Check out Luna's recipe for Ninja Creami Banana Chocolate Chip Lite Ice Cream
This is a light and fresh ice cream that everyone is sure to love! The base is made up of mostly bananas....simply bananas. The fresh fruit helps to add to the flavor and the texture of this refreshing ice cream!
Fresh bananas are recommended for this recipe as the instructions say to mash up the bananas before adding them to the pint container. If frozen bananas are used, you will need to thaw them first so that they can be mashed up before freezing the pint.

Tips for making Ninja Creami Banana Chocolate Chip Lite Ice Cream
It depends. Both can be used based on when you are adding the fruit and the amount of fruit that is being used. Fresh fruit mixes into the ice cream really well whether it is added to the mixture before or after freezing. Frozen fruit tends to have more flavor since it is picked and frozen at the peak of ripeness. Frozen fruit can be added before the mixture is frozen in the pint container, but you have to add liquid to fill in the gaps between the frozen pieces of fruit. I don't recommend adding frozen fruit as mix-ins at the end because the fruit pieces will be frozen solid and will not break up during the mix-in process. The frozen fruit will not mix in well and will be harder to eat.
Usually, if your ice cream comes out dry or crumbly it's due to one of the following reasons:
*Your freezer is too cold. Try to adjust your freezer to be a little warmer or let your ice cream sit on the counter for 5-10 minutes before processing it.
*Your recipe does not have enough fat in it. Try adding in a little bit of a higher fat dairy product to your recipe next time.
*Your recipe may not have enough sugar in it. The less sugar in the recipe, the icier and crumblier the ice cream will be. Regular sugar, honey, or corn syrup can be used to increase the sugar content if desired.
It depends. If you are keeping the ice cream in the Ninja pint container with the lid sealed tightly and are freezing it in a cold freezer (between 9 degrees F and -7 degrees F), your ice cream will keep for several weeks, even months. However, if you transfer your ice cream to another container or freeze it in a freezer that is not quite as cold (or that is accessed a lot/door opened and closed often), the lifetime of your ice cream will decrease greatly to just a few days and you will likely end up with freezer-burned ice cream.
If you have made ice cream and it just isn’t quite as creami as you would like, you can very easily get it super creami by using the re-spin function on the Ninja Creami. Simply place the pint into the outer bowl and snap it into place. Choose the RE-SPIN function. Once the cycle completes, remove the pint and enjoy! Your gelato should be nice and creamy again. ***Use re-spin on already spun ice cream. If the ice cream has been spun and then frozen again, do not use re-spin, Instead, use the original process (ice cream, gelato, etc.)
Yes, you sure can. Feel free to add in your favorite mix-ins. Walnuts, caramel, or peanut butter would all be great additions to this banana ice cream!
