    Not the Ninja but.......
    the blendtec i find the ice to water ratio is 1 c water to 3 cups crushed ice. When i used my Bullet it was less ice and a bit more water.

    Yup--I scoop protein, 1/2 tsp xanthum, liquid stevia, water, ice, blend. You'll have to play around with protein powder--some work better than others, IMO, and consistency--I like mine like soft serve. I make mine at night with casein because its naturally thicker and works the best--ON brand.

    I have a ninja but I haven't been able to perfect it yet. I usually end up having to freeze it for an hour or so, but then it never turns out like soft serve. I'll have to keep tweaking! If you find the magic ninja amounts let me know :)

    Thanks so much. I have no prob getting soft serve consistency with my Vitamix (no freezing needing) but was trying to find out if anyone had a good recipe for my Ninja friends. :)

    Oh! Please share your Vitamix ratio! Protein ice cream was one of the main incentives to buy my Vitamix and each time I've tried, I get flavorless, textured slush. Thank you!

    I did and then got flavorless ice that was so thick it was stuck to the sides and the blades couldn't touch them. I hate to waste the PP but I guess I need to experiment with less of everything and play from there. Do you use crushed ice? Maybe that's my mistake? Thanks!

    I've used a few different Vitamix models and get consistently great results. I don't always use the same amounts or measure very carefully...but here goes:
    1/2 - 1 cup of unsweetended Almond milk depending on diet plan (if using 1/2 cup you can add a bit of water)
    1 scoop Trutein Protein Powder (vanilla)
    1/4 - 1 tsp xanathan gum
    two handfuls of ice cubes or less ice and 1/2 frozen banana
    1-2 TBL unsweetened dark cocoa (Optional)

    Blend on variable 1 and increase to high. Use the tamper. If mixture isn't turning due to thickness, turn off, then start again at low, and increase to high. Blend until 4 mounds form and sound changes.
    Comes out like THICK soft serve ice cream! You can mix unsweetened 1-2 TBL unsweetened dark cocoa with sweetner and hot water to make chocolate sauce (adds 10-20 calories).
