  • 1 medium head of cauliflower or 4 cups of riced cauliflower
  • 2 cups almond milk or dairy-free milk of your choice
  • 6 tbsp coconut sugar or 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp tapioca starch plus more, if needed
  • 1 cup toasted nuts and/or seeds
  • Optional toppings: sliced fresh fruits, dried fruits, toasted coconut chips, cacao nibs, chocolate chips, nut butter, etc


  • If you are using a whole cauliflower head, remove the leaves off the cauliflower and cut off the florets from the roots. Use a cheese grater or a food processor with a grater attachment, and grate the cauliflower into the size of rice.
  • Add almond milk, coconut sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla extract to the Instant Pot and stir together. 
  • Add the riced cauliflower on top of the liquid.
  • Seal the lid, make sure the pressure valve is set to close, and set the Instant Pot to "Manual" for 2 minutes. 
  • Once it finishes to a beep, immediately release the pressure valve and open the lid. 
  • Sprinkle tapioca starch over the "oatmeal" and stir until thickened. Add more tapioca starch if you prefer the texture a bit thicker. 
  • Transfer to bowls and top with nut, seeds, and/or your favorite toppings. Serve warm or chilled.


If you are making this ahead of time, don't add the toppings until you are ready to eat it.
