Christmas ice-cream cake

Few desserts will leave you longing for a second helping like this does.

This just might be the yummiest desserts you'll eat this Christmas. Really! It is so good, it’s dangerous. Creamy, spicy, fruity and crunchy. It’s all of those and more! It’s a sophisticated rum and raisin taste but to trump all, you have the option to use homemade probiotic cultured cream, so you could even consider it good for you. 

For additional divineness, let it sit a while in your bowl (if you can). It’s best when it starts to ooze. Based on an Italian semifreddo, this cream based ice cream comes into its own when half frozen. Allowing it to thaw a while relaxes the fat in the cream, improves the texture and seems to taste, that little bit more ‘perfect’.



If you make this, or any of our recipes, we would love to see your creations. Leave us a comment, or tag a photo using #luvelelife on Instagram.
