Christmas Pudding Ice Cream

Another way of using left over Christmas pudding is to make ice cream from it. However, if you wanted to, why not make a Christmas Pudding Ice Cream as an alternative to the traditional way of serving this festive dessert. I bought a value christmas pud from Tesco for about 99p and it was great for this recipe. 
Its a really nice flavour and adds some nice texture to this ice cream. I also added some Baileys to the mix but you could add some brandy if you like or not if children are eating it. I also added some cranberry sauce made from fresh cooked cranberries, for some extra tanginess. 
I then used the christmas pudding container to put my ice cream into to make a christmas pudding shaped dessert – again this is optional. I mean, presentation wise it looks great but if you just place it all in a 1 litre plastic tub it still tastes as good! My bowl wasnt quite large enough so I had to add some ice cream to a small plastic tub aswell.
This is a simple recipe for ice cream which I discussed here
Serves 8 – 10
(makes 1 litre)
You Will Need
1/2 tin of condensed milk (175g)
300ml double cream
2 tbsp Baileys Irish Cream – optional
125g cooked christmas pudding – broken up into small pieces
2 tbsp cooked cranberry puree
Whip the cream, condensed milk (and Baileys) in a large bowl until soft peaks form
Add the christmas pudding and cranberry puree and whisk again for about 30 seconds
In your container of choice pour in the ice cream – please note that if you do use a bowl shaped tub, line with cling film or grease proof paper so you can remove it easily.
Place in the freezer for at least 6 hours , or overnight.
Then remove when you are ready to eat
(mine has ‘crease’ lines because my grease proof paper got a bit crinkled in the tub!)
Then simply cut a slice to eat
It can be returned to the freezer if you don’t eat all in one go and before it melts of course!
It looks pretty and reminds me of tutti fruitti ice cream to look at. Its a delicious festive dessert and so easy to make.
