Vegan Ice Cream - Hidden Cauliflower
Vegan Ice Cream - Steam the Cauliflower
Vegan Ice Cream - Soak the Cashew Nuts
Vegan Ice Cream - Add the ingredients to the blender
Vegan Ice Cream - Blitz the mixture
Vegan Ice Cream - Freeze the mixture


  • 1 small Cauliflower, leaves removed
  • 1 cup Cashews
  • 1 tin Coconut Milk, cream only
  • 2 tbsp Pure Maple Syrup
  • 2 tbsp Coconut Flour
  • 2 tbsp melted Coconut Oil
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Bean Paste
  • 1/2 tsp Almond Extract
  • 1 pinch Sea Salt
  • 1-2 tsp Xylitol or Stevia Sweetener (optional)


  1. Wash the Cauliflower, and cut into small florets. Steam the cauliflower until soft – about 15 minutes.
  2. While the cauliflower is steaming, place the cashews into a small bowl and cover in boiling water. Leave to soak for about 15 minutes.
  3. Once the cauliflower is cooked and the cashews soaked, drain the cashews and place them both into a food processor with all the other ingredients.
  4. Place the lid of the processor and blitz the mix for a few minutes until very smooth and creamy. You will probably need to scrape the sides a few times to ensure it is all processed properly.
  5. Pour the mixture into a loaf tin, then smooth it out using the back of a spoon. Cover the mix with grease proof paper before leaving it in the freezer for at least 3 hours, or overnight preferably.
  6. When you are ready to serve, take the ‘nice-cream’ out of the freezer and leave to defrost for about 20 minutes. Scoop & serve!

Serving Suggestion

Why not try crumbling chopped nuts, fresh fruit or drizzling honey over the top of your dairy free ice cream?
