What is a Ninja CREAMi?

The Ninja CREAMi is a small kitchen appliance that allows you to make delicious and healthy frozen desserts in minutes. With its powerful dual motors and durable blades, the CREAMi can easily blend frozen fruits, vegetables and other ingredients into a smooth and creamy texture. 

You can even make some of these sugar-free Starbucks drinks with the Ninja CREAMi.

Ninja Kitchen calls this their, “creamify technology” where the dual drive motors apply downward pressure and spin the Creamerizer Paddle (blade). The paddle finely shaves the frozen concoction and churns the ice particles into a delicious frozen treat.

Whether you’re looking to make a traditional ice cream, sorbet, or frozen cocktails, the Ninja CREAMi is a versatile tool that can help you achieve this. No need for preservatives or additives like in traditional recipes.

How to use a Ninja CREAMi?

The premise of a Ninja CREAMi is that you start with an ice cream base, which can be as simple as a ready-to-drink protein shake or as complex as following a gelato recipe that requires cooking.

You then put this base into the Ninja CREAMi pint container with a lid and then freeze it for 24 hours. After that, remove the lid, place the pint into the pint hold, place the paddle into the lid, and secure it tightly.

After that, put the pint holder into the CREAMi and turn it until it locks into place. Next, select the desired option (ice cream, gelato, milkshake, etc). If, after one spin, your base isn’t at the desired consistency, you can select the “re-spin” function. 

Once the mixture is at the desired consistency, you can either consume it, or you can make a hole and add any toppings or mixes you desire. Select the “+ mix-in” button, let it run, and get ready to enjoy.

Is a Ninja CREAMi loud?

The Ninja CREAMi is louder than a traditional ice cream maker and this is due to its powerful motors. It’s louder than a Vitamix Immersion Blender and Air Fryer, and is about as loud as a regular blender.

How much does a Ninja CREAMi cost?

The price of a Ninja CREAMi can vary depending on the model and retailer. Generally, prices range from $180 to $250.

How is the CREAMi different from a traditional ice cream maker?

The Ninja CREAMi is different from a traditional ice cream maker in a few ways. First, the CREAMi starts with a frozen ice cream base, whereas when using a traditional ice cream maker, you start with a liquid ice cream base. 

The Ninja CREAMi can make a wider variety of frozen desserts and drinks, such as sorbet and frozen cocktails, while a traditional ice cream maker is primarily used for making ice cream, custard, or frozen yogurt.

Using a Ninja CREAMi is an easy way to make delicious healthy, or decadent desserts that the entire family will love. You just have to plan ahead to allow your mixture to freeze for 24 hours. It’s honestly the hardest part of the entire ice cream-making process.
