Bubble, bubble… TEA

BUBBLE TEA!🍵 Its become quite popular, but if you don’t know what is it, it is a Korean/Japanese drink which includes tapioca boba (bubbles) and milk tea usually. This recipe is not like a traditional drink whatsoever haha but this was pretty easy to make and not a ton of sugar like normal bubble tea. The boba (tapioca bubbles) are usually soaked in a sugar syrup until use😶 Mine was definitely not as sweet (obviously) but I still loved it!! And your getting all the benefits of gelatin!

Bubble Tea (print here )

For the jello “boba”

Ingredients:

2 tbsp gelatin powder (good, quality brand. We use Great Lakes)

1/4 cup warm water

1 cup coconut water

1 tbsp maple syrup

Directions:

  1. Pour warm water in an 8×8 pan (should be almost boiling)
  2. Pour gelatin powder over water, 1 tablespoon at a time while stirring
  3. Mix coconut water and maple syrup together and pour over gelatin
  4. Mix together very well, making sure all gelatin has been dissolved (took me about 1-2 minutes)
  5. Place in fridge for 1-2 hours

For the liquid

Ingredients:

1/2 cup coconut milk

1 cup water

1 tbsp. Matcha powder

1 tbsp honey (more if you like it sweet)

Directions:

  1. Blend all ingredients together and place in fridge until jello is ready
  2. When jello is firm, cut into pieces small enough for your straw
  3. Place jello and matcha drink into a cup and enjoy!

This makes one serving of the matcha drink and a whole pan of jello, which I just cut up and placed in the fridge for later!

*I think this would also work well with my matcha jello! Recipe on the blog as well on a post called “Healthy Travel” Link
