  • Add violet food color gel little by little and mix until well blended, you can add more coloring to achieve your desired hue. Taste test your ube mixture if you wish to be a little bit sweeter just add a tablespoon of condensed milk one at a time and whisk again until well blended. You can do it manually with a whisk if you want, but I find it easy to use a hand mixer.

Take off from the freezer and mix it again with the electric mixer until smooth, cover and freeze for another hour. Again, do it one more time and at this point you can add a cheese or macapuno strings if you want extra flavor and freeze until it is ready to be served.
