This banana soft serve vegan ice cream recipe makes a creamy vegan dessert with tropical flavors! Healthy soft serve, made in a blender! Paleo + Whole30 options, too.



For the ice cubes

  • 3/4 c to 1 cup coconut milk or coconut cream
  • Ice tray
  • 1/2 cup mango or pineapple slices – peeled

For the banana soft serve

  • 1 frozen banana
  • unsweetened coconut flakes or shreds to garnish
  • 1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger or 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • [url] Homemade coconut whipped cream topping ∞[/url] – optional but so GOOD!
  • optional 12 tbsp maple syrup to sweeten more
  • optional extracts and/or spices – 1/2 tsp vanilla, coconut, rum (not paleo), cinnamon, etc.


  1. Peel and cut your fruit.
  2. In a small ice tray, pour your coconut milk into the ice tray cubes.
  3. Place your fruit slices inside the milk cubes.
  4. Freeze coconut milk and mango/pineapple slices together in ice tray cubes.
  5. Once frozen add the cubes and a frozen banana to a blender. Add any other spices or extracts.
  6. Blend well. Be patient. Takes a little time. Scoop down edges of blender if need be.
  7. Mix in optional honey or maple syrup once blended for extra sweetness.
  8. Garnish with unsweetened coconut flakes
  9. Top with Homemade coconut whipped cream topping that has been placed in freezer for 30 minutes so it hardens (see photo in post). Topping is optional, and addicting!
  10. Serve immediately


  • Be patient with the blending, it will get there, just let the blender go for a while and keep pushing down the sides if stuck. It’s worth it. Probably blends for 5 minutes or so.
