Tips for making Ninja Creami Low Calorie Chocolate Cheesecake Ice Cream
Xanthan gum is a thickening agent and stabilizer. Per Wikipedia: It can be produced from simple sugars using a fermentation process, and derives its name from the species of bacteria used, Xanthomonas campestris.
Basically, when added to a Ninja Creami recipe, it helps make the frozen treat thick and creamy.
Liquid saccharine is a sugar substitute/artificial sweetener. It can be added to Ninja Creami frozen treats instead of sugar to make a sweet but low or no sugar treat. Some examples are sweet and low and EZ Sweetz.
You can add vanilla essence or instant coffee granules for an extra zing.
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.
To help resolve this issue, after processing, add 1 tablespoon of dairy and then reprocess.
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.
