Check out Serena’s recipe for Ninja Creami Frozen Hot Chocolate Ice Cream
The cozy taste of hot cocoa in a frozen treat! This came out perfect for me on the first spin. I used vanilla-flavored creamer. Next time I think I will use peppermint mocha though!
Tips for making Ninja Creami Frozen Hot Chocolate Ice Cream
If you have made ice cream and it just isn’t quite as creami as you would like, or if it started to melt and then was refrozen, you can very easily get it super creami again 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 ice cream should be nice and creamy again. ***If using the re-spin function on previously frozen and melted ice cream, be sure to smooth out the top so that the ice cream is level and evenly distributed in the pint.
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.
Usually, if your ice cream/sorbet 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.
Yes! You can! You can add them at the very end as a topping or you can add them as mix-ins after you have processed the ice cream. It’s not recommended to add them before freezing as the mixture will still be a little warm and they will melt.
