Ube ice cream is a popular Filipino dessert. The Ube Halaya will be your flavor base so it will give your ice cream a luscious taste . I’m a devotee of making homemade ice creams because it has less synthetic ingredients and more natural flavor.
Combine 1 cup of whipping cream and ube powder in a small pan. Turn heat on medium and let it simmer while stirring, about 2-3 minutes. This step is to rehydrate the ube powder. Transfer to a small bowl and let it cool.
Using a hand mixer or stand mixer, combine ube halaya and the remaining 3 cups of whipping cream. Mix until well combined.
Add the rehydrated ube powder and condensed milk and continue to mix until smooth and well blended.
Pour the mixture into a 9×5-inch loaf pan, and cover tightly.
Place in the freezer for at least 12 hours or overnight before serving.
The ube powder is great flavor enhancer but if you cannot find ube powder, it’s okay to skip this ingredient.
You can always adjust the sweetness level of your ice cream by adding more or lessen the amount of condensed milk.
