Ube (Purple Sweet Potato) Pie

Ube (Purple Sweet Potato) Pie

Jump to Recipe

I absolutely love incorporating new flavors and beautiful colors into my recipes. A few years ago, I found out about the wonderful vegetable called ube. It originates in east Asia, and has been used in that part of the world for ages. It is so flavorful and just perfect for incorporating into recipes. In my opinion, it tastes much like a sweet potato, but even thicker and creamier. This is why I thought it would make for a great purple sweet potato pie!

How to make your purple sweet potato pie

  • Start by cutting, peeling, and chopping your purple potatoes.
  • Boil them for about 20 minutes, or until they are so soft that you can easily stick a fork in them.
  • Then mash them up and measure out two cups. Now add the two cups of sweet potato to a large bowl and add the rest of the ingredients.
  • Use a hand mixer to combine the ingredients well.
  • Once you have your creamy filling, transfer it to your pie crust.
  • Cook the pie for about 45-50 minutes at 350*F and make sure you give it plenty of time to cool!
