  1. Jill, you’ve done it again! I just whipped up a batch of blueberry chocolate ice cream. The mix tastes great. Can’t wait to try it frozen tomorrow. Anyone who likes chocolates with fruit fillings enjoy this combo.

  2. Thank you so much for this recipe! I made it with frozen cherries instead of blueberries and it turned out great!

  3. I sent my husband 3 of your recipes to try in our new Ninja Creami. For some reason, this one was the one I was looking forward to trying the least of the three. However, it was *by far* my favorite! I can’t wait to make more. Seven of us sampled the single pint. I’m gonna need a pint to myself! ?

  4. Hi Jill,

    Your video indicates using 1/2 tsp lemon juice, but the written instruction indicates using 1 tsp. lemon juice. Please advise.

    Also confirming: 1/2 tsp vanilla extract…correct?

    BTW: made your chocolate ice cream, my first Ninja Creami dessert. it was great, thx so much!


  5. Hi, please clarify the number and type of dates needed, and the amount of lemon juice needed, as there are inconsistencies between the video and written instructions. Thx! Mary

  6. Hi Jill!

    Thx for your response above.

    This chocolate blueberry ice cream is outstanding. I did end up using SEVEN medjool dates since freezing the concoction seems to reduce sweetness…this was my experience in making your 2 other ice cream recipes.

    Here’s a question for you: do you think the ice cream recipes would taste equally good if the 1 tbs of cashews was replaced with 1 tbs of any of these options: nut butter, ground chia or flax seeds, or avocado?

    I’ve had your banana chocolate ice cream and I was skeptical of this one (I was afraid it wouldn’t be creamy), but man is it delicious!! And I just use two dates and a little more cocoa powder because I like dark chocolate style. So creamy, so rich! Very great recipe!
