Prepare to be amazed when you try this Ninja Creami S’mores Ice Cream, easy to make gluten-free all in your Ninja Creami Machine!
Imagine sitting around a crackling campfire, toasting marshmallows to golden perfection, and sandwiching them between squares of chocolate and graham crackers. That classic combination of flavors is none other than the beloved s’mores.
Now, envision all of that goodness in a delightfully frozen form, reimagined and perfected with the help of a Ninja Creami and this Ninja Creami S’mores Ice Cream.
Let’s talk about the Ninja Creami!
Have you fallen in love with the Ninja Creami Machine? It’s no secret around here that I make Ninja Foodi Recipes daily, but I’ll be honest and say that I have had my Ninja Creami for A LONG TIME…since they came out and never really got into it…until recently.
The Ninja Creami comes with 2-pint jars with lids that you can make a variety of frozen treats in. Primarily we use it for ice cream; however, you can easily blend milkshakes, protein shakes with protein powder, and more.
The key with the Ninja Creami is that you sometimes have to adapt it a bit.
Ninja Creami Prep Tips:
It’s also very important to remember that your frozen treats have to chill in the freezer for 24 hours before blending them. This is referred to as the base of the recipe, the base needs to be frozen all the way through.
If yours is fully frozen before 24 hours, then you would be fine to blend it up, but in order to get the best consistency, it’s always best to freeze it for a full 24 hours.
It also needs to be frozen flat and even on a level surface, meaning it’s not leaning to the side or tossed in the freezer.
When using the machine, remember that you need to press the button and move the handle right to release your blender assembly from the machine.
For more assembly questions, be sure to refer to the manufacturer’s instructions for your machine. There are a few different models now.
What happens when your Ninja Creami Ice Cream is crumbly?
Lastly, the MOST IMPORTANT tip I’ve discovered over using ours is that sometimes when you first spin it in your machine, it will come out crumbly and not at all like the consistency of ice cream.
If this happens, add 1-2 Tbsp of milk to the mixture and then blend it again on the ICE CREAM function.
Then, open that lid and you will find the perfect consistency of ice cream. Remember to also stir up the bottom of the pint, sometimes ingredients get stuck in the crevices of the pint, so be sure to stir it up well.
Ninja Creami ice cream comes out of the machine similar to a soft serve depending on the amount of spins that you use.
What ingredients do you need for Ninja Creami S’mores Ice Cream?
- Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix
- Vanilla Extract
- Chocolate Sauce (Hershey’s Sauce)
- Marshmallow Cream
- Milk (Fat Free Milk, 2%, or Whole Milk)
- Crushed Graham Crackers (or Gluten-Free Graham Crackers)
- Mini Marshmallows
These are all of the ingredients needed to make this homemade ice cream.
If you want to make it gluten-free, use gluten-free graham crackers, and as always check all other ingredients before using.
Remember that the pudding MUST be Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix or it will not work the same. We like to use the Jell-O brand.
How do you Make Ninja Creami S’mores Ice Cream?
Using your Ninja Creami pint, add in the vanilla pudding mix, vanilla extract, chocolate sauce, marshmallow cream, and then add milk to the fill line. The marshmallow cream will make it chunky, but this is fine, just mix it as best you can, primarily mixing in the chocolate.
Once this is in the pint, use a spoon to carefully stir up the ingredients, be sure to get as much as you can off the bottom of the pint too. Once is lightly mixed, go ahead and place the lid on the pint and freeze for 24 hours. This will be your ice cream base to use in the Ninja Creami ice cream maker.
After 24 hours, it’s time to do the first spin on your machine. Remove the gray lid and place your pint into the base with the handle that comes with the Creami, secure the lid, place bowl assembly back into your machine, and secure it.
Use the ICE CREAM function to give it a first spin.
Once released, carefully remove the lid and see if it’s at your desired consistency. If it is, make a nice valley in the middle of the pint to add the crushed graham crackers, marshmallows, and some extra sauce.
Resecure the lid assembly and add it back to the machine. Then, use the MIX-IN function to mix it all together.
Carefully remove the lid and serve the ice cream mixture or store for later.
We like to serve ours with graham cracker crumbs and a little bit of chocolate syrup.
How do you store Ninja Creami Ice Cream?
Ninja Creami Ice Cream can be stored in the pint jars that they are mixed in along with the gray storage lid. Simply add the lid place the ice cream in the freezer and eat as desired.
If you do not have a lid, you can also use freezer-safe plastic wrap too.
I learned a few tricks and now I feel like I’ve got it down enough that we are making ice cream daily, a variety of different ice creams, protein shakes, sorbets, and more. That means a lot of Ninja Creami Recipes are heading your way over the next several months, so stay tuned for new recipes.
This is such a fun and easy way to make sweet treats because there are so many varieties of ways to make them in your Ninja Creami. If you’re an ice cream lover, you will enjoy how quick and easy this is as opposed to churn ice cream recipes.
