Hijinx Ice Cream is a homemade ice cream powder. It is very unique because it allows you to create your own blends and flavors of ice cream at home!
A packet of Hijinx Ice Cream has the mixture you can add in a blender with your favorite ingredients and milk, and blend until smooth. Scoop the ice cream into a bowl and enjoy it. One packet of this ice cream mix yields a pint of ice cream.
No ice cream maker is required to blend your custom flavored ice cream. Also, there is no limitation on the ingredients you add to the blender. You can add anything from marshmallows and coconut curry to rum and cereal!
Make Your Own Flavor
The popularity of Hijinx Ice Cream is the result of their ‘Make Your Own Flavor’ initiative.
To blend a ‘make your own flavor’ ice cream, you need a pack of Hijinx Ice Cream mix, half & half, and your favorite ingredients. The amount of half & half depends on the additional flavoring and its consistency (if it’s liquid).
The method to blend these ingredients is straightforward. First, you warm the half & half but do not boil it. Warming the milk makes the powder mix easily.
Blend it with the Hijinx Ice Cream mix and additional flavoring of your choice. Let it rest for 30 minutes before transferring the mixture to a freezer-safe container. It will freeze in about 3 to 6 hours.
The Hijinx Ice Cream website also features suggested amounts for popular ingredient combinations.
Most people choose alcohol, wine, beer, fruit, candy, spices, chips, and nuts. Some are more curios, so they make special blends with more than one extra ingredient.

Green Fairy Absinthe

A blend of caramel, cocoa, and cinnamon makes up the Faire Noir elixir that you can top with sprinkles of waffle.

Here Lies Earl Grey
