I don't know if it's just me, but I can't go through my Instagram, Twitter, or Tik Tok feeds without a glimpse of that delicious purple yam we call Ube. At this point, I see it every day, so it might as well be my UBAE. Dad jokes, anyone? No? Ok, let's move on to the start of our possibly never-ending list of Ube desserts you need in your life right now!
In no particular order here we go...
Ube Bread Pudding from B Sweet in West Los Angeles and Downtown LA. If you live in LA and you haven't been here what are you doing?!
Ube Créme brûlée from Keepers in Downtown Los Angeles. I tried this decadent Ube masterpiece and 10 out of 10 would recommend.
Ube Bilog from Mamasons Dirty Ice Cream in London's Chinatown. This is Ube ice cream in between toasted pandesal. The perfect bread to ice cream ratio.
Ube Nawa from SNOICE in San Diego. This drink has an Okinawa blended base with brown sugar syrup, boba and topped with fluffy Ube whipped creme. This is a seasonal menu item, so I had to throw this in now. But don't worry, they have more Ube offerings.
Ube cookies from Brown Baked. These delicious cookies can be topped with white chocolate or oreo but even the plain cookies are incredibly delicious, I promise you!
Ube Truffles from Cafe 86. This masterpiece is a burst of Ube rolled into Oreo crumbles! As you can see below, they have a plethora of Ube selections on the menu.
Ube Macapuno Crinkles from Treat Yo'self Baked Goods. I know I shared some Ube cookies earlier, but there is always room for more, and these crinkles are it! FYI their whole crinkle selections are a must-try.
Ube upside-down pie from Ube Baby in Silverlake. Just look at that graham cracker crust on top tho! It comes in individual servings too. But you'd probably want a whole pie right?
Boba Ube Ice Cream from Magnolia. To round things off, here is something almost everyone can get their hands on. Magnolia says these are available at your local Asain market and selected Walmart Locations!

Guapdad 4000 & Illmind release the first project off their joint album with 88 Rising's Paradise Rising label called "How Many" below. While he is in Honolulu, Hawaii shooting the music video for one of their anticipated singles, "Chicken Adobo," he partnered with the legacy Magnolia Ice Cream & Treats company to provide essential and healthcare workers with a special Guapo halo halo.
Guapdad was in full Magnolia's uniform serving the halo halos to families, fans and workers that came into the shop to see him in the International Marketplace. It was the first time the GRAMMY nominated rapper experienced being in the service industry and everyone that attempted were charmed by his personality. Excited to see more from this project come to life that reconnects him with his Filipino roots. In the middle of day, his Lola (Grandma) called in from Arizona to check on him and mention to MYX how proud she was of him.
