Multi-Grain Breakfast Ice Cream

PREP: 10 minutes (plus chilling & churning time) | YIELD: 4 servings (1 quart base)

Spoil yourself with ice cream for breakfast! This recipe elevates a dreary porridge to something crave-worthy without sacrificing nutrients. Sprinkle generously with Sean Sherman’s caramelized seeds and lots of fresh highbush blueberries. Or blend with a frozen banana and additional oat milk for a terrific morning milkshake. This ice cream can also be made with upcycled oats from homemade oat milk.


  • 1 cup Cooked wild rice
  • 1 cup Rolled oats (or strained up-cycled oats from DIY oat milk)
  • 1 ½ cups Homemade oat milk (or store bought)
  • ½ cup Wild rice cooking stock (or oat milk)
  • 4-6 Tablespoons Sunflower seed butter (or other nut butter)
  • ¼ cup Maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon Ground cinnamon (optional)
  • ½ teaspoon Vanilla extract (optional)
  • Pinch of salt (if the seed butter is unsalted)


Garnish Ingredients:



  1. In a high-speed blender, purée all of the ingredients.
  2. Refrigerate until well chilled.
  3. Pour into an ice-cream maker and churn according to manufacturer’s instructions.*

*The ice cream base may also be poured into a shallow baking dish, placed in the freezer, and stirred occasionally until semi frozen.



For a breakfast milkshake, blend each serving with ½ a ripened banana and thin out with additional oat milk.

6 Tablespoons of seed butter yields a creamier product and adds an additional protein punch. For a more calorie-friendly product (1 Tablespoon of nut butter contains approximately 100 calories), reduce the amount of nut butter in this recipe from 6 Tablespoons to 4 Tablespoons.
