Steps by step instructions
How to make sugar free salted caramel ice cream in the ninja creami ice cream maker
STEP 1: Prepare the low carb caramel sauce, then blend the remaining ingredients (excluding the caramel sauce) in a blender at medium-low speed for 30 seconds until thoroughly incorporated.
Transfer the blended mixture to the Ninja Creami pint and freeze for a minimum of 24 hours to allow the ice cream to set.
STEP 2: Once frozen, process the mixture in the Ninja Creami machine using the "smoothie" button for a creamy texture.
Create a well down the center of the ice cream, adding the low carb caramel sauce as the mix-in.
STEP 3: Process the ice cream once again in the Ninja Creami machine, utilizing the "mix-in" button to incorporate the low carb caramel sauce.
Serve and enjoy. Sprinkle with more sea salt if desired.
Alternatively, you can opt to use the low carb caramel sauce as a topping for the ice cream or swirl it in with a spoon, enhancing the flavor profile without incorporating it during the "mix-in" step in the Ninja Creami machine.
- Flavor Infusion: Elevate the caramel notes by adding a dash of ground cinnamon or a pinch of nutmeg to the ice cream mixture before freezing, creating a warm and comforting undertone.
- Customized Toppings: get creative by adding a variety of toppings like sugar-free chocolate shavings or a dollop of whipped cream, allowing each serving to be uniquely tailored to individual preferences.

- Storage: Store the sugar-free salted caramel ice cream in the pint with a tightly sealed lid in the freezer to maintain its texture and prevent freezer burn.
