Christmas Ice Cream Pudding

By November 14, 2016Christmas, Desserts, Events, Recipes

Like many South Australians, the annual Christmas Pageant heralds the start of the Christmas countdown for the Drakes Supermarkets team – our decorations go up, and our aisles are lined with all your Christmas goodies. Must-haves on every shopping list? Hams, fruit mince pies and the ubiquitous traditional Christmas pudding.

Let’s face it though – on a hot summer’s day the last thing you want is a heavy pudding – or to stand over a steaming hot stove waiting for it to warm up. Our friends at Bulla have come up with the best kind of compromise – a Christmas Ice Cream Pudding! This deliciously creamy dessert is sure to be a show-stopper with its creamy texture and fruity flavours. We’re positive this modern pudding will become the new tradition.


  • 1L Bulla Creamy Classics Vanilla Icecream
  • 200g cooked Christmas Pudding, Crumbled
  • 2 Tbsp rum or brandy
  • 75g maraschino cherries, drained
  • 50g unsalted pistachio nuts, chopped
  • 50g raisins
  • Chocolate shell topping (e.g Ice Magic)


  1. Line a pudding basin or load tin with cling film.
  2. Remove the Bulla Creamy Classics Vanilla ice cream from the freezer and leave to soften for 15 minutes.
  3. Turn into a bowl and break up with a fork – it should be softened but not completely melted.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients and mix quickly together.
  5. Pack into the lined tin and freeze until firm.
  6. Turn out and decorate with chocolate shell topping. Serve immediately.

For a sweet twist, use Bulla Creamy Classics White Chocolate and Raspberry icecream. For this recipe and more, visit
