Steps by step instructions
How to make the Sugar Free Eggnog Ice Cream in the Ninja Creami?
STEP 1: Prepare the Base
- In a medium saucepan over low-medium heat, combine the almond milk and heavy cream.
- Whisk the two together until well-mixed and warmed, creating the creamy base for the ice cream.
STEP 2: Infuse Flavor and Texture
- Gradually add sugar-free vanilla pudding, protein powder, vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, and, if desired, rum extract.
- Continue to whisk the mixture, ensuring the incorporation of all ingredients for a flavorful and textured ice cream base.
STEP 3: Temper and Integrate Egg Yolks
- In a small bowl, whisk the two large egg yolks until well beaten.
- Take two tablespoons of the ice cream mixture and slowly add it to the egg yolks, whisking vigorously. This tempers the eggs.
- Incorporate the tempered egg yolks back into the main mixture, whisking continuously to avoid curdling.

- Creative Toppings: Elevate your serving experience by experimenting with creative toppings. Sprinkle a touch of ground cinnamon, nutmeg, or crushed sugar-free candy canes on top. The added textures and flavors will enhance the overall enjoyment of this delightful treat.
