How to Make Ice Cream with One Ingredient Using the Ninja Master Prep

Updated on August 5, 2012
3.3 stars from 3 ratings of One-ingredient Ice Cream

It’s true. You can make healthy, no-fat, low-calorie soft serve ice cream with just one ingredient. All you need is a good blender. For me, personally, I use the Ninja Master Prep. The Ninja’s powerful pulsing technology combined with its uniquely stacked blades, ensures that your soft serve ice cream comes out perfectly each and every time.

The dishwasher safe Ninja comes with three containers: a large 48 oz pitcher with a splash guard and storage lid; a 40 oz bowl and storage lid and a 16 oz chopper container with storage lids. If you are looking to make a single serving of ice cream (1-3 scoops), the smallest container will work just fine, but if you are looking to make ice cream for the whole family, or you’re just really, really hungry, choose the larger bowl.


  • 1 frozen banana, (more bananas will obviously be needed for larger servings)
  • Ninja Master Prep container
  • Ninja Master Prep power pod
  1. Peel one large banana(s) and cut into small, but not too small pieces.
  2. Freeze these banana pieces for at least 1 hour. Make sure they are completely frozen and solid before you go any further.
  3. Place your banana pieces around the stacked blades in your Ninja container, attach your lid and power pod and push the pulsing button down, steadily, for one minute or so, or until your banana is smooth and creamy and is the consistency of soft serve ice cream.
  4. Scoop into bowls and enjoy!


  • For creamier ice cream, use a small touch of milk
  • For a sweeter tasting ice cream, add a teaspoon of sugar or one packet of Splenda
