Have you tried ube desserts before? You might have seen photos of the bright purple treats popping up on your Instagram feed. The eye-catching lavender-coloured sweets are trendy in the Philippines. Here in Canada, we've recently been having more cafes opening where you can enjoy all purple everything. But did you know we can enjoy ube desserts in Edmonton too?
Yelo'd Bake Shoppe is located at 10150A 82 Ave. N.W. in Edmonton. The Filipino dessert shop specializes in delicious soft serve and baked goods like cookies, pastries, doughnuts, and cakes.
What is ube exactly? It's a purple yam with a surprisingly vivid colour. It has a subtle nutty flavour that pairs well with many desserts.
The options are different throughout the year, with new seasonal treats added all the time. On their Instagram account, they regularly announce the new desserts available.
If you are looking for a fun twist on a Canadian classic, you have to try their purple Nanaimo bars. The nutty flavour of the yam pairs nicely with the chocolate topping.
For a more classic Filipino snack, order an ensaymada. It's a light and fluffy dessert covered in buttercream and an ube crumble.
This bakery also specializes in soft serve and has rotating flavours throughout the year.
They have unique flavours like Filipino coffee, malted chocolate, coconut pandan, animal cracker, and avocado.
Now that the cold weather has arrived, Yelo'd Bake Shoppe is also serving hot ice cream. You can pick one of the soft-serve flavours, and have it served warm in a 12-ounce mug.
With so many tasty options, it might be hard to order just one thing at this purple lover's paradise.
