Tips for making Ninja Creami Peanut Butter Banana Ice cream (Low Sugar)
Stevia is a sugar substitute that is natural, has zero calories, and comes from the stevia leaf from the stevia rebaudiana plant which is found in Brazil and Paraguay. Stevia is much sweeter than sugar.
Banana extract provides a stronger and more concentrated flavor than bananas alone. Banana extract is commonly found in most grocery stores, specialty food stores, and online on Amazon. It's inexpensive and shelf-stable which means you can have easily have banana flavors even if you don't have any fresh bananas.
Coconut cream comes in cans or squeeze bottles. Coconut cream is made from coconut milk and is made by chilling coconut milk. Once chilled, the coconut milk separates into a thinner liquid at the bottom and a thick cream at the top. The cream at the top is what you get when you buy the coconut cream and it will taste like coconut based on how much you add to the recipe. There are sweetened and unsweetened options available.
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.

Ingredient substitutions and tips for making Ninja Creami Peanut Butter Banana Ice cream (Low Sugar):
The full ingredient list is found at the bottom of the post in the recipe card.
Cream Cheese- Cream cheese was used for this recipe but if you don't have cream cheese you can use greek yogurt or mascarpone cheese. Taste and texture may vary based on substitutions made.
Cocoa Powder- Cocoa powder is recommended for this recipe. Hot chocolate mix can be used but the cocoa flavor will not be as strong.
Stevia- Any sugar or sugar substitute can be used.
Raw Agave Nectar- Honey, maple syrup, and molasses are good substitutes for agave nectar.
Banana Extract- Banana liquor can be used instead of extract.
Coconut Cream- Coconut milk can be used but may produce a final product that is less creamy.
Almond Milk- Any milk or non-dairy milk can be used.
Peanut Butter- Almond butter, cashew butter, or any nut butter can be used.
Banana- Bananas add to the creaminess and the flavor of the recipe. It's not recommended to substitute anything for the bananas.
Directions for making Ninja Creami Peanut Butter Banana Ice cream (Low Sugar):

4. After 24 hours, remove the pint from the freezer.
