Slushy bubble tea.

For drink base:
  • 1/4 cup of tea base. (Jasmine, green tea, oolong, etc.)
  • 2 spoonfuls of sugar.
  • Ice cubes.
  • 1/2 cup of milk.
  • Flavour powder. (Or if you want chocolate, you can use hot chocolate mix, coffee; coffee mix...)
Tapioca pearls:
  • 1/2 cup of tapioca pearls.
  • Honey/simple syrup/maple syrup.
  • Water.

Like a boba milk tea, but a smoothie texture... for this recipe, I used 2 spoons of horlicks malt drink and 1 tablespoon of cocoa.

  1. Prepare tapioca pearls. Boil them in a pot of hot water for 30-45 minutes, till they're all soft throughout.
  2. Drain tapioca pearls, run through ice cold water and drench with syrup. Set aside.
  3. In a blender, put your ice, tea base, sugar, milk and flavour powder. Blend until smoothie texture.
  4. In a glass, put tapioca pearls on bottom, add your smoothie and drink with a big fat bubble tea straw.
