Ube Latte

August is a very important month in our history. 

 

Yesterday, August 7th, was National Purple Heart Day. 

August 6th was a memorial day in Japan for an atomic bomb was dropped in Hiroshima.

Tomorrow, August 9th, is another memorial day for us for the second atomic bomb was dropped in Nagasaki.

Next Monday, 8/15, is a memorial day in Japan to celebrate the end of World War Ⅱ. 

 

There must be much more important memorial days for each of us depending on where their root is from to pay respect for those who fought during hard times for their countries, but in the bottom line of what I want to say in this post is I want to take a moment to respect those people, doesn’t matter where they’re from or who they fought for. 

 

Even though we learned more than enough from the dark time of history, there is still war going on all around the country. Is it just a dream that one day we all can share a cuppa in a relaxing afternoon with anyone without worrying about tomorrow? I hope it’s not just a dream. We must pursue that to be reality. Everyone deserves peace.

Ube cream

 

<Directions>

  1. Mix milk, sugar and ube extract in a sauce pot and bring it to high. When the content is warmed up, remove from heat and transfer it to a cup.
  2. Mix whipped cream, sugar and ube extract and make whipped cream.
  3. Place the ube whipped cream over the latte and enjoy!

 

<Cooking Tips>

I use a food processor to make whipped cream, but if you’re using a food processor, you’ll need enough cream to be whipped in order to make the blade hitting the liquid of cream. What I do is empty out ½ carton of whipped cream to make fluffy whipped cream, then add flavor to it. Make sure you remember you have the other half carton of cream in the fridge. Whipped creams are so perishable! Some say we can freeze it, but I never did it before…has anyone froze your whipped cream?

Let’s hope for peace. We never ever want to go back to that dark history.

    You are so wise. I would love to share a cuppa with you, talk about history or recipes 🙂 The dates you list are so important in history; we all should never forget. Unfortunately, there are people that do not want to remember important parts of history and are trying to rewrite it.

    Love and peace my friend. Have a great day 🙂

      Thank you Michelle❤️ You’re right, and because of that people trying to rewrite the history makes confusing classroom. I even had my history class that “seemed” biased and got controversy without kids knew something was going on(and later we found out by eavesdropping parents – teacher meetings)

      You too, have a wonderful day😊💕✨

    I grew up eating ube as a kid in the Philippines. I never thought that ube would reach this height of foodie popularity in the US. 🙂 I am with you in wishing and hoping for peace in our community and the world.
