This chai spiced ice cream parfait is a fun Fall dessert made with delicious layers of crushed waffle cones, chai spiced ice cream, whipped cream, pecans, and caramel sauce layered in a tall glass.



  • Chai Spiced Ice Cream:
    • 600 mL whipping cream
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 300 mL sweetened condensed milk
  • Whipped Cream:
    • 200 mL whipping cream
    • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • One box of Joy Cone Waffle Cones, roughly crushed
  • 200g pecans, roughly chopped
  • One batch homemade caramel sauce


To make the chai spiced ice cream:

  1. In a large bowl, beat the whipping cream, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and vanilla extract with a whisk or hand mixer until it reaches soft peaks.
  2. With one hand, slowly drizzle in the condense milk while folding it into the whipped cream with a spatula in the other hand. Fold just until all the condensed milk has been combined. The cream will thin out a bit but will still be thick and fluffy.
  3. Pour the mixture into a loaf tin. Top with a dusting of spices and some crushed up waffle cone (optional). Cover the tin with plastic wrap and freeze overnight.

To make the whipped cream:

  1. In a large bowl, beat the whipping cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract with a whisk until it reaches soft peaks. Set aside.

To put the parfait together:

  1. Place the pieces of one crushed up waffle cone in the bottom of the glass.
  2. Add a layer of whipped cream on top.
  3. Sprinkle in a layer of chopped pecans.
  4. Add a thin layer of caramel sauce.
  5. Add 2-3 scoops of ice cream depending on the size of your glasses.
  6. Top the parfait with extra waffle cone pieces, a dusting of cinnamon, and a drizzle of caramel sauce.
