Ube Float Recipe

This ultra creamy dessert is the delicious version of the mango!

If you adore ube halaya, use the best-tasting one you can find so you'll truly enjoy the flavors that are in this dessert! This lovely purple dessert is just like your mango float recipe but with a few tweaks in the ingredients. 

Instead of mango, the whipped cream is mixed with ube flavoring. The resulting mixture is extra creamy and rich, without becoming heavy. This ensures that the dessert you'll eat is still light. Since sweet-on-sweet isn't always the best flavor combination, we swapped the graham crackers and used instead salty crackers! The salty crackers give this dessert a pop of saltiness without giving it too much. Plus, since crackers are creamy, it's another layer of creaminess when you take a bite of this dessert! 

Finally, the dessert is topped with even more ube. You can definitely use a piping bag to make these pretty fluted dots of ube halaya on top, but you can also spoon it on and spread it out as gently as you can. Do this after it has chilled until firm so you don't disturb the layers underneath.

The hardest part has to be waiting for the dessert to set so if you're planning this for a party or get-together, do it the day before. This way, when you slice into the dessert, you see all the magnificent layers you'll be tasting with every forkful of this ube float recipe.
