If you have a Ninja Creami ice cream maker, you already know that one of the best things about it is the ability to make countless varieties of frozen treats.

From fruit sorbets to high-protein desserts, the great thing about this machine is that you can easily customize your desserts with simple ingredients.

I love to make Ninja Creami recipes with pie filling and Ninja Creami recipes with pudding mix, so I decided to combine the two in this easy recipe for Ninja Creami cherry cheesecake ice cream!

It’s a simple way to enjoy a decadent treat of homemade ice cream,but with very minimal effort on your part.

Easy Cherry Cheesecake Ice Cream Made in the Ninja Creami

You’re going to love how effortless it is to make this easy dessert!

When I want something sweet, I don’t want to mess with tempering egg yolks or trying to find obscure ingredients.

So I kept things simple by including main ingredients that are easy to find and keep on hand in your pantry.

I used instant cheesecake pudding mix in the ice cream base, which not only gives it the classic tang we associate with cheesecake, but also helps to stabilize the mixture and make it nice and creamy.

The sweet cherry flavor comes from cherry pie filling, which simply could not be easier!

I use cherry pie filling in my Ninja Creami cherry ice cream as well as my Ninja Creami cherry limeade sorbet, so I knew it would be a great way to make this sweet treat, too.

Of course, you could always take it a step further by mixing in some graham cracker pieces to mimic a crust, or some chocolate chips to make it extra decadent.

Be sure to try my Ninja Creami dark sweet cherry sherbet, too!

How to Make Ninja Creami Cherry Cheesecake Ice Cream

It’s easy to make this flavorful frozen treat with just a few basic ingredients.

Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • Whole milk
  • Dry instant cheesecake-flavored pudding mix
  • Heavy cream
  • Cherry pie filling
  • Vanilla extract
  • Optional Mix-ins, such as graham crackers or chocolate chips

How to Make it:

Dissolve the pudding mix. You’ll start by whisking together the milk and dry pudding mix. You’ll want to stir it until the pudding mix dissolves.

Then add in the heavy whipping cream and whisk to combine.

Finish the base. Add in the cherry pie filling and vanilla extract and use a spoon or spatula to mix it together well.

Pour the ice cream base into a Ninja Creami pint container and close the lid.

Freeze. Transfer the pint container to a level surface in your freezer and freeze for at least 24 hours.

Spin. Remove the pint from the freezer and take off the lid. Place the container into the outer bowl apparatus and secure the outer bowl lid.

Place the outer bowl into the Ninja Creami machine. Use the Ice Cream button to let Ninja’s Creamify technology get to work.

Check consistency. Remove the pint from the machine and check the consistency of the ice cream. If it appears crumbly, insert it back into the machine and use the Re-spin function.

If it’s still crumbly after that, add a tablespoon of milk and Re-spin again to make it nice and creamy.

Optional: Add mix-in if desired. If you’re adding any mix-ins, create a well in the ice cream that’s about 1/2-inch wide and extends all the way to the bottom of the pint.

Add your mix-in pieces to the well, then return the pint to the machine and use the Mix-in button to incorporate the pieces into the ice cream mixture.

Notes and Adaptations:

  • If you need to make this ice cream dairy-free for your dietary needs, you can try using a non-dairy milk instead of whole milk, such as unsweetened coconut milk, almond milk, oat milk, etc. You can use coconut cream instead of heavy cream.
  • You’ll only be using half of a small box of instant cheesecake pudding, so you can either double the recipe and make two pints, or save the remaining pudding mix for another batch later.
  • I have not tested this recipe with sugar free instant pudding mix or sugar free pie filling, but I think it would likely work fine. You may want to use the Lite Ice Cream function if you go the low sugar route.
  • If you’re enjoying leftovers of this easy ice cream recipe, I suggest letting the pint container sit out at room temperature for about 10 minutes so it can soften slightly before scooping.
