I went to the Asian Market the other day and they had some Tapioca pearls and bubble tea straws. I had wanted to try bubble tea and so I bought them and brought them home. My kids were intrigued/excited to try this new drink. I have spent the last fews days browsing online to find some good recipes. I woke up to this request this morning 🙂
I decided to make it smoothie style and based it loosely on Emma and Elsie’s recipe. I basically threw some frozen strawberries in my blender (about 3/4 full) with 4 cups water and 3/4 cup sugar. I blended it all together. I put a few spoonfuls of the prepared boba (I bought 5 minute cook kind and followed the directions on the bag) soaked in honey into a glass and then poured the smoothie on top. I added the half and half last to make it strawberry and cream flavored.
The verdict? It’s really tasty! I was a little scared of the pearls, I don’t like tapioca pudding at all, but they were yummy and fun to chew. My kids liked it! I think I will only do 1/2 cup sugar next time, it is a tad too sweet for my tastes.
I am excited to try it with tea next! If anyone has any yummy recipes to share I would love to have them 🙂
