Here I am posting another common Filipino ice cream mostly unknown to non-Filipinos, the Ube Ice Cream. This ice cream is one of the best sellers in the Philippines due to its unique taste that suits well to the Filipino palate as well as it common use in a dessert called Halo Halo. This ice cream’s main ingredient is ube or purple yam, a root crop variant of yam distinguished by its bright lavender colour; it is very common in tropical locations like South America, Africa, Australia and South East Asia. Also called as greater yam, Guyana arrowroot, ten-months yam, water yam or winged yam this root crop is not just used in ice cream but in different dessert items such as cake, milk, jam, cookies, tart and lots more.
I know this might sound weird to others but again you have to trust me as this is a really good ice cream worth trying.
