Snow Cream is Southern Ice Cream at Big Mill B&B

When it snows in the south, we make Snow Cream. This rare delicacy tastes like the best ice cream you ever had. A wintertime treat at Big Mill B&B in Williamston.

Big Mill Bed & Breakfast


3-5 cups

Prep Time:

5 minutes

Cook Time:

0 minutes


•  1/2-3/4 cup heavy cream
•  4 tbsp sugar
•  1 tsp vanilla
•  1 egg (optional)
•  6-8 cups snow (light & clean)


  1. Cream together the cream, sugar and vanilla.

  2. Some folks add a raw egg, but I do not. If you want the egg, add it now.

  3. Using a flexible utensil like a rubber spatula, add the snow a little at a time to the cream mixture until it is the consistency of ice cream.

Recipe Notes:

You must eat this immediately because it will melt! Or, store in the freezer for several months.
