Cool yourself off this Summer with this Electric Vegan Strawberry Banana NICE Cream! Made with burro bananas and sea moss gel, it's a high mineral sweet treat!
What is "Nice" Cream?
It's just a phrase we use in the vegan community to describe ice cream that doesn't use cruel dairy products.
Important Note about Using Burro Bananas
When using burro bananas for this recipe, be sure to use them very ripe. Once you peel them, they will be super soft. That's OK. Be sure to and scrap off the "phloem bundles" (aka the white "string-like part of the banana before the yellow flesh is exposed). Those create a weird texture when frozen and it's not pleasant.
Sea Moss Gel Ice Cream?
It might sound weird to add seaweed to your desserts but because sea moss gel has no taste, it's so easy to sneak it in! You can make this vegan ice cream without the gel but I mean why would when it adds so many minerals!
To gain a more in-depth understanding of this seaweed, read my Different Types of Sea Moss article.
How to Make Strawberry Banana Nice Cream?
*Please read detailed and printable recipe card below for full ingredients and instructions.
- Add all your ingredients to a food processor and blend until smooth. (Photos 1 & 2)
- Eat as is soft serve or add to a container and freeze until more solid for 2 to 4 hours before you serve. (Photos 3 & 4)
Substitution, Cook, & Storage Tips
- You can also use baby bananas are if you are not on an Alkaline vegan diet just use regular bananas.
- The sea moss gel can be omitted if you don't have any. It adds additional minerals to the ice cream making it a fun way to consume sea moss, but it's still healthy and tasty without it. Check out How to Make Sea Moss Gel for more information.
- If you don't eat strictly from Dr. Sebi Nutritional Guide, use whatever sweetener you have. Dates would be delicious with this and even healthier!
- You will want to use frozen fruit for this as it makes the best ice cream texture since you are not churning it. You will need to cut the bananas and freeze them first before making this.
- This ice cream will last in the freezer for up to 10 - 14 days (though it might be gone sooner!😉)
How Does This Recipe Help With Vegan Weight Gain?
Bananas are a "curvy carbohydrate" and I often use it in my smoothie post strength training. Burro bananas, in particular, are extremely high in potassium so this helps with muscle cramps!
If you want, add some whole hemp seeds to it which will give you additional calories and protein. You could eat this instead of drinking a post-workout smoothie!
How Does This Recipe Help With Vegan Weight Loss?
You can make this recipe apart of your vegan weight loss plan by:
- Use fewer bananas and more strawberries as strawberries are lower in calories.
- Use less agave nectar or if you aren't on a strict "Alkaline" diet, use monkfruit sugar.

- Once frozen add to an 8 cup food processor, along with frozen strawberries, sea moss gel, agave nectar, hemp milk, and key lime juice.

- You can either serve this as-is for soft-serve ice cream or cover it freeze for a minimum of 4 hours.
