I am no bookworm and I don't have bucks to treat myself or my friend a ticket to the cinema. Oh, I forgot, we don't have tickets in here now, blame Tap to Pay swiping system. Most of my family members just stayed at home this Holy Week. And it is really hot nowadays and all we just need today is a cup of cold water or anything that freezes.
Good thing Mom found some taro crops at the backyard and cooked and grated them. Since she just consumed 3/4 part of it from making Ube-Halaya, she asked me to make homemade ice cream for the family. I never tried to negate her command. ^_^
Apologizing if I couldn't share that ice cream recipe here, it's a family recipe. Thanks!
Just showing you guys how messy I work in our kitchen when I enjoy the thing I do.
Here's the finished product and I am very proud that I made 3 (three) small loaf pans out of three cups of grated boiled ube (taro).
I know, I know. That ice cream can be eaten alone, but why not add a twist?
The day after making that purple good-looking ice cream, I've made some choux pastry (Click here for my Homemade Cream Puff recipe.). Pinoys were known to fill a bun with ice cream and from that, I got the idea that cream puffs can be best paired with this cold dessert. OHA!
Next time, I will try making custard ice cream so it will best fit those puffs. :)
How about you guys? Have you created refreshing treats for your family this summer season too?
