"Dirty ice cream" as pointed out is a "misnomer" because it is sold by street vendors using a not-so-appealing cart. There were stories that tagged the female students from an exclusive school in Manila as the ones who originated the popular term. Anyways, "Filipino ice cream" (I wouldn't call it "dirty") is made using "skim milk powder" (not whole milk) as a base with coconut milk as extender plus flavorings. These would differentiate it from branded or commercial ice cream in the market. I used to be a dairy technologist so I am familiar with these things. I hope this information clarifies matters.

Sorbetes or "dirty ice cream" as commonly called because it is sold along the streets exposing it to pollution and that the factory where it comes from is usually unknown; though it is not really 'dirty' as the name implies.=p
