How To Make Ice Cream With A Ninja Blender
There are a variety of ways on how to make ice cream with a Ninja blender, all depending on the flavor you’re looking for. A couple processes will use pudding as the base while most others, frozen fruit. Here we have listed a number of ice cream flavors to try, using your Ninja blender.
We are making the following recipes using the Ninja Profesional Blender (Model # NJ600) which we also reviewed here.
Let’s get into those recipes! We’ll start off with a basic vanilla. Why? Because it’s basic and you can use it as a base for any other goodies you’d like to add to it now, or the next time you get around to making some.
What’s nice about vanilla is you can add things like chocolate chips or candy bars or cookies. Your imagination is your only limitation! After making the vanilla ice cream, add your favorite mix-in and give it a couple of pulses. You’re done!
Vanilla Ice Cream Recipe With A Ninja Blender:
1 package (3.4 ounces) vanilla instant pudding mix
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
In a large mixing bowl, pour 2 cups of whole milk and vanilla pudding mix. Lightly whisk the mixture using a wire whisk until it’s dissolved completely, approximately 1 minute. Be sure not overmix or the mixture will thicken making it uneasy to pour. Pour the mixture into two standard size ice cube trays, equally distributing between the two.Place the ice cube trays in the freezer and freeze for at least eight hours or overnight.
In a Ninja® 56-ounce food-processing bowl fitted with the standard blade attachment, place all the frozen vanilla ice cubes. Add the remaining 1/2 cup plus the 2 tablespoons of whole milk and the vanilla extract. Using the crush function, process for approximately 35 seconds.
Remove the lid, carefully remove the blades, and wala! Eat up!
