What you need to know about the purple thing that is taking over the dessert world

Dessert chefs all over have been using a purple ingredient in their desserts to give the pop of color. Is this food dye? Or a secret recipe?


Actually, this is Ube. Ube is a Filipino ingredient that is similar to a sweet potato, but it is more commonly used in sweet dishes. It can be thought as a purple yam.

What does Ube taste like?

Ube is likely to be blended into cakes and ice creams, so the taste isn’t as distinct. Ube itself tastes slightly sweet with a few floral notes.

If you want to be in the “royal color” trend, you can try incorporating ube in your next desserts. Or try ube the next type you see it at a bakery.
