It’s simple. Blend one packet of mix with 1 ½ cups of warm half & half (or any nondairy alternative). Best to use half & half for the creamiest ice cream! Allow this mixture to rest at room temperature for 30 minutes. Freeze for 3- 6 hours in an airtight container, then allow to soften for just 5 minutes. Enjoy!
Magic! Just kidding. We’ve worked with a team of food scientists to develop a really unique mix of dry milk, along with gums and salts. When combined with milk, water, or any nondairy milk and then frozen, these ingredients activate and make ice cream!. Yes as simple as that!
Peruse our sample recipes for inspiration, or visit our “Make Your Own Flavor” page to bring your idea to life. We’ll walk you through the process step-by-step to ensure your proportions, timing, etc. will get you the BEST version of your unique flavor idea.

Your signature-flavor ice cream dessert will be ready to eat in just a few hours after you create it. Once you have blended your milk, ice cream mix, and favorite ingredients for 1-2 minutes, you’ll need to let your mixture sit for half an hour at room temperature. Then, it should freeze for anywhere from three to six hours. Once frozen, your ice cream should sit on your countertop for five to seven minutes, which will make it easy to scoop.
You can use both dairy and nondairy milk to make ice cream with our DIY ice cream mix. For instance, try whole milk, pea milk, rice milk, or even oat milk. Non Dairy types of milk produce ice cream versions that are slightly icier. For the creamiest, smoothest, most luxurious texture of ice cream, use 1 1/2 cups of half-and-half. (Please note that our ice cream mix is not dairy free.)
Yep -- you can use any nondairy milk alternative with HIJINX ice cream mix. For a lower-cal version, you can even use water!
Yes, you can use water in place of milk. However, with water, your product’s texture will be closer to that of a snow cone, Italian ice, sorbet, or sherbet.
Yes -- Hijinx ice cream mix is peanut-safe.
Absolutely! We encourage it. With HIJINX ice cream mix, you can ‘ice creamify’ anything! If you don’t know where to start, we suggest using one of our recipes, and switching out one or two of the ingredients. For example, in our Nutella Banana recipe, try swapping out the Nutella for the same amount of peanut butter!
Using alcohol, fruit, confections/candies, spices, syrups, sauces, cheese, powdered flavors, proteins, vegetables, nuts, coffee, tea....pretty much any ingredient that has a distinct flavor can simply be blended or stirred in with Hijinx (If it's chunky, stir it in. Otherwise, blend). Just remember to concentrate the flavors a bit before adding to Hijinx (you'd be surprised by how many oranges it takes to get a strong-enough orange flavor). Please refer to our best practices and ingredient guidelines here https://hijinxicecream.com/blogs/recipes/make-your-own-flavor to make the most delicious, and decadent ice cream using Hijinx

Nope. That’s the beauty of it! A blender is all you need to stretch your flavor imagination with Hijinx. No ice cream maker is needed.

At Hijinx, we offer free shipping to the contiguous United States. (There is a fee for shipping to Hawaii or Alaska.)
Free shipping for all products everywhere, except Alaska and Hawaii. It’s just too expensive to ship to Alaska and Hawaii and we are not able to afford it without passing on some of the shipping cost back to the customer.
Store your ice cream in a container that is freezer safe and comes with a solid, airtight lid. Make sure that your container is sealed properly so that no moisture enters it.
