How to make Ube Ice Candy
Do you want to give your kiddos a summer tropical delight? Then this Ube Ice Candy Recipe is perfect to compliment the heat of summer days in the Philippines. Also, this cooler will satisfy their cravings for sweet tooth and cold foodstuff.
The Ube Ice Candy is made with Ube Halaya, all-purpose cream, sugar and milk. Its taste will just come light after mixing and preparing the ingredients to get froze. If you want something sweeter, then you just have to add more sugar and milk. On the other hand, if you want the flavor of the Ube to dominate, adding more Ube Halaya will bring out the taste that you have been looking for.
We also recommend that you try these famous Filipino cold treats, such as Ube Ice Cream, Buko Ice Candy, Ube Cheese Icebox Cake, Mango Ice Candy, Pineapple Cherry Icebox Cake, Mango Sorbetes, Fruit Ice Drop, Mango Ice Drop, Avocado Sorbetes, Mango Float, Frozen Brazo de Mercedes, Fruit Cocktail Icebox Cake and Halo Halo.
