How’s your Christmas dinner dessert plans shaping up?

This year The Common Good wants you to ditch the pav and give pudding the flick!  The fundraising arm of the Prince Charles Hospital has over two tonnes of strawberry ice cream left over following this year’s cancelled EKKA, and has just launched their Berry Christmas campaign.

Michael Hornby is the CEO of The Prince Charles Hospital Foundation and told 96five’s Ken & Nicky that a Christmas treat has never come so guilt free!

“We know that this last two tonnes of ice cream, is going to make the greatest possible difference for medical researchers.

“The last dip of this amazing ice cream will be able to support around 600 hours of life saving medical research in the areas of heart disease, lung disease, mental health and dementia.”

Executive Chef of Moda Restaurant, Javier Codina has put a Brisbane spin on the traditional Spanish dessert Catalan Pyjamas.

Families can pre-order a 5 litre tub of premium strawberry ice cream, which is manufactured locally by Lick Ice Cream, and The Common Good have also collected some fantastic recipe ideas from some of Brisbane’s top chefs.

You can order your ice cream now, with pickup available from three locations across Brisbane at Morningside, Paddington and Seventeen Mile Rocks.
