How To Make Ninja Chocolate Ice Cream Recipe?

  • prepare time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Serves: 3 Pints Ingredients: 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  • 1.5 cups of sugar (3/4 cup + 2.5 teaspoons)
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (Note: The type of cocoa powder you choose to use for this recipe can impact the taste and texture, so it’s a good idea to experiment with different styles.)

Directions: Directions:

Step 1.

In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar and 1/4 cup of the cream, constantly stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until the mixture turns golden brown.

Step 2.

While the sugar is cooking, in a separate saucepan over low heat, combine milk and the remaining 2.5 teaspoons of cream and heat to a boil, occasionally stirring to ensure that it doesn’t burn at the bottom of the saucepan.

Step 3.

Once the sugar has caramelized, remove it from the heat, pour half of the hot mixture into the saucepan with the vanilla, and stir until it dissolves.

Step 4.

Add the remaining half of the mixture to the saucepan, then add two teaspoons of cocoa powder and all of the banana slices. Stir to combine.

Step 5.

Increase heat to medium-high and cook for 7 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally.

Step 6.

Pour the custard into a clean bowl and chill it in an ice bath (a bowl or container filled with cold water and ice cubes) until completely cooled. Then refrigerate until thoroughly chilled, about 4 hours or overnight. Then freeze in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions (if you decide to use an ice cream maker, that is). If you don’t have one, stir in the vanilla extract during the last 3 minutes of freezing time, and enjoy!

Step 7.

If you decide to use an ice cream maker, then follow the manufacturer’s instructions for assembling it and freezing the ice cream in it. Then put your ice cream in the freezer for at least 3 hours or overnight to harden.

Step 8.

Remove your Ninja Chocolate Ice Cream from the freezer about 15 minutes before serving, so it’s easier to scoop out. You can enjoy yours as is or top it with whipped cream, chocolate shavings, or any other topping of your choice!

Step 9.

Enjoy! Yum!

Can the regular ninja make ice cream?

You don’t need an ice cream maker to make this recipe. You need a large saucepan and a whisk. Most people use an ice cream maker because it’s a bit more convenient, and it also makes the cake have that excellent smoothness that you don’t get with a whisk. But Ninja Chocolate Ice Cream Recipe can easily be made without an ice cream maker if you have enough time on your hands.

So if you have access to a large saucepan, go ahead and use a whisk to make the custard. You don’t have to freeze the entire mixture before whisking it, but you must let it cool for about 90 minutes so the medicine can thicken up and get thicker.

Ninja Chocolate Ice Cream Recipe is made without an ice cream maker because it’s easier to drive without one.

Why is my Ninja Creamy ice cream crumbly?

If your ice cream is crumbly, then you probably didn’t let the combination cool for long enough before whisking it. It would help to let the mixture cool, so it has time to thicken up.

If you don’t want to wait 90 minutes or more for it to cool, you can put the mixture in an ice bath. All that means is you take a bowl or container and fill it with cold water and ice cubes. Put the bowl in your freezer for about an hour, and then take it out. The mixture will be cooled, and you can quickly whisk it without causing lumps or crumbles.

Even if you cool it too much, it should work fine. If you cannot whisk it without leaving lumps, let the ice cream churn slowly in the ice cream maker for about 15 minutes.

Bottom line:

Ninja Chocolate Ice Cream Recipe is a delicious treat that you can make without an ice cream maker. You can also use it to make many other desserts, and it’s an excellent topping for ice cream sundaes!
