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.

  • Test the taste of your mixture and add sugar if needed.
  • Use a funnel and ladle and pour the mixture into each Ice candy wrapper about 5 inches high.

  • Arrange Ice Candy in the freezer and freeze until frozen.
  • Serve your Ube Ice Candy anytime and enjoy!

    I have never heard of such things. I looked up the recipe for the Ube Halaya and it sounds quite yummy, so a cold ice candy version sounds like a perfect summer treat. I will try it 🙂

    I remember my childhood when my aunts used to make different flavors of ice cream specially during summer and they would sell them and put signage in front of the house gate. They make varieties of flavor like langka(jackfruit), buko shave (young coconut with milk) and red monggo beans with toasted pinipig. I also remember that they don’t use milk for it, they use coconut milk and it is more flavorful. This weekend I will make some ice candies with my kids so they can remember their sweet and cold childhood memories in making ice candies. L:)

    This sounds easy to make. I prefer a creamy frozen desert in the summer. The packaging is perfect for the little ones. No dripping mess.

    Great for kids and adults and you could give them a personal flair, too. I like how you use plastic baggies.
