Christmas pudding ice cream

Sharing is caring!

We shared Christmas Pudding with you recently, and today we have something even better for you to make with some of the left overs – Christmas Pudding Ice Cream!

Ice Cream and Christmas Pudding in one dessert has got to be something that is bound to turn into a firm favourite for those that are looking for ways to use the Christmas Dinner leftovers in creative and fun ways. This doesn’t require too much of the Christmas Pudding to be left either, so you should be able to make it without denying too many of the relatively some of the pudding.

If your household is anything like ours, there are only a few of you that like Christmas pudding anyway, so creating an ice cream from some of the stuff that’s left after the meal on Christmas Day is actually considered to be a bit of a bonus for everyone concerned.

This recipe works fine with gluten free, or some of the other less traditional Christmas puddings, so you don’t need to worry about making sure you have the right pudding either. Whatever pudding you decided to have on the day, should be fine, as long as there is enough left to make the ice cream with.

Ingredients

  • Small tub (500ml) of Vanilla ice cream
  • 100g Xmas pudding – we hope you have some left, and
  • Frozen berries, a handful works perfectly.

The best thing about this recipe is that is takes 5 minutes to prep, and another 5 minutes to make. It is so simple your kids can do it, without you bothering to help them that much at all!

How to make your Christmas pudding ice cream

  1. Take your leftover pudding, and roughly chop it into 1cm cubes. You might need to help the kids here; it isn’t easy estimating cubes of pudding, and it might be a little stodgy to chop too
  2. Remove your Vanilla ice cream from the freezer, and leave it to stand for about 2 minutes so it has thawed slightly
  3. Stir in the Christmas pudding chunks into the ice cream in a big bowl. Your Vanilla ice cream should have thawed sufficiently to make it possible to stir in the pudding chunks quite easily after those 2 minutes,
  4. While you are stirring the chunks in, do be careful, to make sure that you don’t break the chunks up too much,
  5. Serve the ice cream and the Christmas pudding immediately, with a few of the fabulous frozen berries you have on top, and
  6. If you would rather not serve it immediately, you can just pop in back into the tub and serve it later. If you are awesome – you can even pop it into small circular individual tubs for that personal Christmas pudding touch!

Perfect – right?

This is a lovely way to use up some of that leftover Christmas Pud, or to get the kids to eat pudding if they have been a little reticent up until now.

And when else are you able to have a spot of brandy with your ice cream without feeling a little bit guilty?
