How to Make Ube Halaya Using Purple Yam Powder

I’ve already shared my Ube Halaya recipe using fresh/frozen ube. However, it is really difficult to find ube here in Denmark, so for this recipe, I rely on the powdered ube from Fil-Choice.

You will need:

  • 2 packs ube powder, 115 grams each pack from Fil-Choice
  • 6 cups water
  • 2 cans coconut milk (or 1 can coconut milk and 1 can coconut cream)
  • 1 can condensed milk
  • 100 grams brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp ube extract, optional
  • purple food color, optional
  • 2 to 3 tbsp butter
  • extra butter or vegetable oil, for greasing llaneras

Procedure (video):

  1. In a large saucepan (preferably non-stick), add ube powder and water, then let the ube powder soak in water for about 10 minutes or until rehydrated.
  2. Add coconut milk, coconut cream, condensed milk, and sugar. Stir until sugar is dissolved over medium heat. Stir constantly until the mixture forms into a thick paste or to the desired consistency.
  3. Then add ube extract, if using, and intensify the ube color; you can add purple food color.
  4. Once the ube halaya is thickened, add butter and stir again until it is completely thick.
  5. Transfer the cooked ube halaya in greased llaneras.

  1. Thanks so much for this post, also the pictures are of great help. Here in the Netherlands I can buy the same ube powder, so I have an idea of what good this powder is. I will definitely give this a try! =)
