We primarily concern ourselves with healthy eating. But that doesn’t mean we are above a nice treat every once in a while. Which is why we’ve been having a lot of fun discovering deliciously good Ninja CREAMi recipes.
About the Ninja CREAMi
The Ninja CREAMi makes surprisingly great frozen treats. And it isn’t limited to just ice cream. You can use the Ninja CREAMi to create mixed desserts like Dairy Queen’s famous Blizzards.
To make a frozen dessert with the CREAMi, you first have to mix your recipe and freeze it in the pint-sized jars that come with the CREAMi. Pro Tip: Buy extra jars.
You then freeze the filled containers for the recommended 24-hours. After that, insert them into the CREAMi device for mixing.

Top X Ninja CREAMi Recipes
Ninja CREAMi Banana Pudding Ice Cream
What’s better than banana pudding? Banana pudding ice cream, of course! This recipe uses cream cheese, heavy cream, and a banana in the ice cream base. Then it gets topped off with Nilla Wafers in the mix-in phase.
There are several ingredients in this recipe which can be adjusted or removed, depending upon your tastes.
Ninja CREAMi Banana Pudding Ice Cream
Looks delicious! But would you believe this recipe calls for Fairlife protein shake and only has 150 calories.
Enjoy this delicious and healthy treat!
Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
Mint chocolate chips or mint chocolate chunks? This recipe lets you decide. Throw in some peppermint extract and green food coloring and you’ve got yourself a delicious mix for mint chocolate chip ice cream.
Chunky Monkey Copycat Ice Cream
Can you tell I favor desserts with bananas? Bananas and walnuts may not be your thing. But if they are, add this recipe to your list.
It may not be a sweet enough treat without adding the optional maple syrup. I went ahead and tried it with the maple syrup and found it just right.
Cookies & Cream
Could a list of Ninja CREAMi recipes be complete without a cookies & cream recipe?
This all-time favorite isn’t exactly a Dairy Queen copycat, but it’s delicious in its own right!
Coffee Ice Cream
I love coffee flavored anything! This Ninja CREAMI recipe for coffee-flavored ice cream doesn’t disappoint.
Instant coffee granules gives this recipe a kick. Monk fruit sweetener and agave nectar makes it slightly more healthy than refined sugar.
Chocolate Ice Cream
2nd only to vanilla ice cream in popularity, chocolate ice cream is a favorite for many people. Don’t make just one pint of this recipe because you’ll be wanting more! If any recipe in this list shows that the Ninja CREAMi can, in fact, make creamy-textured ice cream, this is it!
Butter Pecan Gelato
Butter flavor extract is vital to this recipe if you don’t want to use the less-healthy option of using actual butter. With this recipe, you’ll actually process the recipe using the gelato setting before going back and using the mix-in feature to spin the pecans into the gelato.
Blueberry Lemon Sorbet
Is it a sorbet? Or is it an ice cream? Either way, lemonade, blueberry, cream cheese, and milk come together for an explosion of cold, delicious, refreshing flavor!
Strawberry Banana Protein Smoothie Bowl
Fresh, ripe banana and fresh strawberries form the basis of this delicious smoothie bowl. This recipe from the Ninja Test Kitchen also calls for vanilla protein powder, agave nectar, pineapple juice, and milk. Once the smoothie has been processed, you can optionally add fresh fruit and a granola topping.
From our very own Christen Price. Christen demonstrates how to use the CREAMi to process a 1-ingredient strawberry sorbet. It doesn’t get any easier than this. She has also made pineapple and lemon sorbets which are both delicious.
