This ice cream uses a traditional vanilla ice cream base that I use for many of my ninja creami recipes that include:
- Almond Milk: you can use your favorite milk or nut milk but we love to use unsweetened vanilla almond milk for this recipe.
- Vanilla Protein Powder: we used a low carb vanilla protein powder that adds a creamy texture and enhances the flavor of the ice cream, making it even more delicious and enjoyable to eat
- Vanilla Extract: enhances all the flavors
- Sweetener: we use a ¼ cup brown sugar sweetener, we used erythritol but feel free to use your favorite sweetener.
- Cream Cheese: slightly tangy and gives a rich creaminess to the ice cream.
To make it a carrot cake flavor we add the following ingredients:
- Cinnamon, ground nutmeg, ground ginger, chopped pecans and shredded carrots
