Check out my review of the new Ninja Creami! I received this product at no cost from Ninja Kitchen. but all of the opinions below are my own and not that of Ninja Kitchen.
Who else is super excited to see some new Ninja products coming out?! When Ninja reached out to me and asked me to test out their newest product, I was SO EXCITED!! Since I was a tester for the product, I've had several months to try it out and have made a ton of recipes in the new Ninja Creami!
Ninja Creami FAQs
The Ninja Creami is a frozen treat maker. It has a blade that moves up and down in the middle of the pint of frozen treat. The different processes allow the blade to either "blend" the ingredients all together or "fold" them together. It is not a blender. I repeat...it is not a blender! Instead of evenly blending all ingredients like a blender, the Ninja Creami does one of two things. First, you can add all ingredients to the Ninja Creami and process it. Doing so will evenly incorporate all ingredients together, similar to a blender. For example, if you put chocolate chips into the mixture and process it, the chocolate chips will all be cut up into very small pieces and mixed throughout. But, if you want to have ice cream with whole chocolate chips, you would instead add them during the mix-in process. During this process, the mix-ins get "folded" into the base. If you were to blend everything together, you would not end up with whole chocolate chips at the end.
To make a frozen treat in the Ninja Creami, you first create your base. Once you have created a base, you will pour it into one of the pint containers that come with the machine. Freeze the base for 24 hours. Once fully frozen, remove from the freezer and place in the Ninja Creami, choose the process that you want. The Ninja Creami will mix the base together for about a minute or so. Now, the base is creamy and no longer frozen solid. Next, add in your mix-ins and choose the mix-ins process. The Ninja Creami will slowly mix the mix-ins into the frozen treat without changing the size or texture of the mix.
The Ninja Creami has 6 process settings. Ice Cream, Gelato, Sorbet, Lite Ice Cream, Smoothie Bowls, and Milkshakes. Each process is a little bit different and provides a different result.
To make a frozen treat in the Ninja Creami, it takes about 5 minutes of prep time, 24 hours of freezing time, and about 5 minutes of process/mix-in time.
The Ninja Creami makes 1-pint containers of frozen treats. The machine comes standard with 3 pint containers. You can buy additional pint containers from Ninja.
-In a regular ice cream maker, you can only make one flavor of ice cream at a time. The Ninja Creami allows you to make as many flavors as you would like since you will be making the base separately and freezing it in pint containers. When you are ready to eat the frozen treat, just mix it and add in your mix-ins.
-The Ninja Creami doesn't just make it ice cream. See above.
-The Ninja Creami takes a full 24 hours to freeze before mixing and eating, whereas some ice cream makes take substantially less time to make the ice cream.
-A regular ice cream maker does not have the ability to fully incorporate ingredients together. The Ninja Creami has a blade in it that makes this possible.
-The Ninja Creami allows you to remix leftover frozen treats when you are ready to eat them later.
