This Ninja Creami Protein Ice Cream recipes uses only two ingredients and the results are thick, creamy, loaded with protein, and tastes just like your favorite chocolate soft serve. All you need is your favorite protein shake and some instant pudding mix (to add extra flavor and improve texture).


  • 1 11.4 oz Chocolate Protein Shake, I used Fairlife Nutrition Plan
  • 1 tablespoon Instant Chocolate Pudding Mix, I used regular but sugar-free works too
  • 1-2 tablespoons liquid for re-spin, milk, chocolate milk, or even water


  1. Mix Base in Pint Container - To the included Ninja Creami plastic pint container add the protein shake and pudding mix. Mix to combine. I like to use a milk frother to do this, but you can also mix well with a fork or small whisk.
  2. Freeze - Place the pint in the freezer and freeze for 24 hours so it is fully solid. Make sure you place it on a level surface in your freezer. I also like to freeze it without the lid on as I find it helps prevent the 'volcano peak' in the middle, but the peak is easy to scrape away before blending if you prefer to freeze with lid on.
  3. Prep for Blending - Remove the frozen pint from the freezer. If you have a 'peak' in the center, it's best to scrape most of it away with a spoon. It doesn't need to be perfectly even, but you want it to be as level and even as possible so the blade doesn't go off kilter.
  4. Blend - Insert into the outer bowl, add the lid, and lock into position. Blend on 'Lite Ice Cream'
  5. Add Liquid and Re-Spin - It's normal for the ice cream to be a little powdery and crumbly after just one spin. Make a little well in the center, add the extra liquid, and re-spin on the same lite ice cream setting.
  6. Enjoy - After the second spin, your protein ice cream should be creamy and ready to enjoy!


Liquid for Re-Spin: This is optional, but I do find adding just a little bit of liquid helps it get creamier. I typically use chocolate milk or regular milk, but even a little water will do the trick.
