Save money by reducing your Christmas food waste. This is super delicious, and will stop any leftover mince pies going to waste – if you haven’t eaten them all already! 😂

You can actually do this whatever you fancy too, if you have other leftover treats or mince pies are not your thing. It would work just as well with Christmas Pudding, yule log, shortbread or cookies.

Here’s how…

  • Remove the ice-cream from the freezer and allow 15/20 minutes for it to soften.
  • Tip 500ml vanilla ice-cream into a bowl and mix through 4 broken up mince pies (or anything else you have spare) until evenly incorporated.
  • Pop it back into a freezer-proof tub and let it refreeze before serving when you fancy it.

Simple, delicious and reduces Christmas food waste! 😋

This amount will serve 4-6 people.
