These Paleo Chocolate Chip Scones with a Kombucha Ube glaze was gone so fast.  I mean like a day and a half fast.  The rule in this house is, if no one eat what I make you ain’t getting anything new as my freezer is super full already.  Any other recipe developers out there have the same problem??

What is Ube?

I’ve been wanting to make an Ube recipe for a long time.  What is Ube you ask?  This video best explains why it’s not the purple sweet potato in your grocery store.  The only place you can find it fresh is at an Asian Market, specifically ones that sell a majority of Filipino food like Seafood City.

With the pantone color of the year being a vibrant purple, using it as a natural coloring agent is super popular right now.  It actually doesn’t taste like anything, like a normal potato its pretty bland that is why traditionally lots of butter, sugar and condensed milk is added to bring out some flavor.

There hasn’t enough Filipino recipes on here and that is going to change this year.  Starting with this recipe that dips into using Ube in a non traditional way.

How to Make Ube Glaze

To make the ube glaze I used ube powder mixed with some Heath-ade Kombucha, then used the left over Kombucha to have with the Paleo Chocolate Chip Scones.

I served the hot out of the oven scones with some vegan cultured butter and yeah… I know why it went so fast.  It’s freaking good!

  1. Your scones look scrumptious! I’m completely fascinated by this powdered purple yam to color food. I have a huge Asian grocery store in my neighbored so I’m going to have to see if they carry it.

  2. Never thought of using Kombucha for a glaze, great idea. I have seen Ube at our local market but never knew how to use it. Great post and these scones looks amazing.

  3. These are absolutely beautiful! Love your pictures and man you did a GREAT job on this recipe! I’m definately sharing these with my paleo friends. Thanks for posting such an amazing post!

  5. I am new to paleo cooking but as a gf Cook I so can see the comparisons. This recipe looks delicious and perfect for breakfast treats or mid afternoon snack!

  6. oh YUMMM I love kombucha and I love ube so this sounds like perfection! Interesting to hear about the differences between ube and just ‘purple sweet potato’. I love baking with them and will have to try this!
