (to taste)


  1. Gather bowl of fluffy snow (icy snow won't do).

  2. Pour condensed milk into the big jar along with a can of evaporated milk or equal amount (about 1½ cups) of Half & Half.

  3. Add in a capful of vanilla (or more to taste). Add a little sugar (maybe two tablespoons to start, then taste). Put the lid on and shake, shake, shake!

  4. Put a few scoops of snow into a bowl or cup. Pour a little of the cream at a time over fluffy snow.Add more cream and stir until it is as thick or thin as you like it. I like mine custardy and thick enough to eat with a spoon. But it's just as dang good if thinner and sippable.

  5. Optional: Drizzle with chocolate syrup or top with strawberries, bananas or your favorite fruit for a snow cream sundae!

  • I remember eating this as a child and also making it for my children.My grandmother made it and froze it for me after my family moved to Florida. I would pick fresh strawberries from her garden and eat them with snow cream on my summer vacations. A very sweet memory.
