Cheat’s Frozen Cocyo Christmas Puddings

This recipe was borne from a time when Christmas was quickly approaching all-too-fast and I had not yet shopped or cooked for Christmas (result of catering everyone else’s festive parties!)…which leads to the need for ‘cheats’ methods to make Christmas happen!

Evidently, am a mad fan of many things frozen and sweet, so it’s only inevitable that this recipe became a part of our Christmas dessert action too.

Most of you will have the ingredients for this Cheats Frozen Coyo Christmas Pudding, at most the mixed spice might be out but if that’s the case just up the cinnamon and nutmeg slightly to cover it.

It’s a great option for a hot Aussie Chrissie celebration, with all the flavours of pudding still, but creamy, yet no cream because coyo!

Cheat’s Frozen Cocyo Christmas Puddings

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Freezing Time: 8 hours
Total Time: 8 hours 10 minutes



  • In a medium sized mixing bowl combine coconut yoghurt, raisins, figs, spices, maple, coconut, orange zest, walnuts, cacao nibs and macadamias and mix well to combine.
  • Pour into 1 cup ramekins or tea cups (I used tea cups) lined with cling wrap and fold cling wrap over the top of each.
  • Set in freezer overnight.
  • The following day, remove frozen puddings from cling wrap, drizzle with melted chocolate and top with macadamia nuts.
  • Allow to thaw for 5 minutes or so before serving. The chocolate will stay frozen not to worry! Enjoy.
