Chai Spiced Ice Cream:

  • 600 mL whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 300 mL sweetened condensed milk

Whipped Cream:


To make the chai spiced ice cream

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 for at least 4 hours or overnight.

To make the whipped cream

  • 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

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