Pumpkin Ice Cream and Brownie Parfait

Pumpkin-Ice-Cream-and-Brownie-Parfait

Today, I have for you a Pumpkin Ice Cream and Brownie Parfait that is vegan, dairy-free and gluten-free and 100% delicious!

The entire recipe can be made in about 30 minutes and the only special equipment you need to make this dreamy dessert is an ice cream maker and a Vitamix.

Once you get your ice cream in the machine, you can start on the brownies and  they are both ready right about the same time.

While the pumpkin ice cream and brownies are good by themselves, the combination together is amazing.

The ice cream is raw, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo-friendly and no refined sugars.

And the brownies are super healthy and are vegan, flourless, grain-free,gluten-free, dairy-free and no refined sugars.

Tip #1:  This recipe will make 2 large servings or 4 smaller servings.

    what size glass baking dish do you use for the brownie? Thanks!

    • Karielyn

      Hi there Jennifer! Oops…my bad! That might be helpful to know, right? I used an 8 x 8 glass dish to make them. You won’t be cutting them into normal square brownies, but will be breaking them up into brownie crumbles to sprinkle over the ice cream. And, you might have a little bit left over to enjoy!

      Thank you for the question and I’ll go update the recipe with that information..thanks ;)

      • JennB

        No worries, thanks for the info. I can’t wait for your cookbook to come out! Since I found your website I have been working through recipes and LOVE everything so far. Thank you for all the work you put into your site, it is very appreciated!

  • I’m curious why you’re not using the frozen dessert setting on the Vita-mix and opting for the ice cream making to chill this. I am currently researching Vita-mix for just this purpose so I was really curious as I read through this recipe. This recipe sounds so yummy I hope to try it soon!

    • Karielyn

      Hi there Heidi! I’ve had my Vitamix for over 7 years now and the model I use is an older model and doesn’t have a frozen dessert setting.

      I would love to be able to use that setting and save a step but my faithful Vitamix has been so good to me, I haven’t had a need to upgrade to a newer model!

      Thanks for the question and I hope you enjoy the recipe if you give it a try ;)
