The color violet is widely associated with royalty and magic. These are two words that can describe how one feels after a delicious ube bite—royal and magical. And even better, ube’s creamy, distinct taste is a fantastic base for a myriad of sweet treats. From ice cream to cakes, here are 8 of the metro’s best ubae desserts!

Freezer burn transforms the iconic Good Shepherd ube jam into ice cream. They don’t stop there. That rich ube ice cream is topped with meringue bits and served with purple cotton candy as well as warm cheese muffins. This is an ubae dessert that’s one for the books.
