One of my favorite things about the Ninja Creami ice cream machine is the ability to easily customize ingredients.
Because it works differently than traditional ice cream makers, it’s easy to make frozen treats with ingredients that might not ordinarily work well in other ice cream machines.
This means you can easily create different flavors of frozen treats according to your needs, whether you’re following a low carb or keto diet, are cutting back on sugar, or need dairy free ice creams and sorbets!
Not only are these homemade treats typically much less expensive than buying dairy-free desserts in the grocery store, but you can make them according to your preference and needs, without a bunch of strange ingredients.
So you can still satisfy your sweet tooth, but on your own terms!

Tips for Making Ninja Creami Recipes without Dairy
Maybe you’ve found a recipe that you want to try in the Ninja Creami ice cream maker, but it includes dairy in the ingredients.
If so, a few simple tweaks can usually be made to most Ninja Creami recipes, so you can enjoy a dairy-free version of the recipe.
Here are some of our favorite adaptations you can try:
- Use coconut cream instead of heavy cream. This provides the fat necessary for a creamy ice cream.
- Skip the whole milk and use non-dairy milk instead. Almond milk, oat milk, coconut milk, etc. are fine choices.
- Use vegan cream cheese. If a recipe calls for cream cheese, swap in a vegan version instead.
- Re-spin if the mixture is too icy or crumbly. Adding a tablespoon of non-dairy milk to ice creams before a re-spin can help give a better texture.
We hope that helps to give you some inspiration for making amazing dairy free treats in your Ninja Creami!
