Will it Creami? What We’ve Tried So Far Including Pudding Cups, Silken Tofu, Overnight Oats, and More!

Share or save some yum!

Did you know that there are some things that you can just dump into your Ninja Creami with no extra preparation?! It’s true! Things like premade vegan pudding, Orgain protein shakes, boxed silken tofu, Laird superfood creamer, overnight oats, Bird’s custard, canned fruit, and even canned corn can all be frozen and made into ice cream! Of course lots of places have their reviews of the Creami up, along with their – it has to be said, sometimes derivative, not to mention complicated – recipes. Not us! Remember, we’re lazy! So we’re testing premade things that we can just dump into the bowl, shove it into the freezer, and then Creami it. (Remember ‘Will it Blend’? Think that, for the Ninja Creami. :~) ) Below are all of the things we have tried to date, along with the results!

This is part of our “Will it Creami?” series, in which we dump something in the Ninja Creami and see if it will turn into an edible ice cream, sorbet, or other divine frozen concoction! In this episode we try dumping premade vegan chocolate pudding into the Creami container, freezing it, and “spinning” (i.e. churning) it. In fact, it was the first thing we tried for “Will it Creami?”

As we have dedicated our explorations with our new Ninja Creami to lazy vegans everywhere, we have determined to discover as many “dump and freeze” things as we can, giving rise to our “Will it Creami?” series of posts and recipes. Today we are turning our attention to that unsung hero of the tofu world, the shelf-stable silken tofu. We can just hear you now: “Tofu in ice cream??” Yes, our pretties, tofu not only in ice cream, but tofu as ice cream! We promise that it will blow your mind, because it’s actually deeeelicious!

In case you’re not familiar with the Ninja Creami, it works a bit differently from other home ice cream makers. With many home ice cream makers you have to freeze a relatively large, double-walled metal bowl, then put your ingredients in and process it. Of course, you still need your ingredients to be frozen with the Creami, but instead of having to freeze a big old bowl, which you will need to refreeze after you use it before you can make more ice cream, the Creami ingeniously has you freeze your ingredients right in the pint (or “larger pint”, depending on which model you get) containers in which you will blend and also store your frozen confections. This also means that you can have several in your freezer, pre-frozen and ready to go! Brilliant!!

How to Make that Viral TikTok Maple Syrup Olive Oil Caramel Sauce – With a Twist!

Share or save some yum!

A vegan caramel sauce recipe made with olive oil and maple syrup?? Yes! And our twist on it brings it to a whole new level of foodgasm!The Internet is a’buzz with @fitgreenmind’s viral TikTok video showing a very simple recipe, or hack if you will, of taking olive oil, maple syrup, and a pinch of salt, and turning it into smooth, delicious caramel sauce. Now, this is not as outlandish as it may seem at first glance. Traditional caramel sauce recipes nearly all call for butter, cream, and sugar. In other words, to make a delicious caramel sauce you need fat and something sweet. In the olive oil and maple syrup recipe, the olive oil takes the place of the fat from the butter and cream, while the maple syrup provides the something sweet, and together they provide the mouthfeel.

One of the coolest things about the shelf-stable, aseptic-boxed Mori-Nu organic silken tofu is how utterly versatile it is. Yet this unsung hero of the vegan world is often overlooked, passed by on store shelves for its water-packed, refrigerated cousins. Hopefully our easy creamy vegan salad dressing and dip recipe will change that! (By the way, the Mori-Nu organic silken tofu is considered ‘soft tofu’; it doesn’t say it anywhere on the box but that has been confirmed by Mori-nu. This is important to know as there is such a thing as firm silken tofu and even extra-firm silken tofu.)

And that’s when we realized that our magic secret ingredient could do the trick!
