  • 1 1/2 cup Ube Halaya
  • 3 cups Fresh Milk
  • 1 cup all purpose cream
  • 2 tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup sugar or to taste
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk

Materials you need:


  • In a saucepan, combine cornstarch into 1 cup fresh milk and stir until dissolved.
  • Heat the milk mixture on medium heat until it starts to boil and turn to low and simmer for about 3 minutes just until it thickens like syrup. (Adding cornstarch is a method to make the ice becomes smooth and soft).
  • Pour mixture into a large mixing bowl, add the sugar and stir until fully dissolves.
  • Let it cool down a little bit before adding the remaining ingredients.
  • Add in sweetened condensed milk, fresh milk, all purpose cream and vanilla extract if desired.
  • Stir thoroughly and add Ube Halaya then mix well.
  • 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.
  • If you don’t have a funnel you can use a pitcher.
  • Tie the top tightly and trim the plastic if desired.
  • Arrange Ice Candy in the freezer and freeze until frozen.
  • Serve your Ube Ice Candy anytime and enjoy!
