Happy Trails with Sweet Actions’ Trail Mix Ice Cream


Sam and Chia, co-owners of “Sweet Action” ice cream in Denver, blaze a new delicious trail with this sweet and salty ice cream flavor.

Even rough and tumble cowboys need to get in touch with their sweet side, and no one understands this better than our friends out West at Sweet Action Ice Cream.  Chia Basinger and Sam Kopicko might not be traditional gun-slingin’, cattle ropin’ cowboys, but they’re definitely pioneering new frontiers in the ice cream biz. Since they opened Sweet Action in Denver, they’ve served up over five hundred fearless flavors, including more savory ones like Colorado Sweet Corn and Sour Cream and Chive. Sound risky? Well that’s because it is, but the flavors also happen to be insanely, out-of-this-world delicious.

Lucky for us (and for you, since we can’t keep a secret), we managed to wrangle the recipe of one of our favorite flavors — Trail Mix Ice Cream. Wondrously cold and creamy with just a hint of vanilla flavor, the ice cream base makes a sweet and subtle backdrop for all the yummy trail mix add-ins. Next comes the crunch factor. Studded with almonds, peanuts, chocolate chips, rich peanut butter cups, colorful M&Ms and chewy raisins, every icy bite explodes with sweet and salty crunchiness. And hey, if you don’t own an ice cream maker and don’t think you’ll be flying out to Denver any time soon, no worries. Try tossing a handful of your favorite trail or nut mix on top of your favorite vanilla ice cream. You’ll be glad you did.

As much as we love this recipe, the best take away from Sweet Action is their commitment to taking chances with their ingredients and recipes.  Don’t be afraid to explore new flavors and culinary frontiers, because (in the words of one very wise cowboy), “It’s the way you ride the trail that counts.” Thanks, Roy Rogers. And happy trails, foodies!

Make sure you watch Unique Sweets tonight at 10:30pm ET to see Sweet Action in action and all the epic sweets of the wild, wild West.
