This is a popular Filipino dessert. My whole family goes crazy for ube ice cream, but the store-bought kind contains preservatives and food coloring. It's very easy to make ube ice cream at home and it tastes better than the ones at the store. I used homemade ube halaya and condensed milk, but they're readily available at the market.
Chill the macapuno in the fridge before adding to your ice cream. Add it to your ice cream when the ice cream is solid. Otherwise, the macapuno will sink to the bottom. Store-bought ice cream has a darker color because of artificial food coloring. Add it if you like, but I like to keep mine natural.
I made it the other day for my boyfriend because he was craving it and he loved it. It is an Awsome recipie. - 21 Jan 2014
