Ube, pronounced as “ooh-beh” is also called “Purple Yam”. It’s a unique and delicious ingredient that’s becoming more and more popular lately.
Originated from the Philippines, purple yam is usually used as a perfect addition to Filipino desserts.
It’s usually boiled and mashed with sweetened condensed milk to make Ube recipes such as Ube Halaya (sweet purple spread), and Ube ice cream.
But did you know Ube can also be used in a Latte?
Yup! You don’t have to visit the Philippines to enjoy Ube. Due to it’s rising popularity, it’s getting easier to find.
And the good news is… you make your own version at your home!
An Iced Ube Latte is a coffee drink that’s made with the extract of Ube or purple yam.
The said extract is mixed with some ice, almond milk, and espresso. You can also add toppings of your choice such as whipped cream or even ice cream.
Indeed, it’s a delicious drink and a unique substitute for a regular iced latte.
Ube Lattes often have a creamy and frothy texture with a sweet and nutty vanilla-like flavor. The Ube extract gives it a unique taste from a traditional iced latte.
The taste of the purple yam itself is frequently described as milder and less earthy than sweet potatoes. It also has a hint of nuttiness and a light sweetness.
When you blend it with milk and espresso, the Ube flavor is balanced with the rich and robust taste of coffee. Hence, a delicious and refreshing fresh Ube drink is made!
If made with minimal sugar, then yes, it could be healthy. Ube and coffee provide anti-inflammatory antioxidants. This drink is also vegan, gluten-free, and low in calories.
You may store iced lattes in the fridge for two days. You can also make espresso ahead of time and just chill it, then just make the drink whenever you want.
Ube is not a purple sweet potato, but a variety of yams. Sweet potatoes grow underground, while Ube grows on vines above ground. Although their flavors are similar, sweet potatoes have a dryer texture.
