Honeydew Smoothie with Boba

Honeydew has always been my favorite flavor for bubble tea. In Los Angeles, we call a drink with tapioca pearls “boba” but in Seattle we called it bubble tea. The tapioca pearls are a divisive topic.

to make this smoothie, you’re going to prepare tapioca pearls by boiling them in water and a hint of sugar, then you will blend frozen honeydew with cucumber, mint, and coconut water. its sooo refreshing.

you might be wondering how to cook tapioca pearls. to cook tapioca pearls and make bubble tea, boil 10 cups of water for every 1 cup of tapioca pearls. and since tapioca pearls are nearly flavorless, you may want to sweeten them with a bit of honey, sugar, or stevia. just boil the tapioca pearls in water for 4 minutes, until they are all floating, and then drain/set aside.

hope you enjoy this homemade honeydew bubble tea recipe – this honeydew smoothie with boba!!!
