Ube Ice Cream

ed7631eb7bee28fc7be4013f4a27be6b Ube Ice Cream

Purple yam or Ube is one of my favorite flavors when it comes to Filipino desserts, and many of these desserts are baked goods like cakes, and breads. Well, as many of you know, I am still learning how to bake, but I’m getting there. That means we are going to have to settle for the opposite side of the aisle which is making ice cream plus we are getting this weird hot weather lately, so ice cream would be good. Okay, okay I’m working really hard here trying to justify my continued baking disability.

This was also my post at MJ’s Kitchen. My friend MJ invited me to guest post at her beautiful site when she literally renovated her kitchen last year. Well, I hope you enjoy this simple,  fun, and delicious recipe.

    The meaning of the phrase “ice cream” varies from one country to another. Phrases such as “frozen custard”, “frozen yogurt”, “sorbet”, “gelato” and others are used to distinguish different varieties and styles. In some countries, such as the United States, the phrase “ice cream” applies only to a specific variety, and most governments regulate the commercial use of the various terms according to the relative quantities of the main ingredients.

      Hi Diane, It depends on the purple yam that you are using. I purposely used a darker color jam (ube) for a more vibrant color for photo shoot. Thank you and I’m glad that it turned out well for you.
