Dairy-Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Ice Cream With Nuzest Vegan Protein & Ninja Creami

 Looking for dairy-free ice cream recipes to make in the Ninja Creami machine? I got you covered with a delicious chocolate peanut butter protein ice cream recipe. You will love that it has 10 grams of vegan protein per serving. This is also a gluten-free and soy-free recipe.

 Buying allergy-friendly ice cream at the store has been quite the challenge when you are allergic to dairy, wheat, and soy protein. Reading dairy-free ice cream labels has been frustrating. It has been nearly impossible to find a vegan ice cream that contains no wheat or soy. I got excited when Ben and Jerry came out with a gluten-free, dairy-free ice cream. Then I read the label and discovered that the ice cream contains soy protein. 

 The exciting flavors of dairy-free ice cream of most store varieties contain wheat ingredients. So that usually leaves my vegan ice cream selection choices to vanilla, chocolate, and cherry garcia. 

 I got tired of paying the high prices of plant-based ice cream and the limited selection that I could eat. So I treated myself to a Ninja Creami ice cream maker. I am excited to be able to create delicious vegan ice cream. No longer will my ice cream choices be limited to three flavors. With the Ninja Creami, I will be able to make customized ice cream that is safe for me to eat.

My first Ninja Creami dairy-free creation is loaded with protein

​​One of my favorite things about the Ninja Creami ice cream machine is the ability to easily customize ingredients. 

 This means you can easily create different flavors of frozen treats according to your needs, whether you’re following a low-carb or keto diet, eliminating gluten, cutting back on sugar, or need dairy-free ice creams. 

This homemade ice cream machine can also help you make healthy frozen treats. So I decided to make a dairy-free protein ice cream for my first creation. If I was going to enjoy a sweet treat, I might as well make it healthy with some plant-based protein. 

Nuzest Clean Lean Plant-Based Protein For the Best Vegan Protein Ice Cream Recipe

 Nuzest protein powder is great for adding protein to recipes. Nuzest is the only protein powder that I have discovered works best in recipes. Nuzest mixes completely into recipes and does not leave a grainy texture or a chemical taste. In fact, Nuzest can also replace flour in recipes for awesome gluten-free baking.


 I love using Nuzest protein in my gluten-free mocha brownies. Nuzest Protein is dairy-free, soy-free, nut-free, and gluten-free. Nuzest also contains 20 grams of plant-based protein per serving.

Dairy-Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Ice Cream

~ IS CREAMY ~ using the right ingredients makes a difference

~ IS HIGH-PROTEIN ~ Nuzest protein adds 10 grams of plant protein per serving

~ IS DAIRY-FREE ~ this is great for those with dairy allergies

~ IS GLUTEN-FREE ~ this is great for those who avoid wheat

~ IS HEALTHIER ~ I used less sugar and healthy fats

~ IS EASY TO MAKE ~ the Creami is easy to use

 After I took my Ninja Creami maker out of the box, I read the included recipe book. The Ninja Creami Recipe book had suggestions for ingredient swaps to make dairy-free ice cream. Then I went to the internet to get more ideas for dairy-free ice cream recipes. It was then that I saw that people were making protein ice cream. 

So I knew that I had to add Nuzest Protein to my dairy-free ice cream recipe as extra protein is always a good thing when you follow a plant-based diet. 



Ingredients Needed For Dairy-Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Ice Cream

~ Coconut Milk ~ the extra fat is needed for a creamy texture

~ Nuzest Chocolate Protein ~ this is the best way to add protein 

~ Agave Syrup or Maple Syrup ~ adds a touch of sweetness

~ Peanut Butter ~ adds flavor

~ Cocoa Powder ~ adds more chocolate flavor

~ Vanilla ~ enhances the flavor

 To make this delicious ice cream, you just need a handful of simple ingredients, a blender, and a Ninja Creami. You also need to have patience as you have to freeze the ingredient mixture for 12-24 hours.

Can I use a regular ice cream maker?

 I have not made this recipe in a regular ice cream maker, so I don't know the results. From reading other articles, I have learned that the Ninja Creami works differently from a regular ice cream maker.


Ninja Creami Tips

~ Read the Creami Instruction book ~ if this is your first time making ice cream read the instructions

~ Blend your ingredients before freezing 

~ Don't overfill the Creami Cups ~ stay 1/4 inch below the fill line as the ingredients will go up in volume in the freezer. You need the extra space when blending as it adds volume to the mixture

~ Use the RE-SPIN Button ~ After you blend the mixture on the Ice Cream setting, it may look powdery or crumbly. The trick to getting creamy ice cream is to add a splash of plant-based milk and use the RE-SPIN function. If it is not creamy, re-spin again.

Storage and Refreezing Tips

If you have leftover ice cream, you can refreeze it. 

~ Just make sure to smooth out the ice cream before freezing as this will help it re-blend better. 

~ Place the lid on the container and stick it back in the freezer.

~ When you want to enjoy the ice cream, add a splash of plant-based milk. Then place the container back in the Ninja Creami, and press the ice cream button.
