Make Syrup

  • Combine brown sugar and water in a small bowl and heat in microwave.
    2 T brown sugar, 2 T water
  • Stir until the brown sugar is completely dissolved in the water. 

Cook Boba Pearls

  • Cook the boba pearls according to package directions.
    Typical instructions:
    Heat 6 cups of water in a pot and bring to a boil. Add boba pearls and cover with lid. Simmer for 3 minutes, remove lid and simmer for additional 3 minutes.
    1/3 cup boba pearls
  • Drain boba and place in the brown sugar syrup.
  • Allow to cool.


  • When boba pearls are cooled, combine red bean paste and milk in a blender. Blend on low speed.
    Do not over-blend, or else the milk will become very foamy.
    Low quick pulses help reduce the amount of foam produced.
    3 cups milk, 2/3 cup sweet red bean paste


  • Place drink in cups and add boba pearls.
    Add sugar syrup to taste for added sweetness.
    Drink with boba straws. 



Change this recipe up by using black tea, milk, and red bean paste if you prefer a tea based bubble tea.
