So you know the best thing about these Whipped Biscoff and Chocolate Cream Parfaits?

You can freeze the leftovers and turn them into ice cream.

But wait.  That’s not even the best part.

The BEST part?

You can do this WITHOUT an ice cream maker!

If you didn’t just shriek with excitement over that you’re dead to me.

Okay no you’re not, I still love you.

But honestly, this is good.  You should believe me.  And be excited!

I never felt left out for not having an ice cream maker until this summer.  In fact, I spent the majority of Fall searching for THE PERFECT doughnut pan, and when I finally got it, I felt like life was complete.

Then summer came and all the cool food bloggers who had ice cream makers could make their own homemade ice cream and frozen yogurts and I was just left to drool over it and add, then take out (then add, then take out, then add, then take out, then add) a variety of different ice cream makers to my Amazon.com cart.

Eventually I decided I would just put it in the “save for later” area – that way I didn’t have to deal with making the ‘adult’ decision not to spend $60 on something that I didn’t really need – even though really, I need it.

Need as in, I needed to have an L.L. Bean backpack with my initials on it in middle school that I could wear so low on my back that it would actually bump against my butt with each step that I took.

Need as in, I needed to get the same exact haircut and color as Kristin Cavallari on Laguna Beach and it didn’t matter that my hair was long, curly and brown because cutting it short and dying it blonde just had to be done.


But then that need changed – just as suddenly as my need for an L.L. Bean backpack morphed into a need for a NorthFace and my need for Kristin’s haircut turned into a life-long scar that lead to a two-year-long fear of ever cutting and/or dying my hair again.

It changed because I discovered ice cream was possible without an ice cream maker.  And if that can’t turn a need around, I don’t know what can.*

Whipped Chocolate Biscoff Ice Cream (adapted from Martha Stewart)


  1. Put leftovers (or an entire batch!) of the Whipped Biscoff and Chocolate Cream Parfaits into a tupperware.
  2. Swirl together until semi-well combined
  3. Freeze for up to 3 hours (or until well-set)
  4. Scoop well-set mixture into ice cream cones

Start scooping ladies and gentlemen…you need to.

* It should be noted that the ice cream maker is still sitting in the “save for later” area of my Amazon.com cart.  When need becomes want, that’s where things go.

    loving these recipes. Your parfait presentations way outdid Martha Stewart’s!

    • Cait

      Aw thanks Deb! :)

    these look so good and those buckets are too cute!

    • Cait

      Thanks! :) I got the buckets at Michael’s for like $2!

    LL Bean backpacks with initials were a WAY OF LIFE in our school, right??

    Also I was always an LC girl, myself. She is a hair icon! Did you really try the Kristen cut??? I have no memory of this!

    • Cait

      Haha yes!! They were.

      And yeah, sadly I did. It was horrendous. I came home from the salon, cried and made my mom die it back and then wouldn’t cut my hair again for 2 years. I didn’t leave the house much so maybe that’s why :)

      • aja

        We’ve all been there. My lowest was when I tried to strip my hair after dying it dark and it turned out orange. I looked like Garfield and had to pay a fortune to fix it.

        • Cait

          I never knew that happened to you!! It makes me feel a lot better than I’m not alone though. Remember your brush tool thing that you plugged into the wall and brushed your hair with and it was supposed to straighten it? I vividly remember walking into your room and you using that and my thinking how much I needed it too.

          • aja

            That thing sucked. I feel like our generation got really crappy hair tools. Either that or it just took me 20 years to find out what a flat iron was! Hahaha, aw Caitlyn, I miss you. Come backkkk!

          • Cait

            Haha I know – we really did. All the good stuff came out later one our awkward years were somewhat over. It was really unfair. I miss you too!!!

    This looks great!!! I also went through the “Why am I not cool like all these other food bloggers with their fancy ice cream machines?” phase this summer. I remedied it by paying large sums of money to Ben & Jerry, though. lol

    • Cait

      Hahaha – yup! That was pretty much what I did too only at FroYo shops :) It works too!

  • http://www.whatkellysaid.com Kelly

    I really need to try Biscoff, don’t I? Love your presentation..as always…perfection!

    • Cait

      Yes you definitely do need to try it! I think (hope!) you will love it! I prefer it much better baked in things than alone (it’s a little too sweet alone and I know you don’t have much of a sweet tooth) :)

    I was trying to ignore that parfait because I have a serious Biscoff addiction problem and I can’t eat it right now… but OMG this ice cream is sending me over the edge. It needs to happen on my next cheat day. Amazing creation, Cait!

    • Cait

      Thanks Laura! Let me know how you like it if you try it – totally worth using your cheat day for in my opinion! ;)

  • Margaret

    Ummmm, I think I love you.
    And I seriously laughed out loud at the LL Bean backpack comment. That was totally me, too!

    • Cait

      Haha – I love that you got that! :)

  • http://rachrachbobach.wordpress.com Rachel

    I’m loving all these recipes lately :)

    • Cait

      I’m so glad! :)

  • Grace

    Probably every girl goes through one life-changing haircut (good or bad, but mostly the later). Good thing any experience can make us stronger ;)

    • Cait

      Haha exactly…or at least wiser! :)

  • http://swankydietitian.com Kristen @ Swanky Dietitian

    Oh my gosh, this looks amazing! I am at work right now (reading blogs, shh!) and wishing I could enjoy a scoop of this. :)
    I was always wanting to look like LC. I definitely copied a few of her outfit ideas on the show.

    • Cait

      Haha I’ve been there before – your secret is safe with me :) Wish I could send you a scoop through the computer!!

      And HAHA – yes! I’m so glad I’m not alone there. I totally did the same!
