When spring and summer roll around, I want to make ALL of the berry treats!

I most often make sorbet with berries, but I was in the mood for something a little different this time.

Since the sweet and tart flavor of berries pairs really well with a rich, creamy texture of ice cream, I thought it would be a great place to start.

Not only that, but my kids love all things blueberry, so I knew I needed to make some Ninja Creami blueberry ice cream this year.

It was really easy to make, thanks to a little shortcut, and it tasted great, too!

Blueberry Ice Cream in the Ninja Creami

If you’ve been using your Ninja Creami very long, you’ve probably already discovered how easy it is to make delicious desserts out of surprising ingredients.

One of my favorite shortcuts is to make Ninja Creami desserts with canned pie filling!

I’ve made cherry limemade sorbet and berry lemonade sorbet with pie filling, which are both so simple.

So for this ice cream, I used blueberry pie filling to bring flavor and sweetness. It worked great!

I used about half of the can, so you could use the remaining pie filling to make a second pint of ice cream, or just use it as a topping for the finished product.

How to Make it:

(Full printable recipe card is available below)

Mix the base. In a small bowl or liquid measuring cup, combine blueberry pie filling, milk, and heavy cream.

Once you stir everything together well, give it a taste.

If you feel like it needs a little more sweetness, add a couple of tablespoons of sugar (or sugar-free sweetener, if preferred).

Stir to incorporate, or use an immersion blender to combine. Pour mixture into a Ninja Creami pint container.

Freeze. Place a lid on the Ninja Creami pint container and transfer it to your freezer. Let it freeze for at least 24 hours.

Spin. Remove the pint from the freezer and take off the lid. Place the pint into the outer bowl of the Ninja Creami, then secure the outer bowl’s lid.

Place the bowl apparatus into the Ninja Creami machine, locking it into place. Press the Ice Cream button and allow the cycle to complete.

Re-spin, if needed. Remove the pint from the machine and take a look at the texture of your ice cream.

If it looks a little crumbly, insert it back into the machine and use the Re-spin button.

If it’s still crumbly after that, add a tablespoon of milk to the ice cream and Re-spin once more.

Notes and Adaptations:

  • You could make this a blueberry pie ice cream by adding some chopped graham crackers as a mix-in, then topping with a dollop of whipped cream when serving.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Additional Time 1 day

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cup blueberry pie filling
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar (optional)

Instructions

  1. In a Ninaj Creami pint container, combine blueberry pie filling, milk, and heavy cream. Stir together to combine (you can also use an immersion blender if you have one).
  2. Taste the mixture. If needed, add one or two tablespoons of sugar, stirring to combine. Keep in mind that the mixture will taste slightly less sweet once it's been frozen.
  3. Place the lid on the Ninja Creami container and transfer to a level surface in your freezer. Let freeze for at least 24 hours.
  4. Remove pint from freezer an take off the lid. Place the pint container into the outer bowl of the Ninja Creami, securing the outer bowl lid.
  5. Transfer bowl apparatus to the Ninja Creami machine, locking it into place. Press the Ice Cream button and allow the cycle to complete.
  6. Once the cycle is finished, remove the outer bowl and look at the ice cream's texture. If it looks crumbly, insert it back into the machine and press the Re-spin button. If it's still crumbly after that, add a tablespoon of milk and Re-spin again.

Notes

  • If you'd like this to be a blueberry pie ice cream, you can add chopped graham crackers as a mix-in. Simply create a well in the center of the ice cream that's about a half inch wide and extends to the bottom of the pint. Place 1/4-cup of chopped graham crackers into the well. Insert the pint back into the machine and press the Mix-in button, allowing the graham crackers to be incorporated into the ice cream. Then serve with a dollop of whipped cream!
  • This recipe uses about half of a 15-oz can of pie filling. You can double the recipe and make two pints of ice cream to use up the rest of the filling, or you can use the remaining filling as an ice cream topping.
