Snow Cream, also known as Snowflake Ice Cream, has been all over social media websites like Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. If you search #snowcream on Instagram or Twitter, you’re bound to find it.

What is Snow Cream?

Snow Cream is a Japanese-inspired ice cream typically made with coconut flakes or rice crisps. It makes for an insanely light and fluffy ice cream that tastes like you’ve had a taste of heaven in every bite. And it is so easy to make a batch of yours right in your kitchen.

How To Prepare Snow Cream

Like every other recipe, you will need a few ingredients and follow a few steps to make your batch of snow cream.

What are the main ingredients in this heavenly dessert?

  • 1/3 cup coconut flakes or rice crisp cereal
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 2/3 cup condensed milk (or regular milk)
  • 1/3 cup half and half cream (optional)

In the original recipe, a combination of coconut cream and condensed milk is used, but you may also opt to use coconut ice cream instead. The result is a gooey yet light and fluffy ice cream that looks just like snow.


1. Heat the milk in a saucepan over low heat, constantly stirring not to burn. When it’s boiling, add in the condensed milk and continue stirring until the mixture has boiled for five minutes.

2. Remove from heat, add the coconut flakes, and mix everything thoroughly. Transfer to a freezer and cover it with aluminum foil or plastic wrap. Don’t put on the lid just yet. Please place it in the freezer for an hour or until it’s hardened.

3. Once it has completely frozen and hardened, remove from the freezer, uncover the ice cream, and spoon out a generous amount. Top with more rice flakes for extra crunch and sugar if desired.

4. And that’s how you can make your batch of Snow Cream!
You can now try it out and show the world how amazing it is.

Tips For Making The Best Snow Cream Ever

While the above procedure will get the job done, you also need to consider a few things to ensure that your ice cream will come out nice and fluffy.
These include:

1. First, choose the right ingredients.

It is best to use canned cream instead of milk since you will not boil it for so long, producing more creamy results. Also, make sure you use sweetened condensed milk rather than evaporated milk because condensed milk has more sugar content.

2. While the milk is boiling, you will want to keep stirring

If you don’t stir the milk well enough, there’s a chance it will stick to the pot. Make sure to use low heat and often stir until it boils.

4. If your mixture still doesn’t look like ice cream after a few minutes, add a small amount of cream

It will help make it even creamier. Also, if your mixture looks too icy smooth after a few minutes, add some condensed milk to make it more fluffy or stir until creamy again.

5. For more traditional-tasting snow cream, use coconut ice cream and milk.

Using coconut ice cream and milk instead of condensed milk and milk will provide a more distinct traditional flavor to the cream.

6. You can use your own choice of sweeteners to make the ice cream taste sweeter.

If you don’t care too much about the sweetness but want to add more crunch, then be sure not to add too much sugar because you will notice that the ice cream will become too icy and complicated when you mix in too much sugar.

7. Snow cream is best to be eaten in the winter season.

You don’t have to worry about using it up quickly.

8. Remember that snow cream needs to be put in the freezer for at least two hours before eating.

It must be wholly hardened before being served and consumed, and the only way to harden it is by freezing.

How To Eat Snow Cream

Snow Cream is best served in a bowl when it’s completely frozen so that you can dig into it like a scoop of ice cream.

Add toppings such as chocolate chips and marshmallows to make it into a completely different dessert, or eat it out of the container for something more fun.

You may also eat snow cream with a spoon or fork, but try to dig as deep as you can to get some delicious scoops.

There’s no better way to enjoy this ice cream than by sharing it with your family and friends.
