  • 2 cups heavy cream, very cold
  • 1 can (14 ounces) condensed milk, chilled
  • 1 cup ube, cooked, mashed and chilled
  • 3 drops ube extract
  • 1 cup macapuno strips, rinsed and drained well


  • In a large bowl, combine heavy cream, condensed milk, and mashed ube. Using a hand mixer at low speed, beat mixture until it begins to thicken.
  • Increase speed to medium and continue to beat for about 8 to 10 minutes or until stiff peaks form.
  • While beating, squeeze a few drops of ube extract until the desired color is achieved.
  • Add macapuno strips and gently fold in to distribute, making sure not to deflate the cream mixture.
  • Transfer mixture into a 9 x 5 loaf pan. Cover with plastic film, lightly pressing the film on the surface of the cream mixture.
  • Freeze for at least 6 hours or overnight. Serve frozen.



For optimal volume, make sure all the ingredients are very cold.
