Recipe Box: Toasted Coconut Snow Ice Cream

A Yummy Treat to Celebrate Winter

By Heather Bauer January 21, 2019

Snow Ice Cream has been all over the blogosphere this winter, but I wanted to change it up a bit and make toasted coconut snow ice cream! YUM! The perfect treat on a snowy afternoon!

The recipe is simpler than you would imagine. Enjoy!

Toasted Snow Ice Cream

  • 1 can coconut milk
  • ¼ cup agave nectar 
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 8 cups of clean snow*
  • ¼ cup sweetened coconut flakes
Spread the coconut flakes on a cookie sheet and toast in the oven at 350℉ for 5-10 minutes. Check on these frequently so they don't burn!



In a medium bowl, mix together the coconut milk, agave, vanilla, and salt. Set this bowl in the freezer to chill.

Go outside and collect your snow! Make sure it's clean!



Take the liquid ingredients out of the freezer and spoon in the snow a cup at a time until it reaches your desired consistency.

Scoop snow mixture into bowls and top with toasted coconut (or sprinkles... or both!).

* Eat snow at your own risk. If you're concerned about the quality of your snow, try shaved ice instead.
