Christmas in New Zealand is usually just a little warm to serve a traditional Christmas pud. Try our twist on the classic, for a refreshing and festive dessert fit for a Kiwi Summer!

Tip: For an adult version, try adding two tablespoons of rum or brandy to your orange and fruit mix. Let it soak overnight before adding to your ice cream - yum!  

Prep time: 10 minutes
Freeze time: At least 2 hours 


  • 1 cup Pams Fruit Cake Mix 
  • Zest & juice of ½ an orange 
  • 1/3 cup Pams Walnuts, roughly chopped  
  • 70g Pams Finest Dark Chocolate Block, finely chopped 
  • 1 tub Pams Finest Vanilla Ice Cream, softened slightly 


  1. Combine the fruit cake mix, orange juice and zest in a large mixing bowl. Let it soak for at least five minutes.  
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and quickly fold the fruit mix through the ice cream. Using a metal spoon will make this easier. 
  3. Spoon the ice cream mixture into a loaf tin or ice cream container and freeze until firm - at least 2 hours. 

Makes 6-8 servings.
