Halayang Ube

Halayang ube is a dessert made from boiled mashed ube (purple yam) mixed with coconut milk, evaporated milk, and sugar. In the olden days, a fine consistency was achieved by passing the mixture through a piece of sinamay. With its bright color, it is a favorite at fiestas. Also, it is typically served during Christmas season.
