Full of goodness, our Coconut & Hidden Cauliflower Dairy Free Ice Cream is a delicious take on a classic vanilla ice cream. It’s simple to make, delicious, and full of goodness!


  • 1 Cauliflower, leaves removed
  • 1 cup Cashews
  • 400ml Coconut Milk, cream only
  • 2 tbsp Pure Maple Syrup
  • 2 tbsp Coconut Flour
  • 2 tbsp Coconut Oil, melted
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Bean Paste
  • 0.5 tsp Almond Extract
  • Pinch of Sea Salt
  • 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!

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