Purple Yam (Ube) Ice Cream


Ube jam, ube halaya, or halayang ube from the Spanish Jalea Jam is a Philippine dessert made from boiled and mashed purple yam. “Dioscorea alata is locally known as ube, used in pastries, halo-halo and ice cream.”




2 cups heavy cream

1 cup Almond milk

2 tsp. lemon juice

pinch of salt

2 bottles of 12 oz. each Pinoy Fiesta Sweet Purple Yam

red and blue food colors



1. Beat heavy cream with an electric mixer until soft peak forms. Set aside.

2. In another bowl, mix almond milk plus 2 teaspoons lemon juice and a pinch of salt and add the Sweet Purple Yam. When fully combined with an electric mixer, add the heavy cream and add drops of red and blue colors until you get the color you want.

3. Taste and pour in a freezer-safe plastic container and line the top with film of plastic wrap, snap back the cover and freeze overnight. Thaw out for a couple of minutes before scooping and serving.

Masarap! Not too sweet, and I omitted condensed sweetened milk as the purple yam is already quite sweet.
