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.
