Purple yam soft serve?

We're being led to believe summer is coming this week. This has started up my craving for some purple yam soft serve (soft, specifically, for nostalgic reasons) -- does anyone in the lower mainland have it? I know the crepe place at Konbiniya does matcha soft serve, which could do in a pinch.

  1. Purple yam as in poi ("kalo")?

    La Casa Gelato is very open to new ideas and flavours. If they don't already have it, I bet if you proposed it to Signore Misceo he'd go for it :-)

      I'm thinking murasaki-imo (aka "ube," I think), though some places use satsumaimo (pics not mine).

      I think I've had La Casa Gelato's version, actually!

      1. I had some at Pearl Hot Pot in Burnaby, of all places.
