Default Ninja Creami

This appliance makes frozen desserts out of pretty much anything that can be frozen. I have a yogurt/raspberry mix freezing for my first attempt, and a chocolate SF/LC recipe for attempt #2.

Anyone else have one? I'm looking for LC recipes, preferably not super high-fat.

My Facebook feed was littered with Cremi groups! I kept hitting "donít show me this" and another one would pop up in its place Think it was because I searched for protein desserts. I'm happy using frozen berries or adding ice cubes to milk and protein powder for nowÖbut LC or HP versions for the Creami should be easy to find

Lots of recipes for lc ice cream and frozen desserts in our Sweet Treats forum. Check out this list https://forum.lowcarber.org/showthr...065#post6375065. Not all lower fat, but I'm sure some can be adapted.

Enjoy your new toy

I'm hearing people making treats out of Keto Chow. I did make a sugar free chocolate that came out very good! It is a fun item, but so noisy. I might move it to the garage.

Another group on FB is back this morning! Prolific little recipe creators. Name is Ninja Creami Group/Recipes.

One guy is adding sugar-free, low fat pudding mix as the flavor. (Ugh) Another is simply using a favorite bottle of Protein drink and going through the freezing process to make an ice creamy meal replacement. (Yum, but also can do that with ice or freezer time). Also seen many weird sugary recipes, e.g. IPA gelato, beer and bacon ice cream, like the sales force is in competition to post the craziest recipes. NinjaTestKitchen likes those😋 Even if they don't taste good, you can get a nice buzz trying them all.

I think where this excells is in creating the texture of ice cream of things that would have more crystals if you used a freezer type of ice cream maker. My raspberry NF yogurt sorbet was a bit too tart, but the texture was amazing. Tonight I have strawberries just about ready to be shaved into sorbet. Yum! I put some allulose on those. I'm going to try a gelato which will be a cooked custard. I can just imagine that will be insanely yummy.

Nancy, not sure if you joined that Ninja Cremi group, but yet again today, it is back in my feed...specifically with a link to someone who makes many low fat Protein Ice Creams. I donít have a Cremi, so canít vouch for them, but they do sound good if also wanting to up protein. https://chefallieskitchen.com/category/ice-cream

They're not cheap. About $200, I see.

I got a Creami on Amazon during Prime Days. Better price. And I've seen them on Woot. I have not used it yet but know a lot of people love it.

It is much more convenient (mostly) than the sort of ice cream maker where you freeze a big bucket. You only have to freeze the pints for 24 hours, then put them on the machine. Less to clean too!

However, it is noisy as heck. I put mine in the garage and just take a pint out when I'm ready.

No idea about the purpose of adding SF pudding mix, but it is usually only 1 Tbsp. Maybe for texture? for flavor? Anyway, enjoy!

Another DDF challenge starts this morning. Will you be joining?
I weighed 152.0Ö2 pounds over goal. It is crazy how "hunger training" or the emphasis on high satiety per calorie, high protein, makes maintenance so easy. I'm doing more exercise but have been no angel in the summer drinks area. Looking forward to trying to go below my self-imposed goal this session.

Btw, I really like my Ninja Blender. Ted Naiman recommended as a budget alternate to a Vitamix.. works great. When it is brutally hot, Iíve been making the Green Hulk Smoothie with Frozen mixed berries, vanilla Protein powder, cinnamon. Chews through the greenery and frozen berries in less than a minute on high, a fluffy, creamy smoothie. Green and purple may not be best color mix, but tastes fine to me.

No, not joining in. I managed to lose about 5 pounds on my own. Just being much more mindful of my eating and paying closer attention to how lousy I feel when I over eat and/or under-exercise. I seem to be holding steady right now. The Ninja isn't helping, although I can make a really good treat with strawberries and a non-dairy milk and erythritol.

I did end up splurging on a VitaMix. I should try that drink! I often do find that drinking a meal doesn't satisfy me as much as eating one.

I have a high-protein smoothie - cold and thick - every day for breakfast and found that putting it into a special insulated glass, and drinking it slowly through a straw has made it more satisfying.

Nancy, we"ll miss you ! I just posted on the DDF community about the two new articles on DietDoctor about Higher-Satiety. Dr Bret Scher's on the Science studies on the three types Satiety..all the links will take you down a rabbit hole. https://www.dietdoctor.com/the-stud...-satiety-eating
Two days ago, Anne Mullens added a Practical Guide to high Satiety foods. In a link there, titled 20 cheap proteins, one was Whey Isolate and another, all the various vegetarian powders. Like Marty and Ted, real whole foods are preferrred and more satiating, but DD is now more accepting that they come in handy. I sometimes eat a protein and vegetable lunch that is "too satiating!" And that green smoothie with frozen berries works well for me.
