Dom Pedro

Dom Pedro ~ thick & smooth, BEST drinking dessert !

You will find a Dom Pedro on just about any South-African restaurant's dessert menu. It is however a little different from restaurant to restaurant in that some use Amarula Liqueur and others would use Kahlua Liqueur.

I prefer Amarula as I think it is the most wonderful, exotic liqueur around ! It has been said that the Marula fruit {the overripe fruits} falls from the trees in the wild ... the elephants then eat it and well, let's just say they're a happy bunch after a Marula treat ;-)

This is one of the easiest desserts which you can drink, although you might get a light bout of brainfreeze should you drink too quickly.

So thick and frothy ! One really just want to sip away after a hearty meal !


Serves 4


4 cups Vanilla Ice-Cream, slightly softened

1/2 cup Amarula Liqueur  {or Kahlua}

3/4 cup Fresh Cream  {double cream/thick cream}

1 Flake Chocolate Bar, crumbled  {or any shaved Chocolate}


1.) Place the Ice-Cream, Liqueur and Cream in a blender - blitz until combined.
2.) Pour into serving glasses and sprinkle with Chocolate flakes/crumbs.

Serve immediately.

  1. I have kahula but now I want to try the elephant love potion lol I'm intrigued wonder if I can get it here. Dom Pedro sounds yummy

  2. This looks quite tasty, I have never heard of Amarula. That's funny about the elephants!

  3. I have Amarula in my bar cabinet! I use it for chocolate martinis..but this looks wonderful as I need cream!

  4. Yum yes please! I've had the Amarula and it is so good, but I've never had it like this. Thanks for a yummy recipe, can't wait to try!

  5. Good Morning Linda, I love Amarula. A South African friend introduced me to Amarula when I lived in Cyprus. It was pretty hard to get hold of at the time, but when it did arrived on the shelves, it disappeared very quickly. This dessert looks very enjoyable and one I know I will love. I have to say Linda, I agree with the elephants... Amarula is divine.
    Best Wishes
