How does the Ninja Creami work?

Why is my Creami ice cream crumbly?

Ice cream becomes crumbly for a variety of reasons, including not enough fat content, too much water content, or improper freezing.  Add a 1/2 tsp of milk, cream, or almond milk to your pint, and put the pint back into your Ninja on the re-spin cycle.  This re-spin cycle can be great friend to you!

The more time your ice cream is in the freezer- the more you will want to freshen it up, and add a small quantity of liquid- and re-spin.
