Although Salcombe Dairy
is known for being the best remedy to cool you down on a hot summer's day, they have also created a range of Christmas flavours, including Christmas Pudding ice cream. Shaped like a traditional pudding, it comes with an indulgent brandy butter ice cream topping and is a great way to finish off a Christmas meal.
Made using fresh full cream milk and double cream, delivered every morning straight from a local farm a stone's throw away, the milk and cream is combined with brandy, dried fruits and mixed spices. Full of flavour, it is best enjoyed either as a dessert on its own, or as an accompaniment to your warm festive mince pies and seasonal chocolate Yule log.
