What you need:

  1. Non-dairy ice cream
  2. Grated coconut
  3. Oreo cookies


  1. Scoop your favourite non-dairy ice cream into a ball (it can be any flavour!)
  2. Roll the ice cream in some coconut. Use your hands, it’s not even THAT messy! 😜
  3. Place it on a cookie sheet, and freeze for 10-30 minutes.

If you’re not a fan of coconut, you can always opt for crushed Oreo cookies instead of grated coconut! But of course, instead of having a beautiful white snowball, you’ll end up with a dirty snowball ⛄
