Perfect for a hot Aussie Christmas
Here in Australia, Christmas Day is often a hot summer scorcher, so you don't always feel like having a hot Christmas pudding as dessert. One option is to turn the delicious Christmas pudding into an ice-cream dessert so that everyone remains cool and you still get the familiar, traditional taste that we all love.
If you have kids who may not like the strong flavour of Christmas pudding, then you can add just a small amount of the pudding to this dessert, so it isn't too strong. If you love it, like my family does, it will become a delicious Christmas dessert every year. Why don't you give it a try this year? You only need 3 ingredients and then Christmas dessert is sorted!
Ingredients: (Serves 4 - 8, depending on size of servings)
1 Litre of good quality vanilla ice-cream
700 gram Christmas pudding Bottle of Ice Magic
What To Do:
Step 1: Spoon the vanilla ice-cream into a large bowl and add 3/4 of the Christmas pudding. Mix to combine. (Add the rest of the pudding, or use less, depending on your love of pudding flavour).
Step 2: Take 4 ramekins or small bowls and line them with cling film. Spoon in the ice cream to the top and wrap the whole bowl tightly in foil. Put in the freezer.
Step 3: When ready to serve, unwrap the foil, turn the bowl upside down on a plate, remove the bowl and cling film and then drizzle with Ice Magic. Add any decoration you wish.
Note: If you don't have enough room in your freezer for 4 small bowls at this time of year, you can also spoon the ice-cream back into the ice-cream tub to freeze and serve as normal (not all of it will go back in, so you will just have to eat some now!)
That's it! Dessert is all organised with just 3 ingredients and in 3 easy steps. Enjoy!
Combine the ice-cream and pudding, then freeze in a ramekin or small bowl...
