No, it's not ice fream, but a dessert my mom used to make when we were kids, ages back. It so quick and simple and do not be fooled by the plain ingredients: it's delicious!!! She used Sugar Frosted Flakes for the crust, but that is no longer available (at least not in South Africa).

Ingredients Nutrition

  • Crust

  • 4 cups frosted flakes, sweet sugared cereal, such as Frosties
  • 6 tablespoons very soft butter (about)
  • Filling

  • 1 cup whole milk (8 fluid oz)
  • 1 cup fresh cream
  • 12 teaspoon almond essence
  • 1 (3 1/2 ounce) box vanilla instant pudding mix
  • 2 ounces almonds, flaked, oasted in a pan until golden


  1. Crust:.
  2. Crush the sugared cereal with a rolling pin or use your processor, and mix it with the butter. Chill in the fridge for about 10 minutes.
  3. Using a medium sized pie plate, spread the crumb mixture evenly in the bottom and up the sides, and press down firmly to form a crust. Neaten the edges, and place in freezer to firm.
  4. Filling:.
  5. Mix milk and cream in a mixing bowl and add the almond essence. Sprinkle over the instant pudding mix and whisk well.
  6. Pour this mixture into the prepared crust.
  7. Freeze the pie for about 4 hours or longer, until firm. (Don't freeze until rock hard).
  8. Before serving, take it out and let defrost somewhat. Scatter the toasted almonds on top.

This cake is about as kid-friendly as it can possibly get! My husband and I were enjoying a more adult dessert after supper (Recipe #215133), so I quickly made this for the kids. I didn't want to make it dairy so instead of the milk and cream I used two cartons of Rich Whip, and margarine instead of the butter in the crust. I also used chocolate pudding mix because that's what I had in the house. No almond, Sushiman is allergic, so we had Chinese pecans, which are sugared and went perfectly with the pie. I stuck the pie in the back of the freezer for about 2 hours only and it was just fine. I am soooo going to make this again and again, it's so fast and easy and the family adored it! Thanks Zurie!
