What I used to make this recipe

This recipe was developed for the Ninja CREAMi machine. It could work in other ice cream makers, but with some modifications. Follow your machine’s instructions.

Ingredients & Swaps

These are the ingredients I used to make my batch of mint ice cream in the Ninja CREAMi, along with some suggestions for alternates.

  • Cream cheese – feel free to leave out
  • Monk fruit sweetener – or your sweetener of choice
  • Raw agave nectar – OPTIONAL, but I often use it to add a bit more sugary/vanilla flavor to my ice cream recipes
  • Mint extract Be sure to use a good quality mint extract (this is my favorite), since it can heavily influence the flavor of your ice cream. Many national and store brands have a noticeable alcohol and/or chemical flavor to them. Find one with a natural mint flavor, preferably one that is organic.
  • Heavy cream – also try half-n-half, coconut cream or coconut milk, or a heavy whipping cream alternative
  • Almond milk – also try another plant-based milk, or even cow milk
  • Green food coloring – OPTIONAL – If using food coloring, start with just a little bit. Add more until you achieve the color intensity you like.
  • Low carb chocolate chips – also cacao nibs or regular chocolate pieces

Step 2 Pour the mixture into a Ninja CREAMi pint and freeze for 24 hours.

Step 3 Process on LITE ICE CREAM.

Step 4 OPTIONAL: Dig a hole in the center of the ice cream and add chocolate chips until it’s level with the ice cream. Process on MIX-IN. Or serve the ice cream with the chocolate chips sprinkled on top.

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/4 cup plain almond milk, unsweetened
  • Green food coloring (optional)

  1. To prepare the base, place all the base ingredients in a mixing bowl and whisk until the sweetener is dissolved and the color is uniform, if using food coloring.
  2. Pour the mixture into the CREAMi pint, making sure it doesn't go over the MAX FILL line, then put the lid on it.
  3. Place the pint in the freezer, making sure it's level. Freeze for 24 hours.
  4. Take the pint from the freezer, remove the lid, and place it in the outer bowl. Install the paddle in the lid and attach lid to the outer bowl.

  7. When the unit shuts off, remove the bowl from the base and remove the lid. If the ice cream is crumbly, then reattach the lid and install the bowl on the base again. Select RE-SPIN.
  8. Once the ice cream is at the right consistency, dig a hole in the middle of the pint all the way to the bottom. Pour the chocolate chips into the hole.
  9. Reattach the lid and install the pint in the outer bowl again. Reinstall on the unit and select MIX-IN.
