My Hip sidekick Angela absolutely loves her Ninja Creami Maker, and here’s what she has to say about it:

“I know several Hip team members have the fancy Wynter Ice Cream Machine, but a couple of months ago I got the Ninja Creami, it’s so awesome! It’s seriously the easiest thing ever to use. You can even throw in watermelon and mash it down and after it’s frozen make a one-ingredient sorbet.

I love being able to enjoy ice cream without a lot of added ingredients and I can keep the sugar and carb content low. With just a few simple ingredients, I’m able to create a yummy snack.

There are so many hacks and tips on social – like spinning it, then spinning for another minute and adding a little more liquid to make it smoother. A lot of people on TikTok are making keto ice cream using sugar-free Jell-o cheesecake pudding and the Fairlife Shakes from Costco & Sam’s. 😋

Angela makes her own version of a protein ice cream!

She starts off with a Fairlife shake in any flavor as her base. She then adds berries, bananas, and/or peanut butter. Top it off with some chocolate syrup, and that’s it! A super simple method that follows the eye-ball measurement method. 🤣

    I mix a packet of Nestle hot chocolate with vanilla ice cream to make hot chocolate ice cream. Really good.

    Does anyone have an issue with the ice cream getting stuck between the layers of the mixing lid? Like in with the springs and mechanisms? It happens every time I use it and it’s such a pain to try to clean out 😩

    • kristini

      No, haven’t had that happen.
