Amazing UBE Fruit Salad Dessert

UBE Fruit Salad Dessert

This UBE dessert is a very popular dessert. Ube Ice Cream is made from Purple yams. The very first time I learned about it was when my family was visiting Philippines. My daughter showed me the photo of Halo Halo which had UBE Ice cream. The ice Cream looks purple-because of the purple color in Yams..

So I wanted to make something special for Thanksgiving. I made up this recipe and added the UBE Ice cream on top. I bought this Ice cream from a Philippine market. The fruits and colors seem just ideal for the holiday season in this recipe. It's a great time to make it during the fall season while persimmons are available. I have used Fuyū persimmons as a topping so please check my blog about persimmons in case you want to know more about them. If you want to make this dessert when Persimmons are not available, you can substitute with another fruit.

This is very tasty and easy to make, no baking required. Make ahead of time to share this dessert, your guests will love it and you would want to make it over and over again.

If you use other fruit for topping, just make sure it cuts well. it can be a special Dessert anytime.

You purchase UBE ice cream from Trader Joe's to make this dessert anytime and use different ice cream or different colored fruit.
