This delicious twist on a classic ice cream flavor gives dairy the boot and calls for caramelized biscuit spread to make the flavor extra epic!

This recipe comes with an option quickly prepare the soaked raisins, however as this recipe requires two bouts of chilling, you're best off leaving the raisins to soak up the rum for as long as possible - many recipes call for days to weeks of soaking, so go for as long as you dare! The longer you soak, the sweeter the final product. Adding in (vegan-friendly!) Lotus Biscoff spread adds an extra dimension of deliciousness to this dreamy dessert.

Cream Base

    • 3/4 cup soy milk
    • 1/2 cup soy milk powder
    • 1/4 cup coconut oil
    • 2 tablespoons sunflower oil
    • 1 tablespoon white vinegar

Ice Cream

    • 1 1/4 cup soy milk
    • 3/4 cup biscoff spread
    • 1/4 cup golden syrup
    • 1 tablespoon vanilla essence
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
    • pinch of guar gum or xanthan gum

Soaked Raisins

    • 175g raisins
    • 150ml dark rum


Place the rum and raisins in a saucepan and bring to the boil over medium heat. Turn the heat off after 2 or so minutes, and allow to sit at least until cool, or for up to several days for best results.

To make the ice cream, place the milk, vinegar and milk powder in a blender and briefly blend together. With the motor running, slowly add the coconut and sunflower oil until the mixture becomes thick. Add the remaining ingredients and blend again until combined. Transfer the mixture to the fridge until completely chilled.

Place the mixture in an ice-cream machine and churn according to the manufacturer’s instructions for 25–30 minutes. Pour the ice cream into a freezer-friendly container and stir through the prepared raisins. Cover the surface of the ice cream with plastic wrap. Make sure the container is airtight to avoid ice crystals forming.

Freeze overnight, then scoop and serve.
