Recipe by Wild Thyme Flour

This is an adaptation of a recipe I created years ago to make it wheat and milk free. Helva is a tahini and sugar based sweet popular in the mediterrenean like greece and malta. I use an ice-cream machine, the kind you have to freeze 24 hours beforehand.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 500 g halva, crumbled
  • 250 ml soya cream
  • 200 ml rice milk
  • 1 tablespoon honey


  1. Leave 100g halva for decoration.
  2. Put the crumbled halva in the blender with the milk and honey, puree.
  3. Add the soya cream and blend till smooth.
  4. chill.
  5. Place in your ice cream machine. ( it takes about 15 minutes on mine).
  6. To serve: Place a scoop of ice cream in a wine glass, drizzle some honey and sprinkle some chopped halva on top.
  7. a sprinkling of slivered almonds or sunflower seed also looks great.
