EAT | Bubble Tea (Kid-Friendly)

Published on August 29, 2016

Bubble tea or Boba is ridiculously fun to eat and, lucky for me, very easy to make. Have fun putting the tapioca pearls in all sorts of smoothies and drinks once you see how simple it is! You will need an extra thick straw, so be prepared! Subscribe to WUM for new vids M-W-F!


1 cup tapioca pearls
• 2 cups milk
• 1 cup frozen strawberries
• 1 cup frozen mangos
• optional agave for sweetness
optional extra wide boba straws

1. Cook tapioca pearls according to package directions. Ours say to add tapioca pearls into bowling water. Boil for 3 minutes. Cover and turn off heat. Let simmer for 3 minutes. Put pearls into cool water for 20 seconds and then drain.
2. Blend milk and frozen fruit until smooth (will be a very thin smoothie consistency but feel free to make thicker by adding more fruit).
3. Add pearls to a glass, pour in milk and enjoy! You’ll need a thick straw!

Meg grew up in Connecticut and when she wasn’t busy pretending to be a mom, she was in the kitchen learning family recipes. She won over her husband, Alan, whom she met her freshman year at Stanford, with some very fancy homecooked meals. After working in finance and strategy for Gap and NBC-Universal, Meg returned to Stanford where she earned her MBA. Now with three kids of her own (Avery, 5; Brooks, 4 and Ryder 1), Meg’s husband doesn’t see too many of those fancy meals. But her kids eat very well! She believes good food is all it takes to make a friend, and she is grateful for all the friends she has made through her videos.

  1. Bubble tea is basically the ultimate asian dessert,Im actually suprised that Avery like the bubbles in the tea because some people only like thhe tea and not the boba,THE BEST PART

  2. I still don't understand what is buble tea? why it is buble? why it is called tea if it just fruit juice with "bubu" or whatever it called? and it is "bubu"? those small black balls?😐

  3. This is good because the nearest boba tea areas are in Tampa (Kung Fu Tea, BobaCup, LolliCup) and I live in New Port Richey. And luckily, there's tapioca pearls in my nearest Vietnamese market, and there's even rainbow color pearls. Thanks for the recipe 👍🏻

  4. When I was younger, my mom told me tapioca (as in the pudding) was fish eggs. I was so scared I didn't eat it for years until I found out she was lying. My own mother was trying to keep me away from PUDDING e.e
