The liquid nitrogen freezes the ingredients, producing a unique, all natural, frozen cocktail with no artificial components.

Look for different flavors of liquid nitrogen ice cream offered on the Strip Steak dessert menu! Combining liquid nitrogen with one of Strip Steak’s famous desserts, such as their banana pie or brownie, and the cream mixture, you are left with incredibly smooth ice cream. The silky texture isn’t the only plus! Liquid nitrogen dessert has 40% less fat than the average dessert due to the all-natural ingredients used and the exclusion of egg yolk!
