A Ninja Creami protein ice cream recipe without the dairy! Still packed with protein, sweetened naturally, in a funfetti-inspired vanilla cake batter flavor – it’s the perfect healthy frozen treat!


  • 1 cup cashew milk (or coconut milk, higher fat milk = creamier ice cream)
  • 1/2 cup dairy-free yogurt (or use all milk and add 2 tbsp nut/seed butter)
  • 2 scoops vanilla protein powder (THIS is the brand I used)
  • 23 pitted medjool dates
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • sprinkles!


  1. Blend all the ingredients until smooth.
  2. Pour into a Ninja Creami container and freeze overnight.
  3. Process on the LIGHT ICE CREAM, it will be powdery at this point. Add a splash of milk and RE-SPIN once or twice as needed.
  4. Add sprinkles, and process on the MIX-IN setting. 
  5. Enjoy!
