How to make the ninja creami strawberry ice cream?
Making Ninja Strawberry Ice Cream is a breeze. With just three ingredients, the recipe is incredibly simple. Blend the strawberries, almond milk, and whey protein powder together, transfer the mixture to your Ninja Creami pint and freeze for 24 hours.
Transfer to your Ninja Creami machine, and use the "smoothie" function to spin to creamy perfection. Within a short time, you'll have homemade ice cream ready to enjoy.
Here are two tips on making the best ninja creami strawberry ice cream ever:
- Opt for Ripe and Sweet Strawberries: To ensure a flavorful and delicious ice cream, choose ripe and sweet strawberries. The sweetness of the strawberries will directly impact the overall taste of the ice cream. Look for strawberries that are vibrant in color, fragrant, and slightly soft to the touch. This will help to maximize the natural sweetness and enhance the strawberry flavor in your ice cream.
- Add a Splash of Lemon Juice: To enhance the bright and refreshing flavor of the strawberries, consider adding a splash of fresh lemon juice to the mixture before blending. The acidity of the lemon juice complements the sweetness of the strawberries and adds a tangy note, resulting in a more well-rounded and vibrant flavor profile. Be cautious not to add too much lemon juice, as it can overpower the delicate strawberry taste. Start with a small amount and adjust to your personal preference.
Store your Ninja Creamy Strawberry Ice Cream in the Ninja Creami pint container:
- Once you've prepared the ice cream, keep any leftovers directly into the Ninja Creami pint container.
- Securely seal the lid on the pint container to ensure it is airtight.
- Place the pint container in the freezer, ideally in the coldest part, such as the back or bottom, to maintain a consistent temperature.
To enjoy your Ninja Creamy Strawberry Ice Cream:
- Remove the pint container from the freezer and let it sit at room temperature for a few minutes to soften slightly. This will make it easier to scoop.
