  • 1 cup nut milk (made using our Nut Mylk Base)
  • 3 tbsp agave syrup or sweetener of choice (rice malt syrup etc.)
  • 2 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 2 tbsp cornflour
  • ½ tsp arrowroot
  • pinch of turmeric for the colour



Combine oats, arrowroot biscuits, desiccated coconut and salt in a mixing bowl

Add coconut oil and agave and mix well

Press into mini cake tins or patty cakes. If using patty cakes, make sure there is a ridge so the custard can sit within the crust

Pop in freezer to set

Place milk, cornflour and arrowroot in a small pot, and stir until completed blended

Turn stove on to a medium heat

Add agave syrup, turmeric powder and vanilla bean paste

With a whisk, continually stir, and custard will gradually thicken. Once it has thickened to your desired consistency remove from heat. This should only take a few minutes, so don’t take your eyes off the prize

Remove base from freezer, and fill with custard. Top with anything you choose. We went with fresh strawberries
