Ice Cream Christmas Pudding

  • Author: The 4 Blades
  • Yield: 8


Christmas pudding is a classic dessert during the festive season. This tasty ice cream Christmas pudding is a frozen twist and it’s so tasty, you will want to go back for seconds. By using a bit of rum to make the ice cream, you avoid having a frozen solid block of ice and instead get a creamy texture that is easy to slice. Keep in the freezer until serving as dessert for your Christmas lunch.
