Dairy-Free Vegan Kulfi With Broken Wheat: A Kid-Friendly Recipe for Dieters, Weight Watchers, Diabetics


If you have been looking for a sugar-free kulfi, which is also vegan, then this nutty dairy-free frozen delight is for you. It's Mother's Day today, and what better way to treat your kids to a frozen delight than a nutty vegan kulfi, which is:


  • dairy free
  • refined sugar free
  • enriched with minerals from jaggery
  • loaded with the goodness of broken wheat/dalia
  • nutritionally dense from almonds

My dear friends, this vegan ice cream is sugar-free, but still not the best choice for a diabetic. However, my dear diabetic friends, do not lose heart here. This nutty dairy-free kulfi has everything you can ask for in a diabetes-friendly recipe, except the jaggery part. So how you can make it diabetic friendly is super simple - omit jaggery and replace it with stevia drops and cinnamon powder to hide the minty stevia flavor. Voila! The vegan kulfi recipe works equally well for dieters and weight watchers. Hey, did I mention it is a kid-friendly recipe too?

Here's what my research says on broken wheat benefits:

Ingredients for Vegan Ice Cream

1/2 cup- cooked dalia (sweet dalia recipe given in the description below)
3 tbsp or more- jaggery +1/2 tsp more
10-roasted almonds +2 more (if you have almond butter handy, you may use that -it's easy to make almond butter at home- please check the video shared above for almond butter recipe)
1/2 cup-water
pinch- black salt
2 tbsp- cocoa powder or more (if you want to make it chocolaty - I liked the non-chocolaty part more while hubby loved the inclusion of cocoa)


I had sweet dalia porridge in the morning and kept 1/2cup unsweetened dalia aside. If you are wondering how to cook broken wheat, it's quite simple. Roast dalia in little oil for a vegan recipe or ghee for a non-vegan recipe  and then add water and pressure cook for 4 whistles. The dalia will get swollen and cooked.

Now it is ready to be used for our vegan kulfi.

Here's how to cook dalia porridge:



Take almond butter if you have it handy in a mixer jar or processor along with cooked dalia and jaggery. Run the processor until dalia turns into a sticky paste. At this point, I really wanted to do a taste test and was keen to give this a ladoo shape. But then I dropped the idea, as I had completed my sweet intake quota for the day already and did not want to indulge in another sweet goodness that day. Well, yes, I had sweet dalia porridge for breakfast. Remember, my dear friends, I have stopped buying white sugar completely - instead, I opt for jaggery, raw cane sugar, honey, and stevia.

So you can make dalia ladoos at this stage. Remember, it will be very sticky at this point. So it is a good idea to add more of nutty powder or even desiccated coconut powder or even my favorite oats to this mix if you want to make ladoos here and not the vegan kulfi.

If you are keen to go for a chilled delight, then forget ladoos and jump onto the next step.

If you do not have almond butter handy, worry not. We can still make this dairy-free kulfi. All you need to do is add roasted almonds to the grinder along with jaggery and dalia. Run the processor.

Next, add black salt. I have stopped using normal salt these days and instead use mineral salt and black salt. Mineral salt or Himalayan pink salt has more than 84 trace minerals, including iodine, which we get from common salt. So why use normal white salt, which raises the risk of your blood pressure spike?

Okay, so next add water, as we want the vegan kulfi to be of a flowing consistency. Run the processor again until you get a silky smooth finish.

At this stage, divide the batter into two parts.
Keep kulfi moulds ready with roasted slivered nuts at the bottom. Reserve a few nuts for the chocolate part.

Pour half of the batter into the kulfi moulds. Freeze immediately.

Keep the remaining batter in the processor and add cocoa powder. Take a taste test. If you find it little less sweet after the addition of cocoa, please add extra jaggery powder. Else, move onto the final stage.

After half an hour, the frozen kulfi should be slightly set. Now add the remaining nuts on top and then pour the cocoa batter to complete the dairy-free kulfi bar.

Freeze the bars for 5-6 hours and enjoy a nutty vegan ice cream. Keep the dalia kulfi secret to yourself unless everyone has relished the vegan frozen delight.

It's time to take their comments or compliments. Next, reveal the secret :) You are going to get a pat on your back.

Trust me, this is one of the best ways to use leftover dalia porridge. Although I have used the unsweetened part of cooked dalia, this recipe would work with ready-to-eat dalia as well. If you have some leftover dalia porridge, it's time to experiment with it in the form of a frozen delight.

I am sure nobody would believe your words if you reveal the secret of dalia kulfi.
So what are you waiting for?

Give your loved ones a healthy kulfi, which is

  • vegan
  • dairy free
  • refined sugar-free
  • oh so nutty and delicious
  • enriched with vitamin E and calcium from almonds

On top of it, the nutty vegan kulfi requires no heating, no stirring - just mix, blend, and set to freeze.
Can a sugar-free kulfi recipe get easier than this?

Cookies! Healthy cookies for kids and elders on my mind always! Cookies without baking powder/soda,/maida. Oats cookies with a nutrient punch from almonds and whole grains.

Recently, there is a Sunfeast advertisement on Moms Magic cookies. This has attracted my attention. So what happened next is history.
