How to Make a Simple Festive Ice Cream


How to Make a Simple Festive Ice Cream

Are you looking for a festive dessert to finish off your Christmas meal?  Want an alternative to the traditional Christmas pudding?  Well, we have an easy to make festive ice cream that is delicious on its own or to accompany a mince pie or two!

To be honest, we have a difference of opinion over what our Christmas dessert should be.  two family members love a traditional Christmas pudding and two of us prefer something a little lighter!  We have tried different ice creams but have never found one that seemed to have that extra special ‘Christmassy’ taste!  After a little thought and some experimentation, we have a great ice cream that ticks all those festive boxes!

Festive Ice Cream from Witty Hoots


The homely taste of the applesauce is flavoured with the cinnamon and goes well with the creamy vanilla ice cream.  The citrus taste of the candied peel cuts through the richness and adds texture to the dessert as well!

We love this and we plan on having this on Christmas Day!


This is a Christmas Countdown!
