Taro Ice Cream


My family loves Taro. I remember once upon a time, taro was my most favorite bubble tea flavors.  I think I know why I love taro.  It’s because my grandma had bought some UBE ice cream from the Phillippines when I was young, and I felt in love immediately with that bright purple creamy ice cream.  I went to Manila two years ago, and to my biggest disappointment the Mongolia ice cream company sold their products to Nestle.  Thus I came empty handed with no ice cream from the Phillippines.

Homemade ice cream has less synthetic ingredients and has more natural flavor.  There must be a good taro ice cream recipe out there, unfortunately I could not find a promising recipe online.  Thus I’m adapting from the pistachio recipe and it tastes great.

Pistachio ice cream


Whenever I eat to an ice cream parlour, I always order pistachio gelato.  I love its creaminess and pistachio’s mild nutty taste.   During my first anniversary trip to Portland, I bought an inexpensive ice cream maker from Costco.  Not sure if it’s my freezer that’s not cold enough or it’s the ice cream maker, the mixture is still runny after the expected 30 minutes process time.  Although it’s a pain to manually finish by alternating freezing and mixing, the product is satisfying without too much artificial additives found in store-brought ice cream.   This ice cream gets hard easily, thus it’s best to enjoy it within a couple days after making it.
