Christmas Pudding

For as long as I can remember, we have always enjoyed a frozen pudding as part of our Christmas lunch.
They look beautiful all plated up, they taste delicious and they are really simple to make.

Last night I whipped one up to take to my sis-in-laws.We'll be going to her place for Christmas dinner.
Our niece has Coeliac Disease and because there are not many ingredients in this dessert, I was able to find gluten free. I hope you enjoy it Pippi.

Frozen Christmas Pudding

2L tub of Vanilla icecream
box of bakery meringues
450g packet of frozen mixed berries 
packet of white choc chips

Leave the icecream sit at room temp a while. You want it to be just soft enough to mix ingredients through.
Put ice cream into a large mixing bowl.
Add meringues-I used about 2/3 of  100g box and mix into icecream, chopping through some of them.
Add a cup of choc bits and mix through.
Finally, add the frozen berries. I save them for last because they need to stay frozen and in tact.
Just stir them though gently.

Line a pudding tin with glad wrap (for easy removal later)
Pour mix into tin and press down firmly with metal spoon
Place in the freezer

To serve, place on a plate and drizzle with a berry coulis  and maybe a few berries for good measure.

I've never had frozen Christmas pud. I'd love to try it - I'm sure I'd like it more than the normal Christmas pud. Sounds yummy!

Oh YUM! That sounds awesome! And so much better for the Aussie climate than boiled pudding!
