Somebody pinch me!! Last week, I got 20 whole pounds of my FAVORITE purple sweet potatoes and let me just say – I’m on cloud nine! Growing up in Indonesia, I grew up eating these for BREAKFAST!! Ask my mom— she and I could down a few pounds of these at any given day — all before 9am!!

Anyways, when I moved to the US, I kept looking for these purple stokes (aka ube), and the only brand I know to sell them is Frieda’s Produce (which i usually buy at my local Sprouts or Natural Grocers).

My favorite way to eat them has always been to roast them until they’re gooey and perfectly caramelized, but with this strangely warm November we’re having in Lawrence, I thought it’d be fun to make some Ube Ice Cream! And i mean, look at that color!

    yes a billion times to this ube ice cream! since going to NYC i’ve been obsessed with ube, and the ice cream was my favorite. So when I found your recipe, I had to make it immediately and it was as good as I would’ve hoped for!

    I had so much ube desserts on my trip to Asia and now I crave it all the time! I had to order the ube extract online but it was sooooo worth the wait – this was an easy ice cream recipe that hits the spot!
