  • 120 g (¾ cup) raw cashews
  • 250 ml (1 cup) water
  • 400 ml (14 oz) tin full fat coconut milk
  • 200 g (7 oz / ¾ cup + 1 Tbsp) smooth Biscoff spread
  • 120 g (⅔ cup) light brown soft sugar
  • ¼ tsp xanthan gum (optional)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp salt


  • Cover the cashews in boiling water and set aside to soak for at least half an hour then drain. (You can also soak them in cold water overnight instead).
  • Place the soaked cashews in a blender along with the 250ml of water and blend until very smooth.
  • Add the full fat coconut milk, biscoff, light brown soft sugar, xanthan gum (if using), vanilla extract and salt and continue to blend until the mixture is completely smooth. There should be no hint of grittiness if you rub some of the mixture between your fingers.
  • Pour into a bowl, cover and refrigerate until completely cold.
  • Give the chilled ice cream base a good whisk then churn it in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturers instructions. (See above for instructions on how to churn it without an ice cream maker).
  • Once it has reached soft serve consistency transfer it to a container. Place in the freezer for a couple of hours to firm up before serving.
    Once the ice cream is fully frozen it will be quite firm; let it sit out at room temperature for a bit before scooping.
