Get ready for a fun and colorful dessert made with purple yams, also known as Ube! This Ube Ice Cream Recipe is easy to make and has a unique flavor everyone will love.
If you have ever seen a vibrant purple dessert or bread, it was most likely made with ube. This Ube Ice Cream Recipe is following that trend and couldn’t be more fun to make. The purple color is so pretty and the flavor is unique as well.
Ube is a purple yam originally from the Philippines. It’s a bright purple sweet potato that’s even sweeter than a regular sweet potato and has a nutty and subtle vanilla flavor. It’s a common ingredient in the Philippians often used in desserts and bread and has recently become more popular thanks to Instagram.
This ice cream has a nutty and vanilla-like flavor that pairs really well with coconut. My first experience with ube was with coconut so I decided to add some toasted coconut to the top of mine.
